|The Canadian Forces Bell CH-146 Griffon is a typical utility helicopter|
A utility helicopter is a multi-purpose helicopter. A utility military helicopter can fill roles such ground attack, air assault, cargo, MEDEVAC, command and control, and troop transport. Some overlap of terminology is inevitable with transport helicopter.
A utility helicopter has been described[by whom?] as the size between a light observation helicopter and a medium transport helicopter or simply a medium transport helicopter. Terminology may understandably be confused since only a few countries deploy heavy-lift helicopters.
