Mosquito Air NO PILOTS LICENSE REQUIRED TO FLY THIS HELICOPTER IN USA**
For simplicity and pure "out there' flying experience consider the Mosquito Air. This is as basic and thrilling as it gets, cruising over the landscape below with little to obstruct your view or the exhilaration of the wind rushing past. This pure fun ship can be flown under FAA Part 103 ultralight rules and does not require aircraft registration or pilot license*. The Mosquito Air is available ReadyBuilt©, as a full kit or can be purchased in sub groups to meet your time and budget availability. A deposit as low as $3000 for the first sub-group or $6000 for the full kit can get you on your way to this unique experience like no other. Videos
Mosquito XEL NO PILOTS LICENSE REQUIRED TO FLY THIS HELICOPTER IN USA**
When your preference in a Part 103 ultralight requires more of a standard fuselage and cockpit then the XEL will meet your needs. The integrated fuselage standard to all XE models forms a most pleasing and aerodynamic shell with all the required instrumentation and comforts a recreational pilot might want. The included safety floats provide an exemption to the standard 103 weight limit to keep this beautiful ship within the ultralight category. This helicopter can also be flown under FAA Part 103 ultralight rules and does not require aircraft registration or pilot license*. The Mosquito XEL is available ReadyBuilt©, as a full kit or can be purchased in sub groups. A deposit as low as $5,000 for the first sub-group or $10,000 for the entire kit will get you an immediate spot on the production line. Videos
Mosquito XE HELICOPTER OR FIXED WING PILOTS LICENSE REQUIRED TO FLY THIS HELICOPTER IN USA**
If you have a rotorcraft rating or are planning on getting your license the 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 even 4 with optional extended tanks, at a comfortable cruise of 75 mph and a very economical fuel burn of only 4.5 gallons per hour. This helicopter requires FAA registration and a pilot rating with its enhanced capabilities. The Mosquito XE is available ReadyBuilt©, as a full kit or can also be purchased in sub groups. A deposit of $5,000 will secure your position for the first sub-group or $10,000 for the entire kit. Videos
Mosquito XE3 HELICOPTER OR FIXED WING PILOTS LICENSE REQUIRED TO FLY THIS HELICOPTER IN USA**
Additional power is the prime feature of the XE3 helicopter. Identical to the XE in all other features, the XE3 boasts a power increase of over 30% for higher performance, a larger load or high altitude performance. You'll also experience a rated cruise speed increase to over 80 mph and a significant jump in rate of climb capability. As with the XE this helicopter requires FAA registration and a pilot rating. The Mosquito XE3 is available ReadyBuilt©, as a full kit or can be purchased in sub groups. A $5,000 deposit enables a production position for the first sub-group or $10,000 for the entire kit. Videos
Mosquito XET Turbine HELICOPTER OR FIXED WING PILOTS LICENSE REQUIRED TO FLY THIS HELICOPTER IN USA **
This is the ultimate experience in performance, technology and pure "wow" factor. With a top speed over 100 mph and rated climb rate of 1200 feet per minute this performer will satisfy the most demanding pilot and turn heads and gather crowds wherever you travel. There is nothing like the pure power and sound of the turbine propelling your helicopter into performance parameters all others will envy. The Mosquito XET is also available ReadyBuilt© or as a full kit and can be purchased in sub groups. A $5,000 deposit will secure group one module of the kit or $10,000 deposit will purchase your position for the entire kit. The turbine engine is additional on this ship and engine cost typically ranges from $5000 - $10000 depending on configuration and options. Videos

* As with any aircraft, competent practices, operation and training should be observed at all times. Aircraft can be extremely dangerous should not be taken lightly and no careless or reckless behavior should be tolerated or allowed at any time. Improper maintenance or operation can result in serious injury or even death. These helicopters should never be operated without sufficient training and instruction and under no circumstances should one attempt to self teach themselves how to fly these aircraft. All prices quoted include a $2000 discount which shall only be applied if the buyer can provide verifiable documentation that they have received at least 10 hours of professional flight instruction in helicopters.
** Although their is no regulatory requirement to hold any type of pilot license at all to fly the Mosquito AIR or XEL, or that you can fly the XE, XE3 or XET experimental helicopters with just a fixed wing private rating or higher, training is still necessary to teach you the flight skills to pilot your Mosquito. An accelerated 10 hour class is available which can usually be accomplished in 3-4 days at which point you should have very basic competency in hovering, pedal turns, hover taxi, quick stops, pick ups and set downs which should provide you sufficient skills to return home and practice these maneuvers for many more hours. For new pilots this time counts towards your rotorcraft rating and for fixed wing pilots this time does count towards your rotorcraft add on rating. This is an absolute minimum, additional time is highly recommended.Mosquito Specifications, Performance and Pricing: ORDER NOW! - $2000 PRICE INCREASE ON ALL MOSQUITO HELICOPTERS APRIL 2011

A note on pricing and purchasing:
ROTOR F/X is pleased to announce a one of a kind flight training package specifically for Mosquito helicopter builders and owners. As you are aware you need professional training with an instructor to learn helicopter flight and also to take advantage of the $2000 training discount on any of the Mosquito helicopters. We have designed a modified version of our private pilot helicopter course specifically for your requirements.
For ultralight owners we have a 10 hour package that is concentrated on your main focus of receiving basic flight training and becoming a safe and competent pilot in your ultralight. You may of course take more than 10 hours and even continue on towards your private certification at any time. You will receive and log 10 hours dual time in our Schweizer with a professional instructor which you can use for your discount and return home with a solid training foundation in place.
For experimental class owners we offer our private training course with an instructor who has many hours logged in experimental helicopters. Although necessarily similar to normal private rating training that we provide, this course is focused with extra attention on the specific and unique requirements for setting up, maintaining and flying an experimental class helicopter. Regular FAA private training requirements apply.
Training at Van Nuys is a unique experience. Helicopter traffic is so prevalent we have our own tower frequency at 119.0 and we house operations for dozens of helicopters including news, fire, police, sheriff, highway patrol, fire fighting, training, movies, charter, and corporate. You will see almost every variety of helicopter from light trainer to the giant Ericsson Skycrane. Experience in this environment will prepare you for anything.
