Aero-TV: Scion Helicopter’s Vixen SH-410

The Composite, Carbon Fiber Helicopter Kit

Aero-News Network correspondent Rex Alexander saw a new addition to the light helicopter market at the Scion Helicopters tent at AirVenture 2024 - and what he saw was pretty interesting.

Scion’s Vixen SH-410 is an all-composite, carbon fiber aircraft kit built to Part 27 standards. CEO and Founder Jim Sampson says the end result will give operators the best of small, lightweight GA helicopters and larger commercial aircraft: The safety of a larger certificated helo with the affordable acquisition and operating costs of a piston-equipped experimental.

That’s a tall order, but Scion’s futuristic monocoque construction looks like it’s up to the task. For now, Scion is still building their first airworthy unit, but customers are already on the books and eager to start building their own.
