The Aeros Helicopter
Construction Plans

For the helicopter enthusiast interested in a homebuilt helicopter designed to high standards: the Aeros is one of the most superbly engineered single-place helicopters you'll find. The plans manual offers page after page of fully detailed construction prints, photos and assembly instructions to guide the builder.

This single-seat helicopter can be built in a well-equipped home shop. It features a bolt-together main frame and a standard helicopter control system: full collective with a twist-grip throttle, full cyclic and foot-operated tailrotor pedals. For low-cost and reliability, the drivetrain utiliizes a converted VW car engine and a primary belt drive that leads to a geared transmission with VW gears. The belt-driven tailrotor is high-mounted to minimize the rolling moment caused by tailrotor thrust. A number of weight-saving features have gone into the Aeros, including a simple, but attractive monocoque tailboom. The Aeros is licensed as an Experimental Aircraft.
