Skywheels Rotor Blade Test Flights Completed! (Pilot Report), September 24, 2020.

 

Skywheels' performance, safety, and customer satisfaction are unequaled in the industry. We don't build the cheapest rotor blades, and that's for good reasons!

The Skywheels rotor system is being manufactured again following an 18-year production hiatus. The Skywheels name has a loyal pilot following with a performance and safety record dating back to 1984. Take confidence in flying Skywheels on your gyroplane rotorcraft. > More about Skywheels.

Skywheels is an engineered rotor system compromised of two rotor blades, a center section, essential tower height parts, and AN retention hardware. The high-inertia design favors performance, safety, predictability, and forgiveness. Skywheels is designed to exceed the requirements of Federal Aviation Regulation Part 27 (requirements for normal category rotorcraft).

The rotor system is manufactured from composite material following a time-tested and proven process. The rotor blade chord is 8-inches wide for all lengths and offers two different style tip ends. One style is a square tip and the other a swept tip. The color options include Air Command red, bright white, and custom colors to your preference (subject to availability). The center section is 10-inches wide and engineered with a fixed pitch.  It has a molded 12-inch deep pocket at each end for blade chord alignment and blade retention. The pocket is a ‘plug and play’ feature allowing for quick assembly and inline tracking every time.

Skywheels will arrive to you flight ready; however, some fine-tuning may be required under actual flight conditions.  An Owner’s Manual that includes technical guidance is provided for safe operations. > More on rotor blade selection and planning.

Flying Skywheels is like having power-steering in the sky.

(1) The 25-foot diameter set normally comes with a short (3-foot) center section. Experienced pilots have stated the 25-foot set "flies even smoother" with the long (5-foot) center section. Skywheels has not made any verification of this claim and therefore has no basis upon which to confirm or deny such a claim.

(2) All blade set lengths have an 8-inch (20.32 cm) wide chord.

(3) Standard colors include Air Command red and bright white.  Additionally, we offer Cub Cadet yellow and custom colors.

(4) The tip end of the rotor blade is offered in two different styles. One style is a square tip and the other a swept tip.

(5) The above price information does not include the costs of shipping crates, freight delivery, delivery insurance against damage, applicable sales tax, and, if required, import or VAT fees for international shipments.

(6) A deposit of $250 USD is required to start your custom Skywheels rotor system sales order.  The remainder is due prior to manufacturing or shipping the product, whichever is first in the sequence. We do maintain an on-hand inventory for immediate shipment of Air Command red color with square tip in common rotor diameter lengths.
