Ka-102 - promising Russian helicopter developed by the design bureau of the Russian holding "Helicopters of Russia", which is a multipurpose aircraft adapted to carry as cargo, and people.

The Ka-102 helicopter has a rather unusual design, in particular, this applies to the aerodynamic shape of the aircraft, as well as to a number of design solutions that definitely contribute to the aircraft performance of this aircraft. In particular, the helicopter has four air screws, two of which provide the helicopter with a vertical movement, and the other two - in the horizontal direction. In general, the design of the aircraft resembles the design of the US military helicopter Boeing CH-47 Chinook, however, this is more related to the external design, but in essence, technically, both models are very different from each other.

According to the data for 2015 year, the development of this aircraft is actively continuing, and the Ka-102 helicopter is considered primarily as a civilian aircraft that allows transportation from 80 to 90 passengers at a maximum speed of flight at 500 km / h. Turn has no analogues in the world. In addition to fulfilling the function of passenger transportation, the Ka-102 helicopter can also be actively used for transportation of all kinds of cargo, which is facilitated by a high index of cargo capacity, and it is not ruled out that the helicopter can also be adapted for military needs, however, at the moment This is not the case.

Suffice The length of the fuselage of the aircraft provides helicopter Ka-102 good seating, and, an improved aerodynamic shape of the fuselage, and also provides a reduced resistance during flight. Maximum take-off weight of the helicopter is 30 thousand kilograms, which in turn provides both adequate for the type of aircraft loading capacity, which ensures its multipurpose use.

The power plant of the Ka-102 helicopter, according to the proposed project for its creation, will consist of two gas turbine engines, however, the true power of each of them is currently not disclosed by Russian aircraft manufacturers. Among other things, it is also assumed that the maximum flight range of this helicopter can be about 1100 kilometers, which in turn in most cases will be able to satisfy future customers.

It is expected that his first test Ka-102 be able to pass in the year 2020, however, given the relatively high complexity of the project, this date may be extended to a later date.

I sincerely wonder where this came the blizzard. What is depicted in the picture with the helicopter - one of the many concepts, along with Ka-92 and similar ideas, of which each CB tons.
This, like many other projects, never even reached the level of a technical proposal at the level of at least Rostec. Exclusively fantasy about "what if". In any case, complex transitions are usually accompanied by a flying concept laboratory. There is nothing like this at all.
Therefore, all these outlined "plans" for launching something in 2020 are nothing more than someone's strange fantasies.
Moreover, all such concepts were born under the PSV program (promising high-speed helicopter), which the government initiated back in 2010 and the money for which was "mastered" by Russian Helicopters for a flying laboratory based on the Mi-24.

Thank you for the article on the Ka-102, an interesting informative article. I especially liked the salon: S.V. Mikheev does not allow hack-work. Now, if it had been sufficiently financed, the Ka-92 and Ka-102 would have already been tested in the air. And our "Russian Helicopters" will have everything "by 2020 ??? It is necessary to finance KB "Kamov", and not to prescribe "sedative pills" to readers!

It is not clear how it is planned to develop such a great rate. Judging from the layout, the rotor blades are straight, is scheduled to fight on the stall of the blades ends? Interestingly, in the pipe was already purged.
