Hummingbird 260L Helicopter

In 1991 the helicopter kit build industry was revolutionized by the introduction of the Hummingbird 260L, the world’s first FAA certified helicopter to be sold in kit form. By utilizing the design from a FAA certified helicopter we are able to implement safety, reliability, and performance from years of proven flight time. The Hummingbird is a single engine, single three-bladed main rotor type helicopter, with a two blade tail rotor.
