The Hughes 300 – or Schweizer 300 and Hughes 269 – is the perfect helicopter for flight training, trial flights and for passenger flights up to 2 passengers.
It is a very simple constructed helicopter and easy to control with good-natured handling characteristics.
It has very low operational costs per hour and therefor is ideally used for film and photo flights.
We use this helicopter for night operations too!
