F-HELIX

A REVOLUTIONARY 1-6 SEATS 2 BLADES ELECTRIC HELICOPTER

Mr. Vinati bought the SILVERCRAFT aeronautical factory in 1990 and resumed the production of the Silvercraft SH-4, a light weight class two-bladed helicopter with a maximum take-off weight of 1900 lb and a 3 seats capacity (type certificate by FAA-USA and RAI-ITA).

F-Helix is the natural evolution of the Silvercraft SH-4.
We signed a research agreement with the Penn State Vertical Lift Research Center of Excellence (vlrcoe.psu.edu) to validate the F-Helix concept and optimize the performance.
Vinati s.r.l. came up with the F-Helix concept with 4 main objectives in mind:

  • 1) to create eVTOL that can autorotate
  • 2) to abate the initial cost by simplifying assembly and number of parts
  • 3) to improve the flight characteristics
  • 4) to reduce maintenance cost


  • F-Helix: a 1-6 seat two-bladed Fly-by-Wire electric helicopter with a maximum take-off weight of 1900 lbs with far less fewer moving parts.
