In Primorye, the production of an experimental batch of the Ka-62 helicopter started


In Primorsky Krai, the Progress plant launched production of an experimental batch of the latest Ka-62 multi-purpose helicopter. At the moment, it is planned to produce six cars, two of which will be used for intra-regional transportation.


Recall that the creation of the Ka-62, as a civilian version of a military multi-purpose helicopter, began in 2011. Later, the device became an independent development. For the first time, in hover mode, the car took to the air in 2016, and then, a year later, the helicopter made its first full flight.

According to the announced plans, the 9-seater corporate version of the Ka-62 should pass certification this year. Then, two years later, an offshore version designed for flights over water will “compete” for the relevant document. In the same 2022, a search and rescue vehicle will be created, and in 2024 a police version will appear.

The take-off weight of the device is 6,5 tons with a carrying capacity of up to 2,5 tons. The helicopter is capable of covering distances of up to 770 km, developing a speed of up to 308 km / h. Ka-62 (depending on version) is able to take on board up to 15 passengers.

It is worth noting that at the initial stage the helicopter will be equipped with French Ardiden 3G turboshaft engines. However, later the machine will receive power plants and a domestic-made transmission.

    Hopefully. Any - I emphasize - any product made in Russia is excellent. These are jobs. And all the blessings that are connected with this. But! Any dunce who, regardless of his position, delivers guest workers to us or buys imported, is an enemy or a dumbass.

      There is a wild field next to us, but the people we need there are KB Ivchenko, Motor Sich, KB Progress, KB Yuzhnoe, KB Antonov, KB Iskra, KB Nikolaevsky, Shipbuilding.
      Why hasn’t the national program been begun to search and export the specialists we need? Preferably with documentation.

        Everything has been done for a long time, just quietly.

        Here is the part of MotorSich production we need that was transported to the Russian Federation 2 years before the maidown. In other directions the same. Just starting production from scratch, even with documentation and specialists, is not so fast. It is necessary to manufacture non-standard equipment, TD was written for a specific production, with the existing equipment fleet. With us it may be more modern, but OTHER. It is necessary to rewrite and work out TD (and sometimes CD). There may be other materials, it is also necessary to recycle CD and TD. And this is time.
