As part of the DRIADE regional program, financed by the Lombardy Region, in the two-year period 2009-2010 Vicoter participated in the creation of an ultra-light Italian-made aircraft. The activity involved the autogyro M-24 Orion produced by MagniGyro as an aircraft. An engine produced by MetalWork was installed on the aircraft.

Vicoter has dealt with three activities, in particular:

  1. Dynamic characterization of the autogyro blades.
  2. Characterization of the dampers installed between the engine and the structure.
  3. Measurement of in-flight vibrations of the autogyro.
