Learn to Fly a Cabri G2 Helicopter!
It starts with a Cabri Transition Course: Helicopter Flight Lessons DC, MD,VA, PA, DE
The Cabri G2 is a two-seat light helicopter with a three-bladed fully articulated main rotor and a Fenestron-type tail rotor. The main rotor is designed to enable flight within a wide envelop of weather conditions, while the composite rotor blades are damage-tolerant and have no set life span. The use of the Fenestron-type tail rotor has been credited as having made the Cabri noticeably quieter than competing rotorcraft such as the Sikorsky S-300; in addition to its favorable safety, handling, and maneuverability. The Cabri uses a skid landing gear arrangement with the skids are attached to the fuselage by elastomeric mounts rather than being directly bolted onto the fuselage reduce ground resonance and provide greater articulation. The fuselage features a damage-resistant all-composite monocoque construction, reducing weight and maintenance requirements while increasing strength. Numerous safety features are present upon the aircraft; including the design of the main rotor, a crash-worthy fuselage design, four-way trim system, energy-absorbent structure/seats, automatic carburetor ice-protection system, crash-resistant fuel tank, and exceptional autorotation capabilities.
The Cabri is powered by a single 180 hp Lycoming O-360 piston engine, which has been derated to 145 hp. The engine incorporates a solid-state electronic ignition system, which protects against over-speed upon startup and has greater reliability. The engine mounts also utilize vibration isolation techniques for increased crew comfort. The engine is positioned directly behind the cabin, making it easier to access for maintenance; while the engine exhaust is elevated above the tail boom in order to reduce noise and lower the risk of ground fires upon landing. The Cabri employs a side-by-side seating arrangement for a pilot and passenger, which is also ideal for it’s training role. Various features for personal helicopter usage include an externally accessible baggage compartment, power outlets within the main cabin, leather seating, and incidental under-seat storage. An unusual feature of the Cabri is a remote door locking system, which includes an immobilizer function; this has been reported as being a world-first. The Cabri is also the first two-seat helicopter to feature a glass cockpit.
