Kaman K-MAX Commences Operations in China

Kaman Aerosystems, a division of the aerospace segment of Kaman Corporation (NYSE:KAMN), announced today at HAI Heli-Expo that the K-MAX® helicopter has been certified by the Civil Aviation Administration of China (CAAC) and operator Guangdong Juxiang General Aviation Co. Ltd, based in the Guangdong Province, has commenced operations with their K-MAX® aircraft.

Kaman AVMRO General Manager Drake Klotzman stated, “China continues to expand its infrastructure investment in remote areas and the low operating costs and fuel efficiency of the K-MAX® and its unmatched performance at high altitudes make the aircraft an ideal solution to support these investments. In addition, the K-MAX® excels in firefighting and construction missions. We believe there remains significant demand across China and other emerging markets to support future production and deliveries of K-MAX® aircraft to additional customers around the world.”

Development of the K-MAX® was led by Kaman founder and former CEO, aviation pioneer Charles H. Kaman, and received Federal Aviation Administration certification in 1994. The single-engine, single-seat K-MAX® is a rugged low-maintenance aircraft that features a counter-rotating rotor system and is optimized for external load operations and designed specifically for vertical reference flight. The aircraft can lift up to 6,000 pounds (2,722 kg).
