The new medium multirole Ka-62 helicopter incorporates the latest technologies and materials in aircraft building. It meets Russian and international flight standards (Russia’s AP-29, Europe’s CS-29 and JAR-OPS3), offshore operational requirements, international standards for reliability, resource use, flight safety, comfort, usability, service life and repair.
- The Ka-62 is fitted with two Ardiden 3G 1,680 h.p. engines made by SAFRAN HE. Their modular design and dual-channel FADEC system ensures high reliability, heightened ease of operation, and low fuel use. The helicopter is also equipped with a glass cockpit developed by the Russian company Transas.
- The Ka-62 is built to a single-rotor design with a multi-blade anti-torque rotor ducted into the vertical tail fin. It has a five-bladed main rotor, enclosed tail rotor, secondary hydraulics circuit, heavy-duty wheeled landing gear, strengthened fuselage and mounting attachments for major components, as well as shock-absorbent seats for passengers and crew.
- The airframe and propeller blades will be over 50% made of polymeric composite materials.
The Ka-62 is designed for cargo transportation, medevac and search and rescue operations, and can also be used in the oil and gas sector and for corporate purposes.
The Ka-62 has the following competitive advantages:
- It can operate in a wide range of climate and geographic conditions;
- It can operate in external air temperatures from –50°С до +45°С;
- It operates in temperatures down to –35°С without any need to heat the transmission assemblies and engines;
- The Ka-62 can fly in adverse weather conditions, and into known icing conditions;
- The Ka-62 can be operated from an airbase, oil platform and unprepared ground areas;
- The Ka-62 is capable of autonomous deployment and does not need to be stored in a hangar.
