The works related to the design of the light multi-purpose helicopter model Panha Sorena started by Iranian aircraft builders in 2010 year, and, unlike the previous aircraft of this Iranian manufacturer, the model Panha Sorena is positioned exclusively as a civilian aircraft. As the primary base, Iranian engineers and designers used a number of American light helicopters, including the Robinson R44 model, which is very characteristic of design and design features, but in general, the Panha Sorena helicopter has a number of its own advantages and is therefore positioned as Separate model.

The aircraft Panha Sorena has a very compact design that allows it to be very maneuverable aircraft, which is very important, especially if we are talking about a multi-purpose. Due to the construction of light, which has a very aerodynamic shapes, the helicopter has a reduced drag in flight, allowing it to accelerate to higher speeds and lower fuel consumption.

Panha Sorena helicopter made its first flight into the air in 2014 year, and thanks to the fact that all the necessary test tests were successfully completed, the project was sent to mass production, where it continues to be today. Panha Sorena helicopters are manufactured by Iranian aircraft builders in two basic configurations - as fully-operational aircraft, and as self-assembly kits, which significantly reduces the cost of the aircraft and does not lead to a lengthy procedure for the self-construction of the helicopter.


Cabin Panha Sorena


The helicopter model Panha Sorena can be used for transportation of people, as a means of air taxi, as the training aircraft and in other fields of civil aviation. On board the aircraft can accommodate up to four people, including one pilot and three passengers, however, for several reasons, to carry on its board any goods that aircraft may not, with the exception of pilot luggage and passengers, which to some extent reduces operating the possibility of the aircraft.

Iranian multipurpose civil helicopter Panha Sorena equipped power plant consisting of a piston aircraft engine brand Continental IO-550, the ability to develop traction in 300 hp, which in turn enables the helicopter to perform flights at a cruising speed of 180 km \ h., Exercising flights at ranges up to 420 kilometers.
