Aiming to increase the capabilities for helicopters to be faster and more efficient than ever, the Airbus Racer Helicopter has been created by the aviation brand to deliver exceptional speed and comfort. Featuring a top-mounted rotor along with two lateral pusher rotors, the helicopter is capable of reaching a cruising speed of 250mph, which is quite impressive for an airborne vehicle of this variety.

The Airbus Racer Helicopter is crafted with a hybrid metallic-composite airframe that reduces the overall weight of the vehicle to make lift and drive far faster than on other helicopters. The design of the helicopter has been unveiled by the brand with a demonstration model coming to production by 2019 with flights planned to start taking place in 2020.
