Airbus Helicopters has just announced the launch of the concept phase of its planned X6 heavy-lift helicopter. Over the next two years, the company will be seeking input from corporate customers and evaluating different designs. Possible applications for the aircraft could include oil and gas missions, or search and rescue operations.
Once the concept phase is over, the X6 will enter its development phase. The finished aircraft is expected to be available sometime in the 2020s.
