Based on long-accumulated expertise with helicopter manufacturing technologies, Kawasaki is developing a variety of helicopters, both large and compact.
Kawasaki manufactures an impressive lineup of helicopters, large and compact, including the BK117, Japan’s first domestically-developed rotorcraft. For the Japan Ministry of Defense, we produce the CH-471J/JA transport helicopter and the OH-1 observation helicopter, and under a licensed production agreement, we manufacture the airframe and engines for the MCH-101 minesweeping and transport helicopter and the CH-101 Antarctic transport support helicopter.
