The lack of tail rotor ensures increased load lifting capacity, higher OGE hover ceiling and ability to fly at the altitude of 5000m (16393ft) due to higher efficiency of the helicopter coaxial configuration and lower (by 10÷15 %) power plant loss.
Absence of interaction between individual helicopter control channels makes the piloting easier and simpler.
Shorter tail boom and absence of a tail rotor make the helicopter very compact that, combined with its good piloting qualities, makes the helicopter very maneuverable and allows to operate the helicopter from off-shore platforms and landing sites of limited dimensions; the whole helicopter fuselage including its tail section is within the limits of the main rotors diameter.
The helicopter can land and takeoffs from unprepared sites including sites overgrown with shrubs.
Absence of tail rotor eliminates the personnel injuries when the helicopter is on the ground.
