In the most countries in the world the using of light helicopters and kit sets assembled by their owner for personal
use is allowed. That means you will not have any problem with using the helicopter AK1-3.
What about commercial using, in France, for example, AK1-3 is used for primary private pilot education.
If you are buying a helicopter for commercial use (for training, providing paid guide tours or monitoring service),
you should know that each country may have its own aviation rules,helicopter's registration and exploitation requirements.
Please, contact a local aviational department and provide them information about AK1-3 and clarify the whole registration
and exploitation procedures of the AK1-3 helicopter.
Received type certificate in 2006 (ТП-0008)
The helicopter accomplished a full test cycle and authorized for private and commercial flights in Ukraine
and other countries, where this certificate is valid.
Maximum flight time
Maximum climb speed
Agricultural / farming
For example, in Africa our helicopters are used for pilot and police trainings, but mostly AK1-3 were bought for private flights.
Even there is one helicopter in possession of the family of the Abu-Dhabi Sheikh.
AK1-3 is the most agile in its class
Maneuverability and stability are contradictable characteristics to each other, but we have succeeded
to design a helicopter which possesses these two qualities at the same time.
It flies excellently in the cold and heat
According to the certificate from −18˚С to + 35˚С, and in fact from −35˚С to + 48˚С
The first 4 helicopters were sold to South Africa. During service, it became clear that for hot climate conditions and intensive
loads we must modify design and improve the helicopter's characteristics. We developed the modification program, changed some elements
of construction, conducted tests.
During AK1-3 Test Flights particular attention was given to the hovering mode test. In this mode there is no forced draught of airflow and
from this arises the maximum engine working load.
Now as a result of 2 years work we have a helicopter which has proved itself even in harsh conditions such in Africa where there is a
lot of dust and high temperatures. And today there are already 20 our helicopters in Africa.
Where can you see it in real life?
Countries where already sold AK1-3
For this you need to visit a factory/plant in Ukraine or in one of ours regional centers which are located
in China, Poland, France and Africa. Also, we can try to arrange a meeting with one of our client who lives
closest to you to show you a helicopter in real life.
