The helicopter is able to cover a distance of 1000 km with one refueling, flight speed 200 – 220 km per hour. The capacity of the helicopter is 5 people and 500 kg of cargo. Today such a helicopter is already working in the Transcarpathian region.

“10 years ago, I said that one day our helicopter will be created and here we have a helicopter, which consists of 85% of Ukrainian parts and components. During this time, we have mastered the engines, gearbox, composite blades, 40% composite fuselage, “said Boguslaev.
