Heli-Austria currently operates 35 aircraft focused on emergency medical services, tourism, aerial construction and flight training. Delivery of the K-MAX is planned for December.

Adding the K-MAX to our fleet is an important step for new customer offerings and expanding our overall capabilities,” says CEO Roy Knaus.

This aircraft is the 13th firm order since the relaunch of production. “We are excited to welcome Heli-Austria, a new operator in the European market, to the K-MAX family,” says Kaman VP and GM air vehicles division Darlene Smith. “The K-MAX continues to deliver proven performance and provides a dependable solution for operators and end users.”
