The first prototype of the multipurpose helicopter Ka-62 has risen in the air
April 28 at the site of the Arsenyev Aviation Company Progress. N.I. Sazykina of the Russian Helicopters holding (part of Rostec State Corporation) took off the first prototype (OP-1) of an average Ka-62 multi-purpose helicopter. The rise in the "hovering" mode was carried out within the framework of factory flight tests and was completed successfully.
OP-1 Ka-62 completed a take-off from the ground to assess its overall performance and verify the operation of the main power supply systems and on-board equipment. The helicopter was flown into the air by test pilots of the Nikolai Kamov Design Bureau, which is the main developer of the Ka-62. Previously, the car has successfully passed a series of tests in ground racing mode.
“This is a very significant event for the Russian Helicopters holding and a natural result of our work,” said Alexander Mikheev, the holding’s general director. “The new Ka-62 helicopter will be a worthy addition to the civilian versions of the deserved and most massive Mi-8 / 17 helicopter in the world, closing an extremely popular niche in the helicopter class with an take-off mass of 6-7 tons.”
The Ka-62 was designed to perform a wide range of tasks. The main applications of the Ka-62 include the transportation of passengers, rescue operations, and work in the oil and gas industry. Due to the spacious and comfortable cabin helicopter is perfect for corporate transportation. The high level of the power supply of the helicopter allows for a wide range of heights during its operation. Ka-62 can be used in hot climates and fly over the sea.
