    We are the first to try the new helicopter kit by Titan. We saw the need for a Hummingbird in kit form that is affordable and safe. We have found this to be a proven four passenger helicopter kit with outstanding payload, long endurance, and premium comfort.

    In 1991, the helicopter kit industry was revolutionized by the introduction of the Hummingbird 260L: the world’s first four-passenger FAA certified helicopter turned into a kit. By utilizing the design from a FAA certified helicopter, we were able to implement safety, reliability, and performance from years of proven flight time. By offering the Hummingbird in kit form, you finally have an affordable, real helicopter.

    The HUMMINGBIRD Helicopter Features:

    • Superior Engineering.
    • Designed to strict FAA standards.
    • Ample Room for Four Passengers and More.
    • Fly four people comfortably or two people, 375 miles, with 220 lbs. of camping gear.
    • Proven Fuel Injected Titan Aircraft Engine.
    • 265 horsepower, fuel injected, and air cooled helicopter power plant.


    Top Quality Features
    The Hummingbird has features found on helicopters costing many times more including landing gear with wheels for taxiing, smooth three blade rotor system, automatic rotor system clutch, and rotorbrake.
