  • ANALYSIS: Russian Helicopters looks to civil market for renewed lift

    News | 12 Aug 2014 08:43 | Dominic Perry

    If you wanted proof that undoubted success in the military segment does not automatically translate into the civil sphere then you could look no further than Russian Helicopters. While its military products are in some cases class-leading – whatever you think of the Mi-17’s appearance it continues to sell in droves – the company’s two latest civil developmental programmes are showing teething troubles. The Ka-62, a 6.5t rotorcraft that features a great deal of Western content, is slipping ever later. First flight was originally due last year, but that has now been pushed into the second half of 2014. And the Mi-38, a 15.6t helicopter that made its first flight in 2003, has been crawling incrementally closer to certification.http://www.flightglobal.com/news/articles/ANALYSIS-Russian-Helicopters-looks-to-civil-market-for-renewed-lift-400638/
