Application of Large Helicopters to Commercial Transportation 780537

The helicopter's unique ability to transport large work crews and heavy equipment to remote areas quickly, cheaply, and efficiently will become increasingly important and useful as easily accessible resources are depleted. The introduction of large helicopters into operation will result in increased capabilities and expanded application of helicopter transport.
Because costs prohibit certifying a new large helicopter, updating and adapting existing machines, developed under military programs is a very desirable approach. The Boeing Vertol CH-47 “Chinook” helicopter is a prime candidate for this opportunity due to its successful history in the U.S. Army as well as with foreign users.
