Roll-out of first Korean prototype

Three years after the launch of the Korean Helicopter Program in 2006, Korean Aerospace Industries (KAI) and Eurocopter are proud to witness the on-time roll-out of the first Korean Utility Helicopter (KUH) prototype in the presence of the President of the Republic of Korea, Lee Myung-bak. This outstanding achievement is the result of an effort started in June 2006, for which every major milestone has been accomplished on time: preliminary design review, critical design review and dynamic test vehicle’s flight.

The maiden flight of this prototype is planned for the early months of 2010 and a serial production will start for 245 helicopters for the Republic of Korea Army (ROKA). Scheduled to be deployed in 2012, the Korean Utility Helicopter (KUH) is a military transport helicopter in the eight metric ton class destined to replace existing utility helicopters in the South Korean Army fleet.

As a system integrator of the KUH, KAI states: “It is significant to have the KUH rolled out as scheduled because it means our customer will have this advanced helicopter as initially planned. This KUH will be a leading helicopter in the near future, which adapts state-of-the-art technologies to enhance the survivability and the mission capability as a multi-mission helicopter and it will satisfy the worldwide needs chasing upgraded efficiency in various operations with these advantages.”
