Russian Helicopters will present a brand new utility helicopter, the Ka-62 at the third Eastern Economic Forum to be held in Vladivostok on September 6-7.
The Ka-62 helicopter is designed for the passenger transport, off-shore works, emergency medical services, search and rescue, cargo movement inside the cabin and as suspended load, patrolling and environmental monitoring.
The high operating ceiling and high power loading of its engines enable Ka-62 to perform the search-and-rescue and evacuation works in mountainous areas.
Its airframe stands out with perfect aerodynamic lines, high capacity of the cargo and passenger cabin, the tricycle landing gear with tail support, and large widows which simultaneously serve as emergency exits, a Russian Helicopters release said today.
Other distinguishing features include the classical scheme with a multibladed tail rotor in the vertical tailfin protected against incidental damages. Moreover, Ka-62 stands out with a low noise level.
Ka-62 is the first helicopter ever in the history of the global helicopter industry equipped with a system for general helicopter equipment control, as well as an integrated open-architecture flight management system built to the principle of 'glass cockpit'.
Andrei Boginsky, the CEO of Russian Helicopters said, "we lay hopes on this state-of-the-art and hi-tech model. I am confident that all potential users will soon be able to fully appreciate all of the advantages of Ka-62."
