Two years ago, the H3 Sport has ben certified as UL helicopter in France. In two years, it has become the bestseller side-by-side UL helicopter in that country, thanks to its very low operating cost and handling characteristics for ab-initio training of UL pilots.
Last year, first H3 Sport was sold to the new Dynali distributor in Spain (Hedespa).
After having worked (for a long time) in cooperation with Spanish Civil Aviation Authorities, for making the H3 Sport the first UL helicopter certified in that country, Dynali completed EASA- based structural tests of the complete helicopter structure.
Tests were conducted according to the major EASA CS-VLR / BCAR-VLH / FAR27 certification specifications, and up to the most extreme loading conditions.
A complete helicopter was sent to the Institute of Aviation (Warsaw), one of the major test centers in Europe.
Tests started in mid-March and were completed in early April. Results showed that safety factors in the H3 stucture met or exceeded all requirements of the CS-VLR standard. .
The test report will not only be presented to Spanish CAA but also to the German DULV, following the sale of one first H3 in Germany.
