Ka-62. A photo. History. Characteristics.


In the early 90-ies evolved sad situation all over the country, which in turn led to a lack of funding normalized in various economic-potential industry. In accordance with this N. Kamov Design Bureau begins development of a new civil helicopter in-60 under the category of Ka-62. In 1990 the project headed by leading designer Furman VA and deputy chief of the Division of technical projects Gubarev BA

Ka-62 was built on the model of the Ka-60, the interior of the fuselage which was carried out in the passenger and cargo versions. The cab of the transport volume up to 6 type m2 It accommodates about ten passengers in economy class and six in the VIP-class. Also, the helicopter is capable of carrying a weight 450 kg mechanized manner. The layout of this helicopter showed for the first time in the international aviation show in the territory of the Soviet Era.


In the cockpit Ka-62 present innovative depreciation seats and dashboard, and it is based for the first time in the Russian helicopter used a liquid crystal display. It was created by a group of authors NIIAO not without Gubarev B. and B. Krigina

Virtually the entire period of 90-ies EDO staff actively demonstrate new helicopter for air shows all search options buyers. Parallel negotiations with European firms and companies about a possible joint deployment of helicopter. Ka-62 is the first air by machine JSC "Kamov" type helicopter designed for single-rotor scheme, and the tail rotor is located in the vertical tail. First of all the main slope of the helicopter did at cruising speed, reduced application rates and improving the fuel load ratio.

Thanks to cooperation with TsAGI, held together theoretical and experimental studies failed to reduce aerodynamic drag. It was also possible to use the updated profiles and the improvement of the configuration of blades solved the problem and the relative increase in propulsive efficiency. EDO and TsAGI together were able to achieve maximum aerodynamic equivalent quality.

The steering screw is multi-blade. The glider and blades of the screw on 60% are made of composite polymer materials. The glider is distinguished by perfect contours, a three-row chassis with a tail support and an impressive transport-passenger cabin. The power plant is represented by engines of a modular design (new generation), developed in the Rybinsk design bureau of motor industry. Unlike the basic military model, civilian Ka-62 has a great cruising speed, transport performance, fuel efficiency and wide door openings in the transport cab on both sides.

Ka-62 tail

Thanks to a roomy fuselage of the helicopter can be used for civilian traffic with the comfort and transport of goods, which can be placed inside and outside of the sling. High speed allows to operate the helicopter when needed emergency medical care or in emergency situations. Ka-62 can be used as an ice patrol helicopter or intelligence apparatus.

Since the beginning of EDO staff planning to promote the helicopter to other countries, its design was carried out in accordance with international safety requirements. In the event of a crash landing with the power plant is possible with a single engine. If a gross planting, construction of energy-absorbing seats and chassis to ensure the safety of the pilot and crew. Additionally protected tail rotor keel. Among other things, a helicopter equipped with fire-prevention and anti-icing systems.

An additional advantage of the helicopter is that it can be equipped for flight in normal weather permitting, and a special complex for operations in difficult and night flight conditions. If necessary, engines and Ionic in the helicopter can be abroad.

The exhibition aviamashin HeliRussia-2012 presented mock Ka-62 with the updated design of the helicopter. The appearance and layout are preserved, and the chassis and powerplant changed completely. Russian Turbo Shaft engine RD-600 replaced by French TurbomecaArdiden 3G. From Austria to be supplied and the transmission gear. Production of the new helicopter is scheduled to begin in two plants: AAK "Progress" and JSC "KumAPP." The first will be responsible for the assembly of the whole structure, and the second for the creation and development of the steering and the rotor. Prototypes manages Arsenevsky helicopter plant.

After tests in 2013 year, it was decided to hold a series of improvements. Certification will be held not earlier than 2015 years. Military pattern Ka-62 made the first prototype flight in March 2014 years. In July, it was delivered to the company "Transas" First three integrated flight and navigation system for the CCD-62-1 OP and OP-2. In the early 2016 planned first delivery of helicopters for export.

Design Ka-62

The helicopter is single-screw, with two GTEs and a three-pair chassis. It differs by mass application of CM (50% of the mass of the whole structure). The fuselage of the helicopter is characterized by an excellent aerodynamic profile. The frame is metal with longitudinal beams and frames. Sheathing consists of laminated panels of CM and CFRP. In turn, the fuselage includes four sections: a cockpit, a cargo and passenger compartment, a tail boom with vertical and horizontal flights. For the crew, it was specially convenient to glaze the cabin and install a power light kit from the KM. Doors open outwards. The seat of the pilot is located on the right side of the cabin to eliminate the possibility of duplication of controls.


Dimensions of cargo cabin up 3,3 1,75 x x m 1,3 the presence of large windows. The tail boom has ellipse cross-section through which the stabilizer installed unmanaged type. Its scope - 3 meters. The beam is installed to the vertical tail core channel for the screw. Above him the keel mounted with asymmetric profile.

Tricycle landing gear retracted, there is self-orienting the tail support with dual wheels. Retracts into the tail boom. Supports work with the lever-type nitrogen-oil shock absorbers, which are removed in the side and in front of the fuselage. Some versions can be installed ballonets.


The main four-blade propeller, fixed blades elastic. The housing sleeve created from steklougleplastika. It is detachable and the sleeve itself consists of a self-lubricated bearings of the vertical joints, torsion of the steel plates and elastic elements made of fiberglass. Whole-composite blades form a rectangle with the arrow-ending. The spar is presented in the form of double-toe profile, along which lies a rubber coating (anti-icing system). Hord blades - 0,53 m.

The power plant includes two GTE RD-600 (takeoff power - 955 kW, cruising power - 735 kW). Thought of an emergency power mode. The engines are in a common fairing, the air intakes are located above the fairing. They are also equipped with an anti-icing air system. The digital electronic system is responsible for the adjustment and complete redundancy of the engine channels. A four-stage compressor, an annular combustion chamber and a drive turbine combine the generator module. Free and drive turbines are two-stage. The launch is carried out with the help of the AI-9 auxiliary installation.


The capacity of the fuel system - 1100 l, distributed into four soft tank. They are located at the bottom of the cabin connected with booster pump. The transmission consists of a two-stage main gearbox and tail single stage. Hydraulic steering control system with rigid rods merged into a common unit, and includes loading mechanisms. The structure of the hydraulic system consists of two autonomous subsystems. The first is responsible for feeding the steering control, and the second regulates the system of cleaning the wheels.
