THE H-43 BECAME A HIGHLY SUC- CESSFUL LINE OF HELICOPTERS KNOWN FOR THEIR EXTRAORDINARY ABILITY TO WORK AT ALTITUDE AND CAPABILI- TY TO HANDLE A VARIETY OF MISSIONS IN SOME OF THE MOST DEMANDING ARENAS THAT HELICOPTERS HAVE EVER BEEN OPERATED IN.


Kaman Helicopters that are still evident in models that are flying over 60 years later. With develop- ments such as the first turbine powered helicopter, first helicopter with all composite rotor blades and pioneering remotely piloted helicopters, his compa- ny earned a reputation as a technological front run- ner with a superb engineering and development team. The H-43 became a highly successful line of helicopters known for their extraordinary ability to work at altitude and capability to handle a variety of missions in some of the most demanding arenas that helicopters have ever been operated in. Charles Kaman’s fortitude combined with his innovation and remarkable business sense allowed him to leave a mark on the rotorcraft industry that few have equaled, making him a true Rotorcraft Pioneer. abcd
