First flight of AVIC’s AC312E helicopter in Harbin.

AVIC HAIG's AC312E takes to the skies

On July 27th, the AC312E, a helicopter developed by the Aviation Industry Corporation of China (AVIC), successfully completed its maiden flight in Harbin, Heilongjiang Province. Based on the techniques from the civilian helicopter AC312A, as well as both domestic and foreign market demands, AVIC HAIG's AC312E is a light twin-engine helicopter. Its high-power, yet fuel efficient engine, and advanced comprehensive avionic system, are optimized for “hot & high” conditions, as well as plains, guaranteeing a higher level of security, dependability, and comfort, as well as lower maintenance and operation costs.

The maximum takeoff weight is 4,250kg, plus 9 passengers or 600kg in cargo, which gives the AC312E significant advantages in its class in delivering ergonomic performance and minimizing operation costs. It can be modified according to customers' specific needs and used in various operations, such as medical assistance, general transportation, research and rescue, police operation, passenger transportation, and VIP services.
