Rotorway KISS conversion?


Recommended Posts

IMO safe and helicopter are not really synonymous! But if you were to rank helicopter safety on a spectrum, a kit built helicopter is pretty low. On the other hand 80% of accidents are human error so if he does a good job building it, and is a good pilot, it's likely as safe as he is.


I know very little about rotorways and even less about the turbine engine option but a common thread with them is to spend years building it then roll it over on one of the early flights. Why doesn't he look into a used R22 instead? He could probably get one for the same price and it's a tried and true certified helicopter.


Those who actally fly Rotorways can fill us in on their experience.
