Tests of the latest helicopter engine start in Russia


The St. Petersburg company "UEC-Klimov" has completely completed the assembly of a demonstrator of the newest domestic turboshaft helicopter engine. At the moment, the unit is being prepared for bench tests, according to the press service of the Rostec corporation.


The power plant, called VK-650V, has been under development since 2019. The new engine is being created to replace the French Arrius 2G1 units, which are currently installed on the Russian Ka-226T multipurpose helicopters. In addition, in the future, VK-650V will also be able to be used on civilian Ansat-U and VRT-500 vehicles, as well as on UAVs.

It is reported that the new engine will be able to deliver 650 hp and 750 hp. in takeoff and emergency mode, respectively. In this case, the fuel consumption will be 245 grams. per hp / h or 280 gr. in cruise flight mode.

The fully assembled demonstrator of the domestic helicopter engine has already been installed on a special test bench. Testing of the power plant will begin in the near future.

The first flight tests of the VK-650V are scheduled for 2022. The engine should be certified in 2023, and mass production is expected to begin in 2024.

      This thing was needed twenty years ago. And it will be ready only in four years. The roast rooster that pecked has already been eaten a long time ago, and we are just now stirring.

        How did you realize that you were moving? In the article I read that by 2024 or presumably they will start, and if not, then they will definitely forget about the money allocated!

    - And what about Russia ... is already a NATO member ??? - Oh, what gullibility ... - And if tomorrow ... a local war ... - And what ... - France under the "Lend-Lease" ... will be contraband to supply us with its engines; thermal imagers for our tanks; UAV engines; as well as a bunch of their electronics and other equipment ??? - To his probable enemy ... - Russia ???
    - There is no need for any intelligence ... - everything is in full view ...
    - Damn, there are helicopters, but there are no engines ... - And the whole world will wait until Russia is honored to establish their production ... - And only then they will start "throwing their glove to Russia" ...
    - And the Second World War (WWII) ... -that ... she never taught anything, or what ???

      Only rabbits breed quickly. At least 10 years pass from the start of development to serial production. This is if everything went well, without mistakes.

    It is more of a UAV engine than for the Ka-226 and Ansat. VK-800 is being prepared for turntables.

      If it is suitable for a UAV, then maybe it will be suitable for the new "Corn"?

        And who and why needs a "cornman"? It is impossible to create an airplane cheaper than the An-2, because it was created from what Antonov found in a landfill. And if it is more expensive, then it is not needed. There is L-410, so they will build it.

          The bicycle is also inexpensive, but it is still invented and is needed by many. As well as "Corn".

            Bicycles are made for different categories of people, from cheap to very expensive. To create an aircraft to replace the An-2, it must be at least 2 times cheaper than the L-410.
            And building a single-engine aircraft is very stupid, especially for the regions of the Far East and the Far North.
