Safari Helicopters

Safari Helicopter specializes in American-made, fully-customizable personal helicopters:

There was once a time when only the most accomplished people afford motor vehicles. Today, it seems like everyone has at least one car parked in the garage. Most families have two or more. Helicopters, however, are still outside the financial reach of the common man. Those who have built their empires, however, can enjoy the thrill of flight with their very own personal helicopters from Safari Helicopter.

The Canadian Home Rotors Safari Helicopter Company

The Safari Helicopter adventure started in the early 1960s when an aerospace engineer and his son designed a personal helicopter that experienced builders could put together at home. Over the decades, these helicopter plans passed from owner to owner. Canadian Home Rotors, Inc. used this as inspiration to reach even higher by designing a helicopter that offered the safety and convenience of modern technology.

Canadian Home Rotors started tinkering with its design in 1962. It didn’t make the chopper available until 1992, when it unveiled the Safari at a national convention in Oshkosh, Wisconsin. The company didn’t even need to advertise its products. Word of mouth was more than enough to flood it with orders.

Since then Canadian Home Rotors has tested and revised every piece of the Safari helicopter. Today, it has one of the world’s most successful personal helicopter designs. Successful men interested in exploring the world need this type of vehicle to push themselves beyond ordinary limits.

Making the Most of Every Adventure

The current version of the Safari helicopter includes several high-tech features that make it extremely safe and useful for experienced pilots. The helicopter comes with a 180 horsepower engine capable of carrying 650 pounds in addition to the craft’s weight. The 4130 Chromoly steel aircraft tubing frame, titanium shafts, and aluminum sheet metal cabin keep the weight as low as possible while protecting Safari’s essential parts from harsh weather.

Safari’s cabin offers a 70-degree view of your surroundings. This makes it perfect for exploring uncharted terrain. No matter where you go, you always have a clear, unobstructed view of your surroundings. This helps keep you and your passengers safe while thrilling you with the world’s natural beauty.

The cabin also keeps you comfortable. Safari can fly in temperatures as low as -35 degrees Fahrenheit and as high as 100 degrees Fahrenheit. While high temperatures won’t prevent you from enjoying your next adventure, sub-zero temperatures could prove hazardous. Safari has a cabin heater that keeps the helicopter’s interior comfortably warm even in freezing environments.
