Designing an aircraft Auroa machine model aircraft manufacturers from New Zealand started the company «Auroa Helicopters» in 2010 year. The main purpose for starting development was the need to ensure that private owners of aircraft high-performance, reliable and inexpensive helicopters ultra-light class able to be used to carry out many purposes, including those related to the private transport of persons, as air taxis, as a patrol and observation tools, and so on. P.

Helicopter Auroa has a simple and light construction, which, however, has the necessary rigidity, which ensures a high level of safety during flights. By using just a light frame construction, the experts were able to be installed on the aircraft low-power power plant, due to which, the price of the aircraft was able to greatly reduce, without affecting the flight-technical indicators that are quite comparable to more powerful lungs models of aircraft this type.

His first flight tests of the aircraft model has undergone in Auroa 2012 year - aircraft manufacturers took less than two years to develop the project and its implementation, followed by a test. Despite the high transience of work on the creation of ultra-light helicopter, the aircraft was able to successfully complete all required tests and trials, resulting in, in the same year and was launched serial production of aircraft of this model.

A relatively small design Auroa air model aircraft ship provides good handling and high maneuverability, however, due to the compact cabin dimensions, Auroa helicopter can not be used for transportation of goods. Nevertheless, the helicopter can be used for transportation on its board of two people, but, in addition to ordinary flights, the aircraft can also be involved in the training as a means, aided by the presence of paired control.

Powerplant Auroa helicopter consists of a single turbine engine brand Solar T62 Titan, which allows the aircraft to develop traction power 160 hp, which in turn provides the acceleration of the helicopter up to the maximum airspeed in 170 km \ h., With the possibility of overcoming distances at distances of 350 kilometers.

Manufacture of aircraft is carried out «Auroa Helicopters» company in two basic versions - already fully assembled and as kits for self-assembly of the future owners, which provides a very affordable price, in the absence of labor-intensive work.
