    Hi, what turbine engine do you have in this?
    And can you give a rough price for it?

    what kind of fuel does it consume? can you just land on top of Exxon mobile and yell out, “hey can you fill er up with super unleaded? And make it an extra long hose, cause im up here.”

    Depends on the proportions of your height between legs and torso. There is just over 37″ from the seat to the interior top of the cabin so if your torso is within these bounds and the balance of your length is in the legs you’ll fit.

    How tall is too tall for a helicopter this size? I’m interested in one, but I’m 6’4..

  12. stuartsbushcraftblog on November 2nd, 2010 12:17 pm

    @ROTORFX Okay thanks

  13. ROTORFX on November 2nd, 2010 1:02 pm

    You could fit it with a hook for practice and training but the payload capability does not allow for any practical load that would be useful in real situation

  14. ROTORFX on November 2nd, 2010 1:27 pm

    Regulations and flight categories vary from country to country and you’ll have to check with the aviation authority in the country you are considering. There are Mosquito helicopters already in the UK, France, Italy as well as several eastern EU countries.

    Could this helicopter be fitted out with a cargo hook to carry say a bambi bucket for firefighting?

  16. Dubconferencedotorg on November 2nd, 2010 2:22 pm

    I think it should be possible pushing the costs below 5000US$ .. considering the TAO effect

  17. Dubconferencedotorg on November 2nd, 2010 2:29 pm

    Can it be flight with Ultralight in EU ?

    how much do one of these cost?

  21. ROTORFX on November 2nd, 2010 4:45 pm

    Part 103 is the section in the USA FARs (aviation regulations) that refer to ultralight aircraft ( see the link to the 103 regs on the Mosquito Helicopter page on our site
    If you are anywhere within the USA then “103” regs apply & yes you can fly either of the Mosquito ultralight models. Of course you will need training, see our site for ultralight training classes on the helicopter flight training page

    @ROTORFX Okay so what if I was living in MO. You see my family is in Canada but I’m living in MO now going to school what would I have to go through in order to fly one of your helicopters. Also what do you mean by part 103?

  23. ROTORFX on November 2nd, 2010 6:26 pm

    Yes, you will need a license to fly any of the Mosquito helicopters in Canada. Unfortunately they do not have a comparable Part 103 Ultralight category which allows you to fly either the Mosquito AIR or Mosquito XEL license free in the USA.

  24. adferrell7 on November 2nd, 2010 6:52 pm

    I live in Canada and I was wondering would I need a pilot license to fly Mosquito XET Turbine? And I noticed that there are other mosquito’s that don’t have the turbine. Do I need a pilot license for one of those?

  25. sierrarotorcraftclub on November 2nd, 2010 7:07 pm

    The Mosquito helicopter is a net little sporty helicopter, The cost to own this ship is about what I paid for my Rotorway Exec in 1989. If I didn’t all ready have a helicopter, I surely would be looking at the Mosquito.
