Russian Helicopters unwraps multi-role Ka-62

Russian Helicopters unveiled the newest model of the multi-role Ka-62 on 17 May at the HeliRussia international helicopter exhibition in Moscow.

The medium, twin-engined helicopter is a single-rotor design, with an enclosed tail rotor and an airframe and propeller blades consisting of more than 50% polymeric composite materials, says Russian Helicopters.

The Turbomeca Ardiden 3G-powered Ka-62 is also equipped with a glass cockpit - developed by St Petersburg-based Transas - a five-blade rotor, secondary hydraulics circuit, energy-efficient wheeled landing gear, and shock-absorbing seats for the crew and passengers, the company says. The Ka-62 is designed for passenger and cargo transportation, medevac and search and rescue operations.

The Ka-62 will be manufactured by Progress Arsenyev Aviation based in Russia's far east. First flight is scheduled for August 2013, leading to Russian certification and first deliveries in 2015.
