Back Cardoen LongRanger

Cardoen LongRanger

Another modification of the Bell LongRanger was proposed in Chile by Dr. Carlos Cardoen Cornejo of lndustrias Cardoen. This aircraft was a multi-role attack helicopter based on the LongRanger III. On the prototype, which was the first helicopter to be built in Chile, the classic two-pilot cabin has been replaced by a single-seat flat-plate canopy nose section, and armament is carried under fuselage hardpoints. This prototype flew in mid-1989 and had logged 100 flying hours before being flown to Fort Worth to undergo FAA certification.
