Russian Helicopters intends to begin two years of certification trials of its Ka-62 helicopter early in 2018.

Progress Arsenyev Aviation Company has already produced two flight test models. The first one underwent in-plant tests in May 2017, during which the Ka-62 performed its first circuit flight at a speed of 110 km/h for 15 minutes. Test pilots from JSC Kamov also tested its operating performance, energy supply systems, airborne equipment and power unit.

The second flight model was unveiled at the third Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok in September.

“We continue to prepare the Ka-62 helicopter for mass production,” says CEO Andrei Boginsky. “We will conduct a series of ground and flight certification trials, and after that we will offer the model to the market. This will be a state-of-the-art hi-tech helicopter, which I believe is bound to enjoy good demand in the market.”

A third flight model of the type is scheduled for development in 2018.

The Ka-62 helicopter is designed for passenger transportation, offshore works, emergency medical aid, search and rescue, cargo, patrolling and environmental monitoring. The high operating ceiling and power loading of its engines enable it to perform SAR and evacuation works in mountainous areas. The airframe is constructed of 60 per cent composite materials.
