Hughes 369 / 500 / H-6

OH-6A Cayuse

1963







Model



Hughes OH-6A Cayuse

Winner of the US Army Light Observation Helicopter competition, eventually in May 1965, against the Bell OH-4 and the Hiller OH-5. An initial Army order for 714 was increased to 1071 for the Culver City, CA plant.

The full military order potential of the OH-6 was never realised as the US Army conducted further competitions, resulting in the Bell OH-58 Kiowa emerging as winner. Hughes developed the Model 369HS / HE from the OH-6, for the civilian market.
