Heard that Rotorway announced at Heli Expo it was thinking about certifying the 162F. I wonder if they will have to replace the tailrotor drive belts with a driveshaft? They were estimating the helicopter to be around $135,000.00. Curious what you think about the little Rotorway? If certified, It could lower the training costs for new pilot ratings....

Boy, you gotta love translations.

As much as I would never fly this thing uncertified ( and then add 5 years)...you gotta admit its a damn attractive bird:

It's still not an FAA certified powerplant for the US of A the 162 is destine to be an experimental a/c until the powerplant is replaced with a certified one or the exsisting one makes FAA certifications, (not likely) I like the machine in general, just would prefer it be with certified components :blink:
