Airbus Helicopters X6 - French multipurpose helicopter developed by aircraft manufacturer «Airbus Helicopters» with 2015 years.

Helicopter Airbus Helicopters X6 became developed by French engineers, aircraft manufacturers in 2015 year. Within one year, aviarazrabotchikam and designers managed to create a modern design, perfectly combined with the functionality of the aircraft, in connection with which, at the end of 2015 years, aircraft manufacturing giant's management announced its intention to begin design work for the development of the technical part of the aircraft .

According to the plans of developers, Airbus Helicopters X6 helicopter will carry a multi-purpose nature of its use, and thanks to that fact that this model is heavy, the helicopter can be used for transportation on its board a large number of people, and for the transportation of various kinds of cargo. According to experts, the helicopter if his project will be successfully completed by the year 2020, can be an effective substitute for a model helicopter Eurocopter H225.

Exterior design elements represented helicopter Airbus Helicopters X6, partly taken from such models of the same French manufacturer like Airbus Helicopters H160 and Airbus Helicopters H175However, in general, all aircraft will have their own differences in appearance, in particular a helicopter Airbus Helicopters X6 will have a more aerodynamic shape, which according to the manufacturers, should enable to reduce fuel consumption and increase aircraft performance indicators , an aircraft of this model.

In the cockpit of the helicopter model Airbus Helicopters X6 can accommodate up to 21 person - 2 pilot and 19 passengers, moreover, the very aircraft can be used for transportation of goods total weight of up to 5 tons, for search and rescue operations, as well as the aircraft business -class.

As the power plant, on the model of Airbus Helicopters X6 will use two gas-turbine engine, make and characteristics which to date have not been officially announced. Estimated cruising speed of movement of the aircraft should be about 270 km \ h., At the time, as the maximum distance flight will be limited to a range in 1200 kilometers.

The first tests of Airbus Helicopters X6 helicopter can be held in 2019 year, while in the year 2020, the current model can be put into serial production.
