Cicaré Helicópteros S.A. (originally Cicaré Aeronáutica S.A.) is an Argentine helicopter manufacturer founded by Augusto Cicaré in Buenos Aires in the 1970s to develop aircraft of his own design. A number of prototypes were constructed, including one under contract from the Argentine Air Force, but no great successes were achieved until the CH-7 light sporting helicopter in the 1990s. In March 2007 the first prototype of Cicaré CH-14 a light helicopter for the Argentine army was ready.

On March 18, 2010 they presented the CH-7B and CH-12[1] during the EAA Argentina Annual Meeting.[2]
