The Flypad 

With all its exclusive features, the iPad support has been a bestseller since its introduction: More than one per helicopter is sold - some have one on each side! Needless to say, it’s not easy to keep up with the constant evolution of the tablets. A new version of the support is now available on new helicopters and for retrofit: It nicely fits the newest iPad Air and accommodates any iPhone or iPad Mini for charging.

No Life-Limited Components

The Cabri G2 has no life-limited components, meaning: On condition – no calendar! … meaning: Super efficient maintenance costs!
Main gear box & tail gear box overhaul: 2200 hrsFuel tank: 15 years. 

The Maintenance-Free Rotor

… is incredibly strong, amazingly maneuverable and comes with a lot of inertia for safe, demonstrative and forgiving utorotations. 

You may fly with confidence in winds and turbulence that would ground most light helicopters. The Fenestron tail rotor provides excellent maneuverability and safety for people on the ground. Crosswinds and flare become a no-brainer.


The innovative emergency float installation offers unusual features: No change in performance or flight envelope, removal/ installation in minutes by the pilot due to quick-disconnects, manual or automatic deployment by high-reliability sensors.

Roomy Cockpit

Cabri occupants enjoy a roomy, luxurious, leather-clad cockpit, with perfect all-round visibility and outstanding ergonomics.

We wish everyone blue skies and many happy landings!
