Biggest Helicopter

Boeing, partnering with Calgary, Alberta-based SkyHook International Inc., is developing a new helicopter JHL-40 which will be the biggest helicopter ever being designed. The helicopter will be able to carry a sling load of nearly 40 tons and transporting it up to 200 nautical miles (230 miles) without refueling.

The JHL-40's planned payload will be approximately twice the maximum load that the Mil Mi-26 (currently the world's largest helicopter) can lift.
