Kaman To Deliver K-MAX To Helicopter Express In 2019

Order Placed In May For December Delivery

Kaman Aerospace has announced the pending delivery of a new K-MAX medium-to-heavy lift helicopter to Helicopter Express of Chamblee, Georgia. Helicopter Express currently operates 24 aircraft providing dedicated services in heavy lifting, utility construction, firefighting and disaster relief. Helicopter Express placed their order in May and will take delivery of their new K-MAX in December of 2019.

“Helicopter Express started in 1995 with the vision of building a versatile helicopter company that offers a broad range of services to the southeast and has continued to evolve and become trusted leaders in the industry. Expanding our fleet with a third K-MAX is an important step to tackle our client’s ever-changing needs,” stated Scott Runyan, Founder and President/CEO of Helicopter Express.

“Helicopter Express is a highly respected operator and we appreciate the confidence they have placed in Kaman and the capabilities of the K-MAX. This Helicopter Express aircraft brings anticipated deliveries in the fourth quarter to three, for a total of four aircraft deliveries in 2019. We are thrilled that the K-MAX continues to be the choice for external lift applications that require the need for precise, efficient and cost-effective operations,” stated Darlene Smith, VP & GM, Kaman Air Vehicles Division.

Development of the K-MAX was led by Kaman founder and former CEO, aviation pioneer Charlie H. Kaman, and received FAA certification in 1994. The single-engine, single-seat K-MAX is a rugged low-maintenance aircraft that features a counter-rotating rotor system and is optimized for external load operations and designed specifically for vertical reference flight. The aircraft can lift up to 6,000 pounds.
