Indeed, the rotor system is similar to the AK-1, only it has a larger size. No dampers, there are torsion plates.

The VV-2 is a new generation helicopter. Experienced pilots took part in its creation, along with engineers, aircraft designers.
The VV-2 are multi-purpose helicopter. Designed to solve a wide range of tasks, such as:
- pilot training in flying clubs;
- patrolling and monitoring territories and objects;
- forest inspection and fire detection;
- inspection of oil pipelines and gas pipelines;
- inspection of power lines;
- conducting exploratory work;
- geological exploration, aerial photography of the area;
- transportation of mail, cargo, baggage;
- air walks;
- tourist and business flights
The VV-2 is an excellent choice not only for individual owners, but also for flight schools. You can personally verify the flight characteristics of the helicopter. Our company provides an opportunity to perform test flights.DSCN9977.JPG

Training in a 'cobra' was after you had several hours in a UH1 - As a trainer you lack the pilot instructors interaction with the student,
1. can't see his reactions to task
2. can't see how student interacts with the task at hand
3. can't anticipate students actions on controls
4. unable to use nonverbal communications
5. unable to see the stress on student
All the instructor sees is the back of his head - accidents in tandem seating aircraft due to CRM issues higher

Tours, No one will want to sit alone on a tour and a 'cobra' is a service platform without it's weapons.

1. external loads (hook work , ag/water tanks)
2. patrols (good guys looking for bad guys)

Until you get your TC this is all academic . Provide 'test flights'? Is that an offer?

I have done initial,🤪 Production☺ & Maintenance Test flights😁 in the past. Have you managed a proper test card system? :rolleyes:

The zoom, climbs and turns are nice for PR but we all know what the real tests are😔

Dear Hillberg, we value your opinion on the use of a tandem scheme in training pilots. This is your personal opinion and we respect it. All your remarks points 1 through 5 can take place, but our practice proves otherwise. Our chief pilot has had a "trial lesson" with all engineers who took part in the design of the helicopter, all have passed the trial lesson of helicopter management, no one was uncomfortable. He was comfortable and practical. Moreover, it was observed that under the tandem scheme, the cadet acquires the skills of independent piloting almost twice as quickly (there is no babysitter nearby :) ).
The USA, Turkey, China and India are interested in our helicopters, and intentionally in the VV2. We have already had a number of meetings with the Chinese. The Chinese are planning to buy the entire VV2 project.
Now on test flights. Our company built, tested and certified V24 aircraft. We independently conducted all tests, which are prescribed by aviation rules - ground and flight tests. We have high-quality specialists who have extensive experience working in aviation factories and design bureaus. We have conducted all test flights and we know what real test flights are and not just flights.
The quarantine will end, you can come to us and check the flight qualities of our aircraft and helicopter. Best wishes.

A new "pilot" learns better in a side to side placement,
Look up Fort Ruckers human factors in training reports set up by the Army. [plenty of public information archived these days.
You do have some nice equipment

SOFTEX Aero airplanes and helicopters were presented at world exhibitions in Germany, China, Iran, the United Arab Emirates, the USA and Ukraine. Thanks to the use of innovative solutions in the field of aircraft engineering, our airplanes and helicopters have received increased attention from both participants and visitors to aviation exhibitions.

Any tech information engine, fuel burn, rotor diameter, weights, cruise & DNE speeds prices hours on blades engine + costs etc.
Why sell the project

Why sell the project
Helicopter VV2 is designed in classical single-rotor configuration with 4 bladed main rotor and 2 bladed tail rotor. Czech Turboshaft engine PBS TS100-ZA is installed on the helicopter. Fuselage of the helicopter is a monolith composite structure and is a main load bearing element, to which all units and aggregates are attached. Helicopter has a wing, which increases speed characteristics and unloads the main rotor which thus increases the fuel economy. Crew compartment is a two-seat tandem scheme. Crew seats, control sticks, control panel and other equipment is installed in the crew compartment. Control panel is installed in the nose part of the cabin and there is a display for the second pilot, mounted in the front pilot seat back. Collective pitch control system and cyclic pitch control blades has a rigid mechanical connection with the swash plate. Control system of the tail rotor – mixed. Crew seats are equipped with safety belts. Shoulder and waist belt provide reliable fixation of crew on their places. Side windows are equipped with small windows in addition to mandatory heat system ventilation. The helicopter has a skid-equipped landing gear made of titanium alloy. Skids have brackets for installation of detachable wheels, designed to move the helicopter on the ground. Helicopter has a footstep for convenient boarding.

In today's market service life is a big factor both for private & quasi government organisations.
Some component life No including engine & main component repair\replacement costs hourly cost.
Where are you in any approvals

The helicopter is currently undergoing tests. Previously, we can talk about the overhaul resource of 2000 hours. The engine has an TBO of 2000 hours.

I want to introduce you to another of our projects. V51 is a five-seat helicopter with a gas turbine engine (in the pictures a modification of this helicopter with piston engines is V52).

The helicopter model was purged in a wind tunnel. And also the aerodynamic calculation was performed in all modes with a special program on a computer. Therefore, we assume that the flight characteristics will be in the settlement area
