Welcome to Vertipedia!
What is Vertipedia?Vertipedia is a comprehensive online reference for vertical lift aircraft. Our goal is to provide high-quality information on aircraft design and configuration, key physical and performance characteristics, and rotors and powerplants to industry, academia and the public.
Much more complete, in-depth views, however, are available to AHS members. This includes dimensional and layout data, specific performance data, powerplant information, and data on lift and control devices such as main and tail rotors.

Featured AircraftOur latest featured aircraft for February is the Sikorsky S-67 Blackhawk .
The aircraft was designed as a low-cost tactical helicopter demonstrator, based around the rotors, engines, hydraulic/electrical systems, and drive train of the S-61/H-3 series aircraft. It was a "semi-compund" design in that it was equipped with a lifting wing to off-load the rotor in high speed flight, but did not feature any auxiliary propulsion systems.
The main wheels were fully retractable but the tail wheel was fixed.
