The company plans to sell a family of helicopters in kit form, but they’re starting with the SVH-4 trainer, which is a unique product in the trainer market.
Traditionally students have to start out on computerized simulators and then move into an actual helicopter, but Cicare’s helicopter that flies on the ground offers a new, less expensive, and safer alternative.
The company says this new system will make it much safer to learn to fly a helicopter as well as being less expensive. Who wants to take up helicopter flying after watching this?
