Upgrading the helicopter experience
From the ground up, the HX50 has been conceived as a genuinely best of breed personal helicopter, crafted upon field-proven engineering, state-of-the-art manufacturing and iconic British design.

Introducing a first of its kind platform, every minute detail has been elaborately crafted to deliver a helicopter specifically focused on the needs of private owners. The HX50 will be able to effortlessly carry five passengers and luggage, with a level of comfort, luxury and refinement never before seen in a light aircraft.

Led by the inspiring vision of helicopter pioneer Jason Hill and meticulously researched and architected throughout the past 13 years, the HX50 is designed, developed and manufactured in Britain by a world-class team of engineers, set on a mission to deliver an exquisite flying and ownership experience.

Adventure awaits you, far beyond the road.

Performance

Relentless power. Beneath the distinctive elegance of the HX50 lies a muscular 500shp turbine engine, capable of effortlessly lifting off vertically, fully laden at 10,000ft, or cruising serenely at 140kts through blissful skies. You will be captivated by the unrivalled performance, delightful handling and unmatched flying experience, delivered by the ingenious design and engineering. The HX50 elegantly embodies the finest in power, technology, safety and refinement ever offered to the general aviation market. It isn’t so much a helicopter, but rather the first aerial Grand Tourer ever built.

Purpose

Expect the unexpected. When it comes to light helicopters, conventional wisdom would suggest that you cannot have a spacious, sumptuous interior with panoramic views for five passengers. It would also dictate that you cannot have a large bay to accommodate full-sized suitcases. And it would certainly remind you that vast fuel reserves for genuine touring would be out of the question. Except these are exactly the attributes that make a helicopter flexible, desirable and worth owning. The HX50 has been developed according to the laws of physics, not conventional wisdom, and delivering these capabilities is precisely what gives the HX50 true purpose, genuine usability, and a peerless spot in the market.

Freedom

Picture this. What if you could easily fly between business meetings during the week, effortlessly visit distant relatives and friends over the weekend, or even depart for that far flung adventure with your family, at a moment’s notice. Suddenly, the unreachable becomes attainable and the exotic becomes enticing again. It doesn't get any better than this. It's like your dream car, except it’s so much more than a car. A helicopter gives you unprecedented freedom. The HX50 makes that freedom yours.
