CONVENIENCE AND PERFORMANCE

The retractable undercarriage is ideal for effortless point-to-point long distance travel where fast cruising flight is a priority and the only limitation is your imagination. At the same time it offers optimum manoeuvrability on the ground.

ROBUST AND RELIABLE

Both the nose and main gear retract, using a simple hydraulic system, isolated from the flight controls and able to lock the gear up, down and deploy even in the event of a complete lack of hydraulic power.

FLEXIBILITY AND RUGGEDNESS

As an alternative to retractable wheels, the beautifully designed, modern fixed skid system features a wide skid heel and steel wear shoes, perfect for easier landing in remote locations with rugged terrain, including snow, mud and loose gravel.

SOLID AND STABLE

Not only do you save on weight, but you can be ready for the roughest hill top or the muddiest field – practically no destination is unattainable, however challenging the terrain you are facing.

Luggage Compartment

TRAVEL IN STYLE

Hill have made it a top priority to design a luggage compartment spacious enough to hold all the bags a pilot and four passengers would need for any mission.

AMPLE AND ACCESSIBLE

A generous capacity of 0.7 cubic metres, a lot more than you get in the average car, that offers the right dimensions and proportions to support all your pursuits and passions: suitcases, golf bags, rucksacks, skis, or gear for fishing, camping, climbing, photography and much more.

CLEAN GETAWAY ASSURED

Whatever adventure beckons, whether it’s a weekend trip with the family, a heli-skiing expedition to the mountains with friends, or a point-to-point business rendezvous, you will find it easy to stow and retrieve your luggage in a space that has been designed to be surprisingly roomy and flexible, so that you can arrange your luggage in any configuration that suits you.

Easy access

ENTER AND EXIT
THE AIRCRAFT WITH EASE

With doors that open extra wide front and back, the HX50 has set a new standard for passenger access and comfort in a light helicopter.
Panoramic Ceiling

SENSATIONAL VIEWS

For the feeling that you are not just looking at the sky, but immersed in it, nothing can compare to the surround-style expanse of glass windows that is unique to the HX50.

UNSURPASSED VISIBILITY

Whether you are at the controls or a passenger, the experience of freedom created by being surrounded by a futuristic array of uninterrupted windows, including a large skylight, allowing unobstructed views in all directions, is vastly superior to anything available in any existing light helicopter.

Retractable Blades

EASY TO PARK

By choosing the option of retractable blades you could even keep your HX50 in less space than a two-blade helicopter.

BLADE FOLD SYSTEM

When folded back in the retracted position, the blades fit perfectly to the shape of the aircraft, making it compact enough to fit into confined spaces. Used together with the Helimove Smart System, you get even greater ease of control on the ground.
