RotorWay A600 Talon
Hillberg Turbine Exec
The RotorWay Exec is a family of American two-bladed, skid-equipped, two-seat kit helicopters, manufactured by RotorWay International of Chandler, Arizona and supplied in kit form for amateur-construction.
Design and development
The Exec 162F is the latest in the Exec series of helicopters manufactured by RotorWay International.
The RotorWay Scorpion design was updated with an aluminum tail and full fiberglass cockpit enclosure to become the Exec. The Exec 90 was developed in the early 1990s, it was, at the time, the only piston-powered helicopter to utilize an asymmetrical airfoil for improved autorotation characteristics and safety.
In 1994, a fuel injection system with electronic ignition, and FADEC was added to the Exec 90, producing the Exec 162F.
Unlike most U.S.-designed helicopters, the main rotor on the Exec 162F rotates clock-wise, as seen from above.

- FADEC improved model.
- AvioTecnica ES-101 Raven
- In 1996 AvioTecnica of Italy marketed the Exec as the ES-101 Exec with a turbine engine instead of the piston engine. In 2004 it produced an improved variant it named the Aviotechnica ES-101 Raven powered by a modified Solar T-62-A turboshaft. Other improvements include carbon-fibre rotor blades, a two-piece windscreen and later models have a digital cockpit.
- Alpi Syton AH 130
- The Raven design was taken over by Alpi Aviation in late 2008 and the aircraft further developed into the Alpi Syton AH 130.
- Hillberg Turbine Exec
- A turbine conversion using the Solar T-62 auxiliary power unit (APU) made by Hillberg Helicopters of Fountain Valley, California in the 1990s.
