The UH-12E is a three place helicopter manufactured by the Hiller Aircraft Corporation. It is powered by a Lycoming six-cylinder piston engine that develops 305 horsepower.
The fuel capacity is 46 gallons, which provides a range of about 150 miles and an endurance of approximately 2 hours and forty-five minutes.
With full fuel the helicopter has a payload capacity of 700lbs internally and 1,000lbs on the cargo hook. We expect to have our certification for external load carrying capability soon.
The Hiller is a simple, proven design that is ideally suited for utility work. It fits a niche between the less capable very light piston market and the expensive turbine class helicopters.
