The 07-Cougar is born from the solid and tested base of the 07S. It is our most sporty, dynamic and configurable model, from the basic version. We have created a gyroplane that provides a true sensation of freedom under its controls. The 07-Cougar is noted for its exceptional performance, agility, maneuverability, along with a powerful pre-rotator.

From the standard model, you can go futher and configure your 07-Cougar to create a personalized one that can compate with our “top-models’.

Thanks to its high performance, the ELA 07-Cougar was able to beat the FAI World distance and speed records in the category of light gyroplane.
