Despite the fact that the helicopter was designed by Argentine aircraft manufacturers of the company «Cicare Helicopteros SA» as agricultural aircraft, the aircraft subsequently has proven himself as a private helicopter, and although its scope was very limited, for the entire period of production 18 was built aircrafts of this model, most of the operation of which continues to this day.

The first work on the design of the helicopter model Cicare CH-5 began in the first half of the 80-ies of the last century. Thanks to the efforts and diligence of the designers, the Cicare CH-5 helicopter received a good aerodynamic shape and quite attractive appearance, and, at the cost of this aircraft, such innovations were practically not reflected, since the previous developments were used. Cicare CH-5 was subjected to its first flight tests in 1986, however, due to a number of technical problems, they were not successfully completed, and only two years later, in 1988, the aircraft was able to successfully complete all the tests.

Helicopter Cicare CH-5 is small in size, as a consequence, has a sufficiently high flight speed, has good handling and a high enough level of maneuverability. However, the small size of the helicopter is reflected on its functional characteristics, particularly in small-sized aircraft cabin can accommodate only one person, among other things, due to lack of onboard space, the transport of goods, this model also carry no can.

However, the helicopter Cicare CH-5 is the best suited for agricultural work, including the aircraft is operated for processing lands various kinds of fertilizers, with a device for irrigation may be dismantled and the helicopter in this case can be used in as a small-sized private aircraft.
