The New A600 Talon
The A600 Talon is a top-to-bottom redesign, incorporating many customer-initiated requests, advanced electronics, engineering, and convenience items. The cockpit is now all-glass, using the MGL Avionics system. The completely redesigned and tuned FADEC system now has a secondary FADEC as a clone of the primary. Any failure of the primary unit will be imperceptible to the engine informing the pilot on the MGL display. The 162’s primary drive chain is replaced by a heavy-duty cog belt for ease of maintenance and longevity.
The useful load is 535 pounds, including a 100-pound luggage compartment. Economy cruise is a practical 90mph and fast long-distance cruise has already been demonstrated at 100 plus, with the doors off! The landing gear is 10 inches wider, 10 inches longer, and 7” higher than its smaller predecessor the Exec 162. This enables improvements in strength and stability, while offering greater accessibility underneath for the optional accessory luggage pod.
The A600 is the most advanced and highest quality kit of its kind. Decades of revision and refinement within its design and manufacturing process have resulted in a helicopter kit unmatched in its industry. RotorWay’s commitment to ensure that each of the components are tested and held to the highest standard, make the A600 the #1 choice of builders worldwide.
RotorWay is dedicated to getting you in the air. The A600 kit is designed for the amateur builder and provides the customer everything needed for final assembly and flight. The airframe, tail boom, engine and rotor system, all come factory assembled and ready for installation. Blueprints, templates and construction and maintenance manuals are included. Technical support is available over the phone, online and through the factory maintenance course.
Lifting off for the first time in a helicopter that you built is a feeling that only a few could ever imagine. Owning, building and flying your own RotorWay will give you the opportunity to have that feeling. The A600’s favourable flight characteristics and inherent stability make initial training, as well as transition training, a fun and rewarding experience, just another reason why the A600 is the leading helicopter kit worldwide!
