Hi,

the ARDC (Aeronautical Research & Development Corporation) had acquired Brantly Helicopter Corporation division from Lear Jet Industries in 1969,it also

developed the RP-440 flying-crane helicopter from Omega BS-12,the TP-900

was a three turbine helicopter developed from RP-440 and Omega BS-17 to

accommodate 14 passenger in detachable pod,also the project uses included

the carriage of freight,refrigerated cargo and pre-sorted mail.
