RotorWay is one of the great aviation stories, beginning in the mid-sixties and continuing today to offer one of the most time-tested kit built helicopters. The open-cabin single-seat Scorpion I came out in 1967, and in 1970, a two-cycle powerplant rated at 125 hp became available. In 1975, RotorWay developed its own four-cylinder engine to better meet the helicopter’s requirements for a two-person load and an empty-vehicle weight of less than 700 pounds. The Scorpion rotor system incorporates an elliptical hub plate designed to withstand stresses many times those encountered during operation. Its enclosed cabin is constructed of lightweight fiberglass.

In 1980, a whole new look evolved with the birth of the Exec, the grandfather of the current model, the Exec 162F. Helicopters from RotorWay International’s customers have won top EAA Awards almost every year since 1990. The company is now employee owned.
