Kaman Aerosystems has received an order from Precision Lift for its K-Max helicopter, the company announced on 6 December.

This is the second aircraft purchased by Precision Lift in the last 12 months. The helicopter will join its fleet of firefighting assets.

K-Max is a single-engine, single-seat, rugged aircraft that features a counter-rotating rotor system and is optimised for external load operations and designed specifically for vertical reference flight. The aircraft can lift up to 6,000lbs.

David McCarty, president, Precision Lift, said: ‘The versatility and reliability of our first K-Max provided substantial value to our operations when combined with our existing fleet of Air Tractor AT-802 aircraft.

‘Adding a second K-Max will significantly expand our offering of cost effective firefighting assets with unique high density altitude performance for state agencies and the US Forest Service to combat fires.’
