K-MAX helicopters are the industries best choice for repetitive precision external load operations in its weight class. A single engine, single transmission, and servo-flap controlled counter-rotating rotor system are some of the key factors in what make this unique machine capable of lifting more than its own empty weight. The obvious choice for aerial construction jobs and fire support. Cost effective, safe, reliable, and built to perform.
