Composite Integration and Hill Helicopters have joined hands to manufacture the disruptive, ground-up new helicopter, the HX50. The five-seat, turbine-powered, 500-horsepower rotorcraft is the world’s first truly private, luxury helicopter that has been designed to deliver a whole new experience in safety, performance, adventure, comfort, and elegance.

The HX50 is currently in the advanced design phase, with three prototypes scheduled to begin flight testing in 2022. The first deliveries are anticipated to take place in 2023.

The helicopter was recently unveiled by Hill Helicopters. Designed by a team of highly skilled engineers led by aeronautics engineer Dr. Jason Hill, the HX50 is a fusion of refined performance and artistic elegance. Its composite structure and rotor system, optimised engine, reimagined avionics, and elevated interior design together make the HX50 an exquisite, high tech and high-performance personal aircraft.

“The helicopter industry has long awaited an Elon Musk-style disruption that redefines the modern helicopter. The wait is over,” says Hill, founder and CEO of Hill Helicopters. “The only way to create something that is truly ground-breaking is to design from the ground up, giving equal focus to aerospace design, performance, and safety as well as to the artistic and experiential aspects, including comfort, ergonomics, intuitive technology, and luxury. The HX50 brings all of this together to deliver a truly unique aircraft and experience.”

Composite Integration is using its extensive experience in closed-mould and infusion process technology to design and manufacture tooling and first off components for the high-performance composite fuselage. Founded in 2002, Composite Integration has a proven track record of delivering new technologies, processes and production solutions into a wide variety of global sectors including aerospace, renewable energy, marine and automotive.
