China’s Sichuan Dahua Acquires Austria’s ArrowCopter

Sichuan Dahua General Aircraft Manufacturing Company of China has acquired the entire assets of European gyrocopter company, ArrowCopter. Production of the all-composite ArrowCopter will remain in Austria.

Sichuan Dahua General Aircraft Manufacturing Company is committed to investing in production in Europe. There will also be a parallel, complementary certification program to prepare the ArrowCopter for serial production in China.  Dahua will continue to further develop the business, focusing on R&D upgrades on the ArrowCopter series, as well as streamlining production within Europe and China.

The market potential for Gyrocopters in Asia is developing rapidly, especially in China, where the ArrowCopter will be certified in the Lightweight Sports (LSA category). Three Gyrocopter manufacturers have already been certified by the CAAC (LSA) in China.
