Technology

The Cabri G2 uses only the latest technology, previously unknown in this class:

  • Main structure constructed entirely of carbon fiber composite, corrosion and fatigue-free,
  • Main rotor head fully articulated on elastomerics bearings,
  • Fenestron® tail rotor, maintenance-free, with high damage tolerance,
  • Advanced electronics, protected against electro-magnetic interference,
  • Electrical wiring harness compliant with the latest standards: Kapton® insulation, waterproof connectors, lightning protection.

The perfect helicopter for autorotation training

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.

Airframe crashworthiness

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.

  • Monocoque construction
  • Composite material
  • No calendar-limited components
  • No maintenance
  • Easily repairable
  • Lightning certified

High inertia rotor system

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.
