The MBB/Kawasaki BK117 is a twin-engined medium utilityâ€“transport helicopter. It was a joint development between Messerschmitt-BÃ¶lkow-Blohm (MBB) of Germany and Kawasaki of Japan. MBB was later purchased by Daimler-Benz and eventually became a part of Eurocopter. The BK117 is popular for passenger and VIP-transport, seating from seven up to 10 people. It is also used for aerial crane and sling work, law enforcement, and military transport, and is exceptional as an air ambulance and search and rescue platform. Its successor, the EC 145, was developed from the BK117 C-1 version.
This is a Fork of the original BK117 from Flightgear.
