Passion for innovation:
The first helicopter developed and manufactured in Hungary.
The Hungarocopter project was created to develop a widely available light helicopter.
The idea was born in 2007, and as the continuous design development progressed, more and more sophisticated solutions, main and component constructions were developed.
In 2010, the HC-01 with high technical content and innovative solutions was completed. As the first ultralight helicopter designed and manufactured in Hungary, it received a flight permit from the Hungarian Aviation Authority. Later, several pieces of this type were sold on the Hungarian and international markets.
Development continued with a more powerful single-person type,
which incorporates a revolutionary self-developed electric rescue system (ERS). As a result, in the event of a helicopter engine failure, this allows for a safe landing.
This model has also received a permit to fly in Hungary.
After several years of design and production preparation, in 2021 two versions of the Hungarocopter HC-02 suitable for transport were completed. Equipped with an aircraft engine, the Rotax 915 IS is more efficient than currently available helicopters due to its ultra-lightweight design and efficient power supply. Also, its operating costs are at least 25% lower than helicopters in similar categories.
The Hungarocopter HC-02 was tested, documented and manufactured in accordance with the requirements described in the Hungarian 21/2015 (V.4) NFM and the German DULF (LTF – ULH vom 28.02.2019) regulations during its construction.
As of June 8, 2021, it has the necessary flight permit, registration certificate and flight permit for test flights in Hungary and Slovakia.
Patents and innovations built into the Hungarocopter HC-02:
- Electrical Rescue System
- Automatic anti-tip device.
- Center of gravity offset, compensation with movable fuel tank system.
- Self-developed, high-efficiency and quiet-running rotors (Silent Type)
