AH-6i helicopter flies in production configuration
The AH-6i light attack/ reconnaissance helicopter in development with Boeing has taken its first flight in production configuration, the company announced on 1 May. The flight moves the programme a step closer to full-scale production. The 20 minute flight saw Boeing pilots conduct forward, rearward and sideward flight at low speed and low elevations. The programme will now continue to prove the helicopter's close air support and attack capabilities, with further flight tests scheduled to expand the flight envelope over the next several months. Boeing is developing the AH-6i to provide close-air support for land-based forces and serve as an attack platform for destroying tanks, armoured vehicles and fortifications. The company received a Foreign Military Sales contract to provide 24 aircraft to an international customer in November 2013. The single-turbine helicopter is an advanced variant of the AH-6M helicopter operated by US Army Special Operations Forces. It is based on the combat-proven OH-6A Cayuse, and incorporates technologies from the Boeing AH-64E Apache multirole attack helicopter. Scott Rudy, AH-6 program director, Boeing, said: â€˜This first AH-6 flight in the production configuration takes us closer to delivering an advanced light attack and reconnaissance helicopter that meets the needs of defence forces around the world.â€™

NorthStar Turns Commercial Helo into Gunship
NASHVILLE, Tennessee â€” U.S. helicopter pilots and maintainers couldnâ€™t stop gawking at NorthStar Aviationâ€™s new light-attack helicopter, the 407MRH, at the Army Aviation Association of Americaâ€™s annual conference. â€œThis is amazing,â€ Spc. Jessica Sanford, 26, an unmanned aerial vehicle maintainer who previously worked on OH-58 Kiowa Warrior armed scout helicopter, gushed on Tuesday at the event, known as Quad A. The Abu Dhabi-based company took a standard commercial Bell 407GH helicopter and transformed it with state-of-the-art sensors, electronic avionics and weapons systems to create the 407MRH, according to Adam Gunn, the companyâ€™s technical director.
The platform can perform any number of missions â€” from light attack to close air support to intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance â€” thanks in part to the FLIR 260HLD electro- optical/infrared sensor beneath the nose, a four-station weapons set-up beneath the wings and an electronic mission-management system in the cockpit. It also features night-vision compatible interior and exterior lighting, meaning those without night-vision goggles canâ€™t see the illumination. The price tag: $9 million. â€œNot everybody has $80 million to buy an Apache,â€ Gunn explained.
