K-Max Proves Value of Unmanned Vertical Lift

The U.S. Marine Corps has extended Lockheed Martin’s contract to operate two K-Max unmanned helicopters in Afghanistan into next year. Operating there since December 2011, the converted Kaman cargo-lifting machines have demonstrated a 97-percent operational availability, according to Lockheed Martin. The company hopes that either the Marines or the U.S. Army will create a formal program of record for the K-Max, for at least one unit operating six helicopters.

The EU-supported Volocopter start-up E-volo has raised €1.2 million in a recent crowdfunding campaign, surpassing the €500,000 mark after only two and a half hours.

E-volo’s Volocopter – supported by Climate-KIC, the EU’s main climate innovation initiative – is safer, simpler, and cleaner than normal helicopters. After successfully completing its first test flight last month, it is has now raised enough funding to turn from prototype to production.

CHONGQING (CQNEWS) -- The boss of a food enterprise in Xianfeng Town, Jiangjin District, Chongqing bought a second-hand helicopter at 4 million yuan from Guiyang on November 15th, 2013. It has created quite a stir and, one week later, villagers were still talking about it. They said Cao Daishu bought the helicopter, the boss of a local food enterprise named "Zhimaguan" (an official as humble as a sesame seed).

At 57 years old, Cao enjoys following trends, using WeChat and purchasing on line. His large family travelled to Australia in 2012 and tried a Robinson R44 helicopter, and thoroughly enjoyed it. The price came to over 4 million yuan including the various import tariffs, according to Mrs. Chen, his wife.
