The multipurpose aircraft of the Aerocopter ZA-6 "Sanka" model began to be created by aircraft manufacturers from the "Aerokopter" design bureau in the late 90s of the last century. The aircraft was supposed to receive a wide functional purpose, and despite its rather compact dimensions, it was not intended for private operation, although at the first stages of development, aircraft manufacturers did not exclude the possibility that the helicopter could be exported to other countries and states.

The helicopter model Aerocopter ZA-6 "Sanka", also referred to as Aerocopter AK-1, has a light but strong enough structure, the aerodynamic shape of which provides the aircraft with good controllability, high reliability and maneuverability quite acceptable for this type of aircraft.

The ZA-6 "Sanka" helicopter underwent its first flight tests in 1999, and the prototype of a light multipurpose helicopter successfully passed all the required tests, and therefore entered serial production. The main purpose of the aircraft of this model is to perform patrol work and surveillance from the air, however, Ukrainian aircraft manufacturers did not exclude the possibility that in the near future an extended modification with a commercial purpose may appear on the basis of the ZA-6 "Sanka" model.

Among other things, one of the purposes of the ZA-6 "Sanka" helicopter is also a training function, which is mainly due to the presence of a paired control system.

The cabin of the helicopter ZA-6 "Sanka" model is designed to carry two people - a pilot and one passenger, and, due to the lack of free space, the ZA-6 "Sanka" helicopter cannot be used to transport goods, except for a small amount of baggage , which to some extent limits the functionality of this aircraft.

The light multipurpose aircraft of the Aerocopter ZA-6 "Sanka" model is equipped with a piston-type power plant, consisting of one Subaru EJ-20 aircraft engine, which, with a power of 210 hp, allows the helicopter to accelerate to a maximum flight speed of 190 km \ h. The maximum range of this aircraft is limited to a distance of 500 kilometers, which is very acceptable for this type of aircraft.

According to the data for the middle of 2016, the production of helicopters of the Aerocopter ZA-6 "Sanka" model has been temporarily stopped.
