Helicopter AK 1-3 can be used for the decision of a wide range of problems:
* Monitoring of territories and objects: petro-gas pipelines, electric lines,
* Conducting of search and resque operations.
* Geological investigation, district air photography.
* Training to the technician of piloting and training of flight staff.
* Performance of aviation-chemical works.
* Business and pleasure flights.
* Participation in competitions of aviation kinds of sports
AK 1-3 was developed for long term of exploitation with the account
of last achievements in helicopter-building. Great volume of theoretical
and experimental researches during helicopter creation has been executed
thanks to close cooperation of the developer with Aircraft Institute
by Zhukovsky, Enterprise"Ivchenko-Progress", Aircraft plant of O.K.Antonov and other scientific organizations.
Helicopter AK 1-3 is constructed according to classical one-screw scheme with
the steering screw and it consists of a tubular frame on which the
cabin made of composit materials, power-plant reduction gear of steering
screw and a flat tail beam with empennage are mounted.
helicopter cabin provides free placing of two members of crew.
The width of a cabin at level of shoulders makes 1200 mm, for comparison
- helicopter R-22 - only1055 mm.
big area of glazing provides the crew with good review in all directions.
Seats of pilots arenot regulated, have waist and shoulder seat
belts. The Piloting-navigating equipment of the helicopter allows
to carry out flights in simple meteoconditions in the day-time,
by rules of visual flights. At will of the customer the system of satellite navigation GPS and system
of onboard registration of parameters of flight can be established
on helicopter AK 1-3.
The bearing screw is three-bladed with elastic fastening of blades.
The blades are made of composit materials, have on radius nonline twisting
and a variable relative thickness of a profile that has allowed to
improve considerably piloting and dynamic characteristics of the helicopter.
The steering screw is two-bladed with one general horizontal hinge. Blades
of the steering screw are made of composit materials.
Application of composit materials and unique technology at
manufacturing of blades has allowed to increase considerably their reliability
and a resource.
By helicopter AK 1-3 reciprocating engine of liquid cooling
EJ-25 «Subaru», working on automobile gasoline with octane number 95
and completed under given construction is installed (set).
Capacity from the engine through a belt drive and outrun muff is transferred
to a power shaft of the main reduction gear. A control system is mechanical.
A control run in channels of the general and cyclic step is rigid, in
the travelling channel is mixed.
The helicopter is equipped with a heating system and ventilation of cabin with
blowing of glazing.
air АК 1-3 possesses excellent controllability, and by estimations of
experts does not concede to the best foreign analogues. Professional
- helicopter pilots including foreign, making the test - flights
on АК 1-3 have given high appreciation to its flight qualities. The
of "Design Bureau Aerocopter" - Polituchyy Igor Vasilevich has acquainted Sikorskys S.I.with helicopter AK
1-3 (see the photo), who also - has noted the big perspectivity of
the Poltava machine in the world market.
Dual management gives possibility to make initial training of pilots, or to
support the flight validity of the staff with small operational expenses.
Helicopter AK 1-3 is approved and recommended by state aviation service
of Ukraine as the helicopter of initial training for Kremenchug flight
speed of decrease in an autorotation mode, reaches 8 m/s, that gives
possibility in emergencies to land the helicopter safely (using "blasting" reception) with the switched off engine.
By keeping helicopter in the limited closed space (garage, boxing) and transportation
- possibility to remove and establish the blade is provided. This procedure
is simple, also takes little.
If necessary installation of the additional equipment (a projector, the container
for cargo) on the helicopter is possible.
Coloring of helicopter AK 1-3 can be made under sketches of the customer.
Base color is black (without additional payment). Complementary colors, except
metallic, are accessible for additional payment at a rate of 1000 USD.
Metallic - 2000 USD. Little-used color schemes are accessible for the
