An upstart in the helicopter business, Marenco Swisshelicopter, claim their SKYe SH09 is:
“the first single-engine helicopter designed with a clean sheet of paper” since 1976.
If you compare this market with the automotive market, it’s like we’re competing with cars from 1976 whose only upgrades have been airbags and a GPS scrolling map. The market has not seen real innovation in years.
What 1976-design are they referencing and how accurate is their claim?
