The Cavalon is a two-seats-in-side-by-side configuration development of the tandem-seating AutoGyro Calidus. It features a single main rotor, an enclosed cockpit with a complete aerodynamic cockpit fairing, tricycle landing gear with wheel pants and a four-cylinder, air and liquid-cooled, four-stroke, dual-ignition 100 hp (75 kW) Rotax 912 engine or turbocharged 115 hp (86 kW) Rotax 914 or 142 hp (101 kW) Rotax 915iS engine in pusher configuration.
The aircraft fuselage is made from composites and is a faired teardrop shape to ensure smooth airflow over the variable pitch pusher propeller. Its 27.6 ft diameter rotor has a chord of 7.9 inches. The aircraft has a gross weight of 990 lbs. The design incorporates vibration dampers that greatly reduce the level of main rotor vibration transmitted to the cockpit.
