In Hᴜɴɢᴀʀʏ, agricultural flight has a long history. The Hungarian Air Service started spraying with antiquated fixed-wing aircraft many years ago; warmers arrived later, about 1970. The Air Force had a lot of Kamov Ka-26 heliᴄᴏᴘters but after 1989, small firms bought them. Kamovs grew older with time, making it harder to locate replacement components.
Around 2005, a number of companies made the decision to swap out the Kamov Ka-26 for a more modern model. The Alouette II has been chosen by several enterprises. Aerospatiale’s SA-318 C Alouette II is a fairly simple heliᴄᴏᴘter. It was the first heliᴄᴏᴘter in production to use a gas turbine engine rather of a bulkier traditional piston engine.
The Alouette II has a strong engine, great flight characteristics, and a simple design. The main issue is that farming produces a lot of dust, and dust is bad for jet turbine engines. Therefore, it needs a ɢʀᴀssy landing pad.
In the video below, you will see an Alouette II is working near Dudar. The business has a track where the heliᴄᴏᴘter may land for dust protection. The heliᴄᴏᴘter is used to spray the sunflower field. This chemical guards against fungus on sunflowers. Let’s watch it!
