The multipurpose helicopter, which subsequently found wide application in the private and military sphere, began to be developed by Argentinean designers and aircraft manufacturers in 2003. When designing the Cicare CH-14 Aguilucho helicopter, a very unusual design was used, due to which the aircraft received an angular shape, which, in fact, runs counter to the classical laws of aerodynamics. However, due to the fact that the helicopter was not designed for high-speed flights, there was an explanation for this, which was that the more angular design of the helicopter minimized the risk of detecting the aircraft by radar control, besides, the angular shape provided the aircraft with more simple assembly and simplified the technological process of creating this aircraft.

The aircraft model Cicare CH-14 Aguilucho has made its first flight in March 19 2007 years, and, thanks to the fact that all planned, flight performance of the aircraft in line with expectations aviarazrabotchikov project a few months later was officially presented. Since 2009 years, helicopter Cicare CH-14 Aguilucho entered series production, which continues to be to this day, due to its high demand and multi-purpose use.

The helicopter model Cicare CH-14 Aguilucho has been focused mainly on the military sphere of application, where it can be used either as a patrol agents, or as the training aircraft. However, experts do not exclude that this aircraft can also be used by private owners, or different kinds of law enforcement agencies for their own purposes.

The helicopter cockpit can accommodate two people - a pilot and a passenger, when it comes to the civil sphere of application of the model or the same - the instructor and student, in cases where a helicopter intended to be used as training aids. Due to the absence on board an aircraft of sufficient free space, the helicopter can not be adapted to transport any cargo, minimizing its scope.

The power plant of the helicopter model Cicare CH-14 Aguilucho consists of one Rolls-Royce Allison 250-C20-B turboshaft engine, capable of developing a thrust of 420 hp, which allows the device to accelerate to a maximum speed of 240 km / h, and fly at distances up to 1000 kilometers.
