Aircraft developers from the American company Eagle R&D decided to design a small sports aircraft in the first half of the 90s of the last century. The need to create a light aircraft was due to the lack of such aircraft in the field of civil aviation, while the demand for such helicopters only increased every year.

At the design stage of the Eagle Helicycle model aircraft, it was assumed that lightweight materials would be used in the design of the helicopter, which in turn would facilitate the design of the aircraft, enable the use of a less powerful and less expensive propulsion system and ensure a high flight speed. To minimize the weight of the aircraft, aircraft builders came to the conclusion that only one person could be accommodated in the cabin of the aircraft, however this disadvantage paid off well with the low cost of the helicopter and its sufficiently high flying-technical characteristics.

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.

The aircraft model Eagle Helicycle is equipped with one Solar T62-T32 gas turbine aircraft engine, which is capable of developing a thrust of 150 hp. The use of such a power plant made it possible to minimize the costs of aircraft production, and at the same time provided the helicopter with a very high speed of movement, which, at its maximum value, is 180 km / h. The maximum distance that the Eagle Helicycle is capable of flying is 260 kilometers, which, given the fact that the helicopter belongs to the class of sports aircraft, is a very acceptable indicator.

Over the entire period of production it was built more than 85 aircrafts of this model.
