About Us

The World's #1 Two Seat Helicopter Company

The Phoenix A600 Turbo is the world’s most affordable and capable two-seat helicopter. With a cruise speed of 95mph, a range of 170 miles (or 320 miles with the extended range tank,) and a 655lb payload, the new A600 Turbo is the perfect helicopter for both new and experienced pilots.

The 180hp turbo engine is more than enough power to pick up two heavy men with full fuel. Rotor X Aircraft offers transition training and free technical support, but we also have plenty of other resources such as third-party builder assist programs and access to CFI’s all over the country to help you get your helicopter rating.

Honoring our dear friends Mark Peterson and Tom Volz

We’re thankful for all the years of wonderful memories and all the knowledge and passion that Mark and Tom have brought to the community.

It is truly an honor to have been a part of their lives and it is our promise to continue their story and love for aviation.

Our hearts and prayers go out to the Peterson and Volz families.
