Nortavia opts for ten eGyro electric aircraft
With its efficient design, safety characteristics and range, the Skyworks eGyro positions Nortavia Transportes Aeros to meet the ever-growing demand for sustainable aviation training capabilities and services.
With an autorotating main rotor, the eGyro is fundamentally safe and overcomes a key limitation of many eVTOL systems concepts.

Nortavia Transportes Aeros is to purchase 10 of Skyworks Aeronautics' eGyro eVTOL aircraft.

“With our many years of preparing pilots for both civilian and commercial flight operations, our team at Nortavia is ecstatic to add Skyworks' best in class electric gyro to our growing fleet,” says Cassiano Rodrigues, CEO of Nortavia. “With its efficient design, superb safety characteristics and impressive range, this spectacular platform effectively positions us to meet the ever-growing demand for sustainable aviation capabilities and services, with a particular focus on training the next generation of e-platform operators and maintainers.”

Nortavia is a commercial flight training and maintenance certification academy in operation for over 30 years at Maia in Porto, Portugal.

Skyworks CEO John E. Michel adds: “We could not be more grateful and appreciative of the trust and confidence the superb team at Nortavia is placing in us and our eGyro. We are also excited about the prospects of working with this very experienced team to develop eGyro training and maintenance certification programmes for customers in Europe, Africa and South America.”

The Skyworks eGyro has been designed to leverage the fundamental safety and performance advantages of a gyroplane to create an eVTOL system that provides a practical approach to intra- and inter-city passenger transport. With an autorotating main rotor, the eGyro is fundamentally safe and overcomes a key limitation of many eVTOL systems concepts.
