At the beginning of the year 2006, aircraft manufacturers, together with the designers were able to develop a compact and aerodynamic design of the aircraft, it is lightweight, allowing the helicopter to perform flights at fairly high speeds.

The Belgian ultra-light helicopter proved to be a multipurpose aircraft, in particular, it is also regarded as a private aircraft capable of carrying two people on its board, both as a business aircraft and as an air training vehicle. Nevertheless, if at the initial stage of the development of the Sagita Sherpa model it was assumed that the helicopter would be cheap enough that it should lead to its popularization, then in the future, the aircraft, due to sufficiently long developments, became quite expensive, that Has reduced its demand.

The first flight multipurpose Belgian helicopter Sagita Sherpa in February 2010 years and due to the fact that all tests have been successfully completed, the project was sent to the serial production, where its production is carried out with 2010 years exclusively under existing orders, which do not, according to official statements so much.
