Design and development[edit]

A three-seat prototype was first built in 2001, with its first flight planned for June 2002. The helicopter contains two 73.5 kW (98.6 hp) Rotax 912 ULS flat-four piston engines, pod-and-boom configuration, skid undercarriage, three-blade main rotor, and a two-blade tail rotor mounted on T-tail configuration. By May 2002, Aviaimpex had revealed plans for helicopter gunship and unmanned aerial vehicle versions. The Ukrainian Defence Ministry placed orders for 100 pilot training versions of this aircraft and the Ministry of the Interior ordered a number for patrol use. The Georgian government and the Moscow mayor's office also placed an order for this aircraft. A total of 400 "Angel"s have been ordered in the two-seat configuration.
