Classic Aero-TV: THE Heavy-Lifting Helo - Kaman's K-Max at Heli-Expo 2017

From 2017: Kaman Revives The K-MAX Helicopter…

Kaman has revived the K-MAX helicopter, and delivered the first new production aircraft to a customer in April, 2017.

Terry Fogarty, Director of Business Development for K-MAX Helicopter Programs at Kaman, told ANN CEO and Editor in Chief Jim Campbell at HAI in Dallas, TX earlier this year that when you think about a helicopter as a tool, he is continually surprised by the number of different missions suggested by customers for that tool. Such uses include humanitarian missions, powerline missions, and other things that were always on the periphery before, but are now becoming more front-and-center.

Fogarty said the Kaman built the worlds first unmanned helicopter. After partnering with Lockheed Martin, the aircraft had a "very successful" deployment in Afghanistan, and the company has performed demonstrations for the Department of Interior for unmanned firefighting, and many potential customers in the humanitarian world are looking for a helicopter that can go places that are very austere, and "do the dull missions, like taking supplies, taking water, and taking food. The mission isn't that exciting, but for the people receiving that aid, it's a huge difference."

Fogarty said that following that initial delivery, the company would be delivering a new helicopter about every eight weeks.
