Description Helicopter designers and entrepreneurs can easily forget that the development of a prototype (up to very high professional standards) and the certification process necessary to enter full scale production and achieve sales are two very distinct things. The MK-Helicopter is yet another example of an aircraft that seems to be stuck between these two phases.

The development of the MK 3 started in 1995 with its forerunner the MK 2. This was a two-seater model powered by a diesel engine. These engine types are seldom seen in aircraft due to their relative high mass to power ratio. There was only one prototype built of the MK-2. Years later, in 2006, the MK-3 was introduced at the 2006 ILA in Berlin, powered by the same diesel engine. This three-seater model is clearly derived from the MK-2. The frame is built from aluminium tubes and the cabin can be equipped with a glass cockpit. The design is modern looking, with its large nose window section giving the pilot and passengers an excellent view.

Time will tell if the MK-helicopter is able to attract financial investors so that it can move onto the next phase, certification.
