The development of this multi-purpose helicopter began Argentine aircraft manufacturers in 2010 year, at the same time the aircraft was planned exclusively as a private aircraft that can be widely used at the owners for personal use as well as a sports apparatus capable of performing complex maneuvers and to carry out flights to sufficiently high speeds.

Designing the helicopter model Cicare CH-8 UL lasted only 2,5 year, and already in 2013, this aircraft could make its first test flight, and thanks to the fact that all the manufacturer's expectations coincided with the performance of this aircraft, the project was launched in a serial production. To create a greater interest for future owners, the management of the aircraft company Cicare Helicopters decided that this aircraft will be produced solely as kits for self-assembly, and, in view of the fact that such a possibility was envisaged at the stage of designing the helicopter, the assembly Completely ready-made air means does not take a long time.

Because the helicopter model Cicare CH-8 UL has enough light construction and has a fairly powerful propulsion system, the aircraft has a high maneuverability, it can be used as a sports agent.
