MAI-205 is a single seater rotating-wing aircraft. It’s made from high-quality alloy steel, aluminium and titanium alloys, composite materials, textiles, etc.
The fuselage is made from aluminium tubes. The cockpit is fully enclosed with two doors with glazing made from organic glass. The nose fairing is made from glass-fibre plastic.
Tail unit is strut- and wire-braced, made from fabric covering aluminium tubes.
Landing gear — tricycle. The spring of main gear is made from titanium alloy. Main wheels (tire 300×125) are equiped with brakes. Brake system is hydraulic. The nose wheel (tire 300×125) is controlled by pedals.
Controls is mechanical, reversal. Autogyro is controlled through rotor hub control mechanism, rudder and elevator with controllable trimmer.
Rotor — two-bladed, made from fiberglass.
Jumping takeoff mechnism let autogyro realize jumping-off. Rotor comes untwisted at the ground, then pilot pushes the button on the control stick, the rotor-blade angle increases to 10 degrees, the autogyro jumps, then the rotor-blade angle decreases to 4 degrees and with the help of pusher airscrew autogyro turns into speed acceleration and climbing.
