The first flight tests of the helicopter Aerokopter ZA-6 "Sanka" was subjected in 1999 year, and the prototype of a light multipurpose helicopter successfully passed all the required tests, and therefore entered mass production. The main purpose of the aircraft in this model is patrolling and airborne surveillance, however, Ukrainian aircraft manufacturers did not rule out the possibility that in the near future on the basis of the Aerokopter ZA-6 "Sanka" model, an expanded version with a commercial purpose may appear.
