Kaman to Deliver K-Max to Helicopter Express


Kaman Aerospace recently announced that it will deliver 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 its order in May.


“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 a trusted leader 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 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 Federal Aviation Administration 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 (2,722 kg).


Commenting on the new partnership, Aston Martin Lagonda Vice President and Chief Creative Officer Marek Reichman said, “Applying our own automotive design principles in the aerospace world is a fascinating challenge and one that we are very much enjoying. I’m looking forward to the reveal in the New Year so we can show everyone what we have accomplished together.”


Airbus Corporate Helicopters is the global market leader in the private and business aviation (PBA) sector with more than 1,800 aircraft fielded in 130 countries and a market share in excess of 50%.


Frédéric Lemos, head of Airbus Corporate Helicopters, said, “This is a bold cooperation, which corresponds to our tradition of experimenting with new design approaches. The result is a unique creation of breathtaking design accomplishment and beauty.”


The first creation of the Aston Martin/Airbus Corporate Helicopters partnership will be revealed at Courchevel in the French Alps in January, 2020.
