Design of multi-purpose air Avicopter AC310 model ship Chinese aircraft manufacturers began in the second half 2000-ies. The basis of the aircraft was taken by the German aircraft Schweizer 300, which is quite characteristic can be seen in the design of the helicopter, but, in general, the aircraft, in terms of its flight performance and functionality differs significantly from the development of the German aircraft manufacturers.

Thanks to the use of the ready-made design project of the Avicopter AC310 helicopter, Chinese aircraft developers managed to significantly reduce the cost of the aircraft, which was one of the reasons for the lower price, and increased the demand for this model. In addition, Chinese aircraft manufacturers from the Aviation Industry Corporation of China have facilitated and adapted the design of the aircraft, which in turn ensured lower costs in the production of this helicopter model.

At the end of the year 2011 Chinese multipurpose light helicopter Avicopter AC310 able to produce its first scheduled flight, which proved to be quite successful, which led to further production of aircraft of this model.

Despite the rather compact dimensions of the helicopter Avicopter AC310, its cabin can accommodate up to three people, including one pilot and two passengers, however, the current model of the aircraft can not carry any goods, except perhaps for small objects that can be located on site passenger. Nevertheless, the Avicopter AC310 proved itself as a military aircraft capable of patrolling small areas, performing surveillance work, etc. Due to the lack of paired control levers, the Avicopter AC310 helicopter can not be used as a training tool, however, Chinese aircraft builders did not exclude the possibility of an additional modification of this aircraft, which has the ability to train future pilots.

Same HP, 4 less kts VNE than the 300 and a couple hundred extra kg GW, is that what you call "significantly" different?
Well done China 10 points for originalaty you should be very proud of yourself LOL!
