The Dynali Helicopter Company employs about 20 people. In the early 80’s, the company was just called Dynali (“helicopter” being added to the name later). At that time, the founder, Jacques Tonet designed the famous Chickinox ; a revolutionary ultra-light 3-axis aircraft made from stainless steel and aluminium. But by the beginning of the new millennium, the arrival in the market of new ultra-light aircraft constructed in carbon fiber and innovative designs brought the first generation of ultra-light airplanes to an end. Thierry Blanchart, who had been successful in a number of business ventures including the hotel and catering industry, injected new capital into the company and provided it with the means to spend several years in research and development. Company supplies kits and flyaway helicopters. Also offers builder assistance.
