For several years, the Winner Company, located in Belgium, is putting its heart and soul in the concept and the development of a two seat, experimental helicopter with a teetering rotor system: available as ready-to-fly or as a homebuilt kit.

The Winner B250 has a type CNSK certification (France) equivalent to a "CDNR" type certification (restricted certificate of airworthiness). In other words, CNSK is a mixture of both "CS-VLR" and "CS-27".
In France, this certification imposes the take-off load not to exceed 700 kg, in the UK and Canada 750kg, and 1200kg maximum in other countries according to their national flight regulations. A private pilot license "PPLH" is required.
In France, when the helicopter is maintained by an approved organization or by an authorized person with appropriate means and experience, it allows the approved training of private pilots (PPLH) and professional pilots (CPLH). This usage is why this helicopter was designed mainly.
Other uses are possible if the country's regulations allow it. This includes, for example, lifting or transporting loads (max. 350 kg), pipeline monitoring work, electrical networks, borders, etc.
It can be delivered as a kit or ready to fly.
The Winner B250 is designed for two seats (driver + passenger). The B250 has a 3 blade rotor of type bearing-less design (laminated steel torsion bar) with a nominal speed of 523 rpm.
The Winner B250 is powered by a turbine of 250 hp restricted to 200 hp. Depending on its use in certain regions of the globe where altitude, temperatures or humidity are very high, the value of the power may be increased at the express request of the customer according to his wishes if the country's regulations authorize it.
The fuselage is made entirely of vinylester and fiberglass except for the tail boom of carbon fiber and epoxy.
The chassis is made of aeronautical steel type 25CD4S and heat treated to release the tensions at the welds.
The landing gear legs are made of titanium. Most of the machined parts are made of aviation-type 7075 aluminium.
The main rotor blades and the 2-blade anti-torque rotor (3,237 rpm) are made of carbon fiber and are not limited in time. Their leading edges are covered with an impact protection.
The main transmission is done by means of 6 V-belts while the anti-torque rotor is driven by a transmission shaft connected to the input of the main gearbox.
Like any helicopter, a freewheel is present between the turbine and the rest of the transmission.
The flight instrumentation is analog (variometer, anemometer, altimeter, compass). The turbine instrumentation is digital (EGT, Torquemeter, dual tachometer, fuel level, oil and fuel pressure).
The navigation lights and the landing light are standard.
The TS100 turbine from the PBS company is a small turboshaft composed of two modules: a gas generator and a free turbine (no need for clutch) with a reduction gearbox. This turbine is equipped with an autonomous oil system, an electric starter generator, a digital control unit, a fuel system and a low voltage ignition source.
