The Army also initiated the development of a new, common turbine engine for its helicopters that would become the General Electric T
Origins[ edit ] During the s and s, American rotorcraft manufacturer Piasecki Helicopter emerged as a pioneering developer of tandem-rotor helicopters; perhaps the most famous of these being the piston-powered H "Flying Banana", an early utility and transport helicopter.
DuringPiasecki was officially renamed as Vertol standing for vertical take-off and landing ; it was around this time that work commenced on the development of a new generation of tandem rotor helicopter.
Duringthe new design received the internal company designation of Vertol Modelor simply V; this rotorcraft differed from its predecessors by harnessing the newly developed turboshaft engine instead of piston-based counterparts.
During Juneit was announced that the U. Army had awarded a contract to Vertol for the construction of ten production-standard aircraft based on the V, which were designated YHC-1A.
Spenser, the cutback had been enacted in order that the U. Army would be able to divert funds for the development of the rival V helicopter, which was also a turbine-powered tandem rotor design but substantially larger than the V During Augustthe first YHC-1A-model rotorcraft conducted its first flight; independently, it was shortly followed by the maiden flight of an improved model intended for the commercial and export markets, designated II.
Marine Corps, where it was designated HRB Air Force placed its own order for 12 XCHB Sea Knight helicopters, which used the XHA designation; however, the service later decided to cancelled the order due to delays in its delivery; instead, the U.
Air Force opted to procure the rival Sikorsky SR in its place. The UHA variant was a modified version of the rotorcraft to perform the vertical replenishment mission.
Marine Corps' existing CHA fleet, which had proven to be relatively unreliable and problematic in service. Navy also acquired a small number of UHDs for ship resupply purposes.
Marine Corps received a number of CHF standard rotorcraft. This model retained the TGE engines used on the CHD while featuring revised avionics and featured a number of other modifications.
The CHF was the final production model of the type. Over time, the majority of the U. During Julythey took delivery of their first three aircraft, which was configured to seat up to 25 passengers.
Under this arrangement, all Model civilian and military aircraft built in Japan were referred to by the KV designation. Plans for actual production of the aircraft were not announced.
Marine watches two CH Sea Knights, The Boeing Vertol CH Sea Knight is a medium-lift tandem-rotor transport helicopterfurnished with a set of counter-rotating main rotors in a tandem-rotor configuration.
It was typically powered by a pair of General Electric T58 turboshaft engines, which were mounted on each side of the rear rotor pedestal; power to the forward rotor was transferred from the rear-mounted engines via a drive shaft.
For redundancy, both engines are coupled so that either one would be capable of powering both of the main rotors in the event of a single engine failure or a similar emergency situation. Each of the rotors feature three bladeswhich can be folded to better facilitate storage and naval operations.
Two of the main landing gear were installed within protruding rear sponsons ; the free interior space of the sponsons are also used to house fuel tanks, possessing a total capacity of US gallons 1, L.
When operated in a typical configuration, the CH would usually be operated by a crew of three; a larger crew could be accommodated when required, which would be dependent upon mission specifics.
