Combining a technological breakthrough in
powerplant design with refinements to a highly successful, award
winning airframe, the new Exec 162F has elevated a tradition into a
revolution in helicopter performance.
The Exec 162F's powerplant is the most advanced
in the industry, utilizing the very latest, fully automated, digital
electronic control system known as "FADEC". Designed to incorporate
high performance with maximum reliability, maintenance on the Exec
is kept to a minimum. Fuel consumption is only 8 gallons per hour
and Avgas is not necessary, the Exec 162F works perfectly with 92
Octane. Long lifetime components with replacement costs typical of
those found in the amateur built category are reflected in the
Exec162F's incredibly low operating costs. Costs are a fraction
those of the nearest production craft.
The Exec 162F utilizes an asymmetrical airfoil
for improved autorotation characteristics and safety. An elastomeric
rotor hub eliminates a lot of moving parts, bringing considerable
simplicity to the rotor system.
