Kaman K-Max Deploys to St. Louis for Construction Work

By Carmelo Turdo
A Kaman K-MAX (K-1200) crew deployed to the St. Louis area for construction work last week from their temporary base at Creve Coeur Airport. The K-MAX, operated by Rainier Heli International of Kirkland, WA is often used for heavy lift duties in the construction and logging industries as well as for aerial firefighting operations. It can lift a cargo hook capacity load of 6,000lbs, that being more than it's empty weight. Rainier Heli International, one of the Halvorson Family aviation businesses, also provides helicopter leasing and sales services. Here we show the K-MAX refueling and repositioning next to an Airbus AS350B3 from the same company.
