American developers intended to create a popular single-seat aircraft capable of performing very long flights at moderate speeds, which in turn should have allowed it to attract potential consumers. Initially, it was intended to create a double aircraft, but later, specialists stopped on a single version, as it provided a helicopter and a lower cost, and higher flight performance indicators.

His first flight tests of the helicopter model Kinney HRH been in 2001 year, however, initially, this model could not meet all the requirements and aircraft manufacturer expectations, and therefore the project was sent back for revision, and only after a second test, the helicopter model Kinney HRH was launched in mass production.

The aircraft has a very impressive and attractive design and its small dimensions allow the aircraft a very high level of maneuverability, also in a special way affects the safety of flights made.
