STUNNINGLY BEAUTIFUL FROM EVERY ANGLE
Inside and out the HX50 helicopter represents a masterpiece of sleek, elegant contours, sculpted along futuristic lines for maximum performance, and providing the utmost in enjoyment for pilot and four passengers.

SUPERLATIVE FLYING EXPERIENCE
Every feature has been engineered for the ultimate in utility, safety, convenience and especially aesthetic appeal, from streamlined blades to deep panoramic windows to sturdy undercarriage, with a choice of two types of landing gear. The doors open wide for accessibility, making it easy for passengers to enter and exit, while a generous luggage compartment is provided for stowing your bags. Passengers can settle in to relax and wonder at the sights of the journey, with exceptional viewing opportunities created by a continuous sweep of windows that includes a skylight and a glass panel below at foot level.
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.
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.
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.
An aesthetic triumph, streamlined and elegant but at the same time robust, assuring top performance in off-airfield locations, on unprepared surfaces, in almost any situation, however unexpected.
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. The Hill HX50 chopper is priced from $648,000.
