Military training platform
The Cabri G2 uses only the latest technology, previously unknown in this class:
The Cabri G2 main rotor was designed with training as a priority, to allow safe and reliable autorotation practice.
The composite rotor blades have very high inertia. They provide autorotation performance which exceeds the minimum US Army requirement by 50%, and is twice that of some popular training helicopters.
In order to assist the pilot in autorotation, the rotor & engine tachometer graphics were designed by consultation with experienced instructors.
The Cabri G2 is the first piston-engine helicopter to be designed and certified in Europe. It is the first piston-engine helicopter initially certified by EASA. The certification is by far the most stringent ever achieved in this category.
With its semi-articulated, three-bladed rotor, using innovative technologies, the Cabri G2 offers a unique combination of maneuverability and stability.
Flight tested and certified in conditions far exceeding those of existing piston engines helicopters, the Cabri G2 can be flown safely in a wide flight envelope, previously reserved to the most advanced turbine helicopters including strong winds and turbulence.
