hillhorn


The Hillman Hornet, first flown in 1978, was top rotorcraft award winner at Oshkosh ‘78 and received the Best Helicopter Design honors at the Popular Rotorcraft Convention in Rockford, Illinois. Developed in 1979, in 1980 a Turbo Hornet was in production. Standard features include a comfortable cockpit for two, excellent visibility, room for a variety of avionics and dual controls. Flight performance has been favorably compared with that of the Hughes 300. The Hornet was available in kit form for owner assembly for $29,950 under one of several factory-supervised programs. Assembly assistance is available at the factory in addition to flight training. Optional features now under development are floats, cargo hook, fibreglass tailboom shroud, doors and turbo-charging.
