Glass Cockpit

characteristics_01_cockpit_lake

Innovative, ergonomic and intuitive man-machine interface with a modular Glass Cockpit designed to enhance safety and situational awareness, integrating the most advanced technology in aviation including advanced flight systems that have been proven in the business-jet industry. Enabling the pilots to focus on the flight and the essentials of safety, benefiting from the natural layout of control elements, switches and adjustable seats.

The avionics suite provides all-weather operations capability, including a full digital NVG compatible cockpit with large area displays and enhanced graphics. Complying with satellite-based navigation, communication and surveillance requirements that will maximize a 24 hour operation of the helicopter.

Bearing-free Rotor System

characteristics_02_rotor

Superior manoeuvrability with an advanced bearing-free rotor system with 5-blades in full composite with the advantages of a fail-safe design and corrosion free, all of which will bring reduced maintenance requirements, low life cycle costs, low vibration levels and the highest degree of reliability and safety with absence of risk of mast bumping.

Composite Cell

characteristics_03_carbon_hangar
A lightweight cell constructed of composite materials with high crash resistance (a technology utilized in the formula 1 industry), excellent aerodynamics and the high ceiling optimized cabin configuration, unsurpassed, with regards to available space, ease of loading, in flight visibility and unrivalled comfort.

Modern Turbine

characteristics_04_modern-engine

A modern turbine with excellent fuel consumption, no hard TBO (Time Between Overhaul) and a modern FADEC (Full Authority Digital Engine Control), reduces pilot workload especially during startup and leads to excellent hot and high performance.

The new generation advanced dual channel FADEC with a manual backup provision will not only secure the flying procedures, it will facilitate engine maintenance, planning and troubleshooting.

With the industry leading power to weight ratio, the engine will deliver high performance with maximum efficiency and lowered emissions. Comprising Single Crystal Turbine Blades, On-condition maintenance and Effusion Cooled Combustor.

The HTS900-2 engine incorporates next generation technology developed by Honeywell including a dual Centrifugal Compressor, bringing increased power output, reducing engine fuel consumption and providing for engine growth with the same compressor architecture.

Honeywell offers a wide scope of helicopter support plans to ensure long-term direct maintenance cost control programs.

Shrouded tail rotor

characteristics_05_tail

SKYe SH09 is fitted with a shrouded tail rotor resulting in reduced noise emission levels, low maintenance layout, high safety level as the risk of contact with obstructions or bodily harm is greatly reduced. Maestro has been designed to orchestrate a silent symphony and preserve your environment of operations.

In terms of flight characteristics, the shrouded tail rotor will circumvent the anti-torque thrust which is applied during flight and will offer high damage tolerance.
