X Baskets

K55X_01 This type has a pilot’s compartment and 4 passenger compartments, each accommodating 3 or 4 passengers. The pilot’s compartment is designed for the pilot plus 6 fuel cylinders and is on the right side of the basket and it makes better wiev for pilot forward, backward and to the right. The overall capacity is then pilot + 14 for K55X or pilot + 16 passengers for K60X. There is an option to have an extra crew person or passenger in the pilot compartment, however, the number of fuel cylinders would have to be reduced in accordance with the Flight Manual.
