Due to innovative design features, Viscount V100 can be used for the purposes of various aviation works, specifically:
— air cargo transportation and air tourism;
— air patrol over gas pipelines and oil pipelines, high-voltage overhead power lines, forestlands, water bodies, etc.;
— aerial photography, and instrumental monitoring;
— ambulance airplane; — radio relay aircraft.
Cargo transportations and air tourism. The airplane has an interior that is unique in its class, which makes it possible for passengers to walk freely when the plane is airborne. The low touchdown speed and the convenient landing gear arrangement make it possible for the plane to land on poorly prepared airfields, including the possibility for the crew to visually choose an airfield when the plane is still airborne. The aircraft can be operated in hard-to-reach remote regions where transportation network is being through its development stage.
Besides, the airplane perfectly suits the customized air transportations carried out by governmental agencies, e.g., Emergencies Ministry, the Federal Border Service, etc. Spacious cabin allows the trans¬portation of bulky cargo, which can be loaded through specialized cargo door.
Skydiving. The airplane stands among the best «lifting» aircrafts in the industry. The Viscount exceeds its analogs in both climbing speed and the capacity of the passenger cabin, the criteria that are of utmost importance for skydivers.
