Kaman Aerosystems has received orders for two K-Max helicopters from two new customers, the company announced on 28 November.           

Mountain Blade Runner Helicopters of Montrose, Colorado, and St Louis Helicopter of Sellersburg, Indiana, are Kaman’s two latest customers, both of which will take delivery in the coming months.

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

Mountain Blade Runner Helicopters will use its K-Max for high-altitude external lift operations and forest firefighting missions. St Louis Helicopter will use its helicopter for agricultural seeding and fertilising, as well as firefighting.

St Louis Helicopter will finance its aircraft through a leasing arrangement with Rainier Heli International.
