Aviarazrabotchiki of the American company «Eagle R & D» made a decision on the design of small size sports aircraft in the first half 90-ies of the last century. The need for a light aircraft was due to a shortage of such aircraft in the field of civil aviation, while the demand for such helicopters with only increasing every year.
At the design stage Eagle Helicycle air ship model assumed that the design of the helicopter to be used light materials, which in turn will facilitate the design of the aircraft, will allow the use of less powerful and less costly power plant, and will provide high speed flight. To minimize the weight of the aircraft, aircraft manufacturers have come to believe that in the cockpit of the aircraft will be able to accommodate only one person, however, the lack of well-paid off the low cost of the helicopter and its relatively high flight performance.

Its first test flight helicopter Eagle Helicycle model has made in September 1997 years and due to the fact that the testing of the aircraft has been successfully completed, he went into mass production. Issue model helicopters Eagle Helicycle produced solely as self-assembly kits, allowing to minimize the cost of the aircraft.
Helicopter Eagle Helicycle has high maneuverability and can perform flights at high speeds with the implementation of sophisticated techniques of piloting. Due to lack of space on board, transportation in the cabin of an aircraft of this model of any goods is not possible, which also explains the rather low-powered propulsion.
Flying Eagle Helicycle model unit is equipped with a gas turbine aircraft engine brand Solar T62-T32, which is able to develop traction in 150 hp Using this power plant has allowed to minimize the cost of production of the aircraft, and at the same time provided the helicopter is very high-speed movement, component at its maximum value 180 km \ h. The maximum distance that the helicopter is capable of Eagle Helicycle air travel is 260 kilometers, taking into account the fact that the helicopter belongs to a class of sports aircraft is a very acceptable figure.
Over the entire period of production it was built more than 85 aircrafts of this model.
