Helicopter NADC NA-542. Specifications. A photo.
NADC NA-542 - Czech light multi-purpose helicopter, developed in 2000-ies of the company «NA Design Company Inc.».
Designing an aircraft model NADC NA-542 Czech aircraft manufacturers began in the early 2000-ies. As a fundamental principle, aviarazrabotchiki used the previous aircraft, in particular, we are talking about a model NADC NA-40 Bongo and its modifications. However, the original is preserved only the overall design of the aircraft at the time, as the design and aircraft performance indicators helicopter NADC NA-542 greatly improved, which provided the aircraft and more popular.
The cockpit of the helicopterNADC NA-542
Despite the increase in the size of the aircraft models NADC NA-542, the helicopter still has good maneuverability and high speed flight, which is due mainly to the improved aerodynamic shape of the aircraft, which greatly reduced drag during flight.
Conducted in 2000-years of flight tests of the model we have been very successful - the helicopter was not the only high-speed and multi-purpose, as it was assumed the original design, but also very reliable, thanks to which, the aircraft was sent to the serial production, which continues to be and today, that speaks of a clear prospect of helicopters of this model.
Significant changes undergone cabin of an aircraft, in particular, the Czech aircraft manufacturers have expanded it, allowing in turn to carry on board until 5 people, including one pilot and four passengers, so the project was also very strong support in the commercial air transport sector. Despite the fact that the cabin of the helicopter appreciably increased, the aircraft may still not be used for transportation of heavy loads, due mainly to the inability to quickly remove the passenger seat is located in the rear of the aircraft, however, this factor is practically impact on the needs of potential customers.
Driving a helicopterNADC NA-542
Helicopter NADC NA-542 is equipped with two gas-turbine aircraft engines of the brand G-230TS-B1B, each of which is capable of traction in 230 hp, with a relatively light construction of the aircraft, the helicopter provides the ability to accelerate to cruising speed flight 230 km \ h. at overcoming distances at distances of 750 kilometers.
On the basis of the model helicopter NADC NA-542 created also an upgraded version of the aircraft - NADC NA-542CTS, wherein a number of design and engineering improvements and additions without affecting the flight characteristics of the aircraft.
