Work on the design of the aircraft model BHR Fandango F360 started by French engineers in conjunction with the Spanish aviarazrabotchikami in 2008 year. The new model of ultra-light aircraft was widely used in the civil aviation sector, and, we are talking not only about the private use of aircraft of this model, but the application in the commercial sector, which have the helicopter was quite a lot of potential.

It was used composite materials, which allowed greatly facilitate the construction of the aircraft, and to strengthen it at the same time, that does important for ultra-light aircraft, especially when it comes to safety when designing the helicopter BHR Fandango F360 French aircraft manufacturers. Compact design helicopter dimensions provided among other things also a fairly high level of maneuverability that by using a rather powerful propulsion system allows the aircraft to be used as a sports agent.

Thanks to rather intensive development, the BHR Fandango F360 helicopter made its first flight in 2010, however, the aircraft could not successfully complete all the required tests, as there were some complications with the stabilization of the helicopter during the flight. At the end of 2011, the BHR Fandango F360 aircraft made a second test flight, which turned out to be much more successful than the previous one, in connection with which the device was able to obtain the appropriate safety certificate, however, the project was launched into serial production only in 2013.

On board the aircraft BHR Fandango F360 can accommodate up to two people, including one pilot and one passenger, however, because of the relatively small maximum takeoff weight, the aircraft can not be used for cargo transportation. The main purpose of a commercial helicopter BHR Fandango F360 is to use it as a means of air taxis, but, to date, the aircraft has not been involved in it.

The helicopter model BHR Fandango F360 equipped with piston power plant, consisting of a four-cylinder aircraft engine brand Lycoming HIO 360, the ability to develop traction in 180 hp, which contributes to acceleration of the aircraft up to a maximum airspeed in 200 km \ h., While the maximum distance that the helicopter can be overcome without committing additional planting is 380 kilometers, which is quite acceptable.
