Rotorcraft manufacturers fall into two categories:
1. those that can design, certify and manufacture new designs from
scratch and
2. those that can only manufacture extant designs under license.
Boeing Vertol is an example of the first type and Kawasaki Heavy
Industries, who license-produced Boeing Vertol designs for much of its
recent history, is an example of the second type.
This is an incomplete list, which may never be able to satisfy particular
