Below check the specific characteristics of the helicopter or eVTOL you are looking for. You can select multiple items for each characteristic. The results will be filtered automatically. 

KAI KUH-1/MUH-1

The general appearance of the KUH-1 and MUH-1 remind of the (Super) Puma and Cougar, like the nose and engines placed on top of the fuselage, in front of the main rotor. It has a fixed wheeled gear with a double nose wheel. The main gear is attached to the fuselage with two struts, a short and a long one. Two long narrow cabin windows, directly behin the cockpit, are another typical feature. (photo: Jang Su Lee/WikiMedia)

Kaman H-43 Huskie

Many features of the Kaman Huskie are unique in a single helicopter: a short boxy fuselage with two tail booms each holding a vertical stabiliser, intermeshing two blade main rotors and four main landing gear legs.

Kaman K-190/K-225

These experimental Kaman helicopters are the models on which the intermeshing main rotors were first tested. It has an open cockpit and open frame fuselage, with an engine behind the rotor assembly. At the rear is a vertical stabiliser. 

Kaman SH-2 Seasprite

Kaman is famous for intermeshing main rotor blades, but the Seasprite is an exception. It is more conventional with two engines in nacelles attached to the side of the rotor gear box. Typical are the two wheel main gears that retract forward in the lower side of the fuselage.

Kamov Ka-26

This co-axial helicopter has piston engines in nacelles attached to the upper side of the fuselage, so they look like jet engines. Furthermore, the Ka-26 has two tail booms, with a horizontal stabiliser in the middle and vertical stabilisers at both ends. The four leg gear has two short legs at the front and two long ones at the rear.

Kawasaki OH-1

The OH-1 can best be described as an Agusta A129 with a shrouded tail rotor and the flat canopy windows of the AH-1 Cobra. The gear is fixed.

Kazan Ansat

This Russian helicopter comes in versions with skids or a tricycle wheeled gear. It has two engines, a four blade main rotor and a two blade tail rotor. Typical are the horizontal stabilisers seemingly welded to the underside of the tail boom, with large end plates acting as vertical stabilisers.

Leonardo AW09 (SKYe SH09)

The SKYe SH09, now as AW09 the smallest helicopter in the Leonardo (AgustaWestland) line-up, has a shrouded tail rotor that is big compared to the tailboom and tail. Additionally, the AW09 has a 'standard' tube skids, a five blade main rotor and all glass cockpit doors. (photo: Kecko/WikiMedia)

The AW101, formerly known as EH101, has three engines, one on the hub on top of the fuselage, and one on each side of it. Additionally, it has small sponsons in which the two wheel main gear retracts. The main rotor has five blades that widen towards the tip. Finally, the tail rotor is on the left side, with a low horizontal on the opposite side.

The A109 is a sleek looking helicopter, often with a single wheel retractable gear, but there are also fixed gear and skid versions. The nose gear does not fully retract. Another typical feature is the very pointed tail cone.
