An unusual helicopter is to be created in Russia

Aerodynamic tests of the VRT500 helicopter, a light multi-purpose machine, has begun in the country. It differs from other Russian helicopters in that it has just one engine, and that is atypical for domestic designs but a widespread practice in the West. Because of that, the weight, dimensions, and cost of the rotorcraft are reduced significantly. Batch production of the novelty is expected to begin in 2021, the Air Transport Review («Авиатранспортное обозрение») publication informs.
