Mosquito Helicopter Training

In addition to the standard helicopter training programs, ROTOR F/X has some unique offerings you will not find at any other flight school.

Ultralight and Experimental Helicopter Flight Training is a program using aircraft such as the Mosquito Air or XEL, which includes 10 hours of concentrated dual “flight only” time. Although no pilot license is required for this category of aircraft, professional flight training is dictated by necessity and common sense, and minimum requirements are set by several manufacturers. Hours acquired in an ultralight or experimental aircraft can count towards future ratings.

International students welcome!

When your preference in a Part 103 ultralight vehicle requires more of a standard fuselage and cockpit, the Mosquito XEL will meet your needs. The integrated fuselage standard to all XE models forms a pleasing and aerodynamic shell with all the required instrumentation and comforts a recreational pilot would desire. The included safety floats provide an exemption to the standard 103 lb weight limit to keep this beautiful aircraft within the ultralight category. This helicopter can also be flown under FAA Part 103 – Ultralight Vehicles and does not require aircraft registration or pilot license.

If you have a rotorcraft rating or are planning on getting your license, the Mosquito XE is the place to start. Identical to the XEL but without the floats, and with an unrestricted fuel capacity, the XE will really take you places. Fly for over 2 hours, or 4 with optional extended tanks, at a comfortable cruising speed of 75 mph and a very economical fuel burn of only 4.5 gallons per hour.

Additional power is the prime feature of the Mosquito XE3 helicopter. Identical to the XE in all other features, the XE3 boasts a power increase of over 30% for higher engine performance, larger loads, or high-altitude performance. You’ll also experience a rated cruise speed increase to over 80 mph and a significant jump in climb rate. As with the XE, this helicopter requires FAA registration and a helicopter pilot rating.
