Overview
 
In its final configuration the PKZ-2 ("PKZ" for Petrochy-Karman-Zurovec whose ideas and decisions gave a life to helicopter) was a counter-rotating machine with two rotors and three 100 hp Gnome rotary engines; construction was light and assembly easy for transportation purposes. The PKZ-2 was a "tethered" helicopter, with tethering cables retracted by winches on the ground. The observer occupied a special cupola-like basket; he could leave the cupola with a parachute, if necessary.
