A conceptual rescue aircraft designed for the year 2030, the Sikorsky 'KANI' aircraft is capable of providing ample space for two people to be accommodated.

The aircraft vehicle is intended to provide low-altitude search and rescue operations in a compact design that's entirely electric and thus eco-friendly. Being that search and rescue missions in the wilderness are often done on foot, the Sikorsky 'KANI' could provide a more flexible and cost-effective solution for park rangers.

The Sikorsky 'KANI' rescue aircraft is capable of being quite agile in the air, but is also small enough to be transported around and stored when necessary. The lower cost of the aircraft would enable parks to keep their own unit rather than have to outsource operations or hire pilots.
