RotorWay 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.

Process controls and designs with the new Talon’s manufacture at Rotorway’s new factory, are specifically aimed at the company’s plan to develop and deliver a certified helicopter. The A600 Talon is to be built in the new facility, on the new line, under the new processes that are being set up and proven to enable the certified machine to follow as early as 2011 in the United States. These new processes, materials, and documentation on the experimental, owner-built A600 Talon are designed to mesh into the processes and controls to be used on the future certified machine. The result is that the Talon will be built to type certified standards, of certified materials. First customer deliveries are set for October 2007.
