The SKT Skyrider
The SKT Skyrider light helicopter is a design not only for standard aerial work, but a platform for optionally piloted and remotely piloted aviation operations. Designed from the outset as a pilot's helicopter, the Skyrider offers outstanding levels of safety, stable and predictable handling, and performance options to meet any operator requirements. A development programme is already under way to install a revolutionary hybrid power system for yet higher levels of safety, carbon reduction and lower costs.
The Skyrider is designed to fly, so inherent in the architecture is a minimal maintenance airframe and systems. Combined with state-of-the art manufacturing techniques, using best-in-class materials and build options, the Skyrider's affordability is measured at about a 30% lower purchase price and a cost per flight hour of about 50% of the current market leader.
SKT is head-quartered in Ambri Aerodrome, in the South of Switzerland. Over 500 hours of flight and ground testing has been conducted at Ambrì Airport, Ticino, Switzerland and Como, Italy.
The production facility is located Ambri Aerodrome,
Switzerland. Excepting the power plant, all parts,
mechanical, electrical and electronic are made by
SKT and a select set of strategic partners.
Final assembly and testing is made at Ambri controlled by an in-house quality system.
After sales support and maintenance is provided through an international resource network.
