In more than 60 years of career, Augusto Cicaré (Augusto Cicaré – Wikipedia / Augusto Cicaré – Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia ) was able to display exceptional talent for R&D. He is a pioneer of solutions and systems worldwide, and of the category of ultralight helicopters itself.

Today, accompanied by his family and a team of experts who have brought all that history to a world-renowned and unique R&D company.

Between his 11 to 14 years, Agusto Cicare builds his first four-stroke engine to run a washing machine, designs a 500 cm3 engine, and his four-speed gearbox with an overhead camshaft.


At 18 years of age, he develops and manufactures a 6 (six) HP two-stroke, single-cylinder, stationary type diesel engine.


The image of a helicopter in a popular mechanics magazine awakens his passion for helicopters and begins to figure out how to make one and build it.


With only the materials at hand, he finished building the Cicaré CH-1 helicopter, the first of its kind developed and built in the American southern hemisphere.
