"By assembling AW189 helicopters will connect Kazan Helicopter Plant

As the web resource "" 3 April 2017 years to assemble medium helicopters AgustaWestland AW189 Italian manufacturer Leonardo Heliciopters attend Kazan Helicopter Plant (KHP, is a holding company "Helicopters of Russia"). This is stated in the notes to the financial statements for the KHP 2016 year. "

And how are things with our Ka-62, not inferior to the level of comfort Italian AW189?

Change the flea! 1


That's how!

 “The Ka-62 helicopter has not yet been put into mass production, despite the fact that this machine is a regular participant in various exhibitions and aircraft salons.

Russian officials and management holding company "Helicopters of Russia" have repeatedly stated the imminent start of mass production of Ka-62, and the great interest in this machine from overseas customers. However, year-on-year release of this machine is delayed: recently it became known that the helicopter certification transferred to 2017 years "(Ka-62: the history of creation, description MilitaryArms.).


Completion protracted. Ka-62

“The military helicopter Ka-60 may appear after 2016. This was stated by the Deputy Minister of Industry and Trade of Russia Yuri Slyusar. According to him, in late 2015 - early 2016, it is planned to receive a type certificate for the Ka-62.

After that, the Russian Defense Ministry will decide on the shape of a military version of the helicopter, which will receive the index Ka-60, told the publication ... »(Topwar).

In assembling the expensive AW-189 helicopter, the government of the Russian Federation is using the Kazan Helicopter Plant, and the serial production of our safer and more unpretentious Ka-62, which was created for the harsh conditions of Russia, is periodically postponed to the start of production. If I understand this arithmetic correctly, then the Kamovsky Ka-62 from the team of S. Chemezov after the Italian "from the master's table" remains small crumbs. But in a businesslike way, the State is much more profitable than the Ka-62 instead of the Italian, which, among other things, is much cheaper, although the "effective" managers forced the Kamovites to put expensive French engines on the Ka-62 instead of their RD-600, and the Austrian gearbox, again instead of your own!


26.05.2009 / Interfax-AVN

The base engine for the military helicopter Ka-60 and its civilian counterpart, the Ka-62 600 is RD-increased power, according to "Interfax-AVN" Program Director Ka-60 / 62 company "Helicopters of Russia" Alexey Chizhikov.

"In the future, more powerful RD-600 will be produced as the engine of the second series," - A.Chizhikov said.

According to him, the United Engine Corporation (UEC) has developed a plan to increase the power of the RD-600 from 1300 hp. up to approximately 1600 hp Production: NPO Saturn OJSC

"Our correspondent talks to Chapter designer V.G.Kryginym" Very important details:.. Are provided with take-off and landing with one engine (RD-600V); energy-absorbing landing gear and seats design allows the pilot and passengers to avoid injuries in the event of a rough landing, steering screw in the keel is protected from accidental damage. The machine is equipped with effective anti-icing and fire-prevention systems.

 But the main advantage, of course, is that the cruising speed at which the helicopter flies without time limit is very high. The helicopter is equipped with the most modern engines of modular design, developed by Rybinsky design bureau “Saturn”.

Its uniqueness is that it can be dismantled into its individual parts and reassemble all 10 keys. In the event of failure of one of them, it can be replaced directly in the open field, and not to change the whole engine. "

The reason when a very good engine, created specifically for this helicopter, is changed to an imported one is UNLIMITED, which is a logical consequence of impunity: "Putin does not give up his own!"  

I want to express my vision to the heads of Kazan Helicopters for this screwdriver assembly of the imported apparatus: in my opinion, due to the high cost of future AW189s, the demand, it seems to me, will be piecemeal, which then willy-nilly will force them to think about an independent rotorcraft project according to the Ka-22 scheme with main rotors from "Ansat" in order to have more popular products in the series. In addition, there is a possibility of replacing two imported engines at Ansat - one domestic for the main rotor and then its carrying capacity will be comparable to the Mi-8T, i.e. in demand, but it will fly, figuratively speaking, with "the same TV2-117" and at a much higher speed, i.e. will be much more productive! Today it is most likely that the weakest engine for such a rotorcraft available in Russia = 2000hp. So much the better, the more power remains on the propellers, much needed to accelerate takeoff speed. In addition, it will be more comfortable to steer at airports with wing pulling propellers, when in this mode dust rises from the main rotor throughout the airport.


I am also very interested in why our soldiers continue to be parachuted from tailed Mi-8 helicopters, although they have long been ready to replace them - these are more power-equipped, more compact, more maneuverable and, most importantly, safer, and therefore more guaranteed for success: coaxial Ka-32 -10AG. The troopers always land for help, where their comrades are in difficulty, so the paratroopers are already excited at the time of landing, and then the tail rotor is annoying! If the designers of the cost center do not understand this and by hook or by crook they are pushing their projects into the series, then the Commander-in-Chief of the Aerospace Forces V. Bondarev must stand up with a wall against outdated technology, which clearly does not correspond to the spirit of the times! 

Why should the pilots and paratroopers who protect us all be responsible for the inertia of the cost center designers and the "effective" managers from "Russian Helicopters" who support them with their safety ??? 

And would it be very interesting to know about the fate of the Ka-102 longitudinal high-speed helicopter project with a capacity of 80 - 90 seats? If the modernization of the Ka-92 "Lamprey" is demanded by the IMF today, then the Ka-102 is absolutely silent, as if we do not have such a project. But this is a project of a real modern helicopter, which is in great demand not only for offshore flights, but also for the same army aviation in the rapid transfer of troops and equipment; to provide first aid to those in distress. For the entire national economy of our big country!

Sergei Mikheyev, "a helicopter with a rigid rotor to" airplane "speeds.

According to our calculations, the Ka-102 can have speeds of up to 500 km / h. In this case, it will carry up to 80-90 passengers, with takeoff weight of about 30 t with compact dimensions of a coaxial helicopter is good for transportation of relatively small number of passengers and cargo. (In our case - to 30 people). A longitudinal scheme allows a longer fuselage, wherein comfortably accommodate a much larger number of passengers.

Power plant Ka-102 also be uniform - it will have two gas turbine engine which, through the transmission drives the rotation of the two rotors and the two pulling propellers (like we have already been implemented for half a century ago, the famous rotorcraft Ka-22, which however, carried by the transverse scheme could fly at speeds 350 km / h).


And like them, our sworn partners?

They also had stagnation, but due to the lack of such brilliant designers as the Russian Sergey Viktorovich Mikheev, but today they are diligently, sparing no finances, catching up with modern coaxial helicopters. Needless to say, things are not going well for them so far, but there is progress! This is understandable - only people who do not work have no progress. This is what the Chemezov team actually forces our Kamovites to do, deliberately not financing the Ka-102 and Ka-32-10AG projects under the guise of good excuses such as lack of money or "no" customers, giving our enemies a winning time for modern helicopters.



And our enemies are already besieged on all sides, and in the Far East the same!

This is already a cry from the heart of Sergey Viktorovich Mikheev, General Designer of JSC Kamov.


"Russia is dangerously lagging behind the USA in high-speed helicopter.

21.04.2017/500/XNUMX The state should support the development of high-speed helicopters capable of flying at speeds of XNUMX km / h and higher, otherwise Russia will lag behind the United States in this matter, said Sergey Mikheev, General Designer of Kamov helicopters.

"For a number of Americans, we are behind the fighting programs. This also applies to helicopters, "- said Mikheyev at a meeting of the Expert Council on aviation industry in the State Duma Committee on Economic Policy.

He explained that the program adopted by the arms of the United States provides that "after 2025, all helicopters must fly at a speed of more than 500 km / h."


According to Mikheev, the development of high-speed helicopter - "this is a fundamental task of the state." He noted that to solve it is important to strengthen the role of chief designers of helicopters.

Earlier it was reported that Russia has stopped government funding of the project of creation of high-speed helicopter, able to reach speeds of 450-500 km / h. This happened due to the fact that the project has been divided into two programs: the perspective of commercial helicopters and high-speed helicopter.

Today, helicopters are flying at an average speed 200-300 km / h. Increased speed will be achieved, thanks to a more powerful power plant and the improvement of the aerodynamic design of helicopters "(Political Kaleidoscope).


Vitalii Belyaev

Well, for the nonsense, well, the helicopter can not fly at a speed of 500 km / h, physics does not allow, the receding blade will be fixed relative to the air, and the coming to the supersonic will come out)))

Vladimir, despite your considerable knowledge, and, at first glance, a logical conclusion, but ... you inattentively studied a very good and topical article! Carefully read the far-sighted motto of the brilliant aircraft designer of rotary-wing aircraft Sergei Mikheev under the photo of the high-speed "car" Ka-102:
"Sergei Mikheev:" on a helicopter with a rigid rotor to "airplane" speeds! "
Not an ordinary, flexible, fiberglass blade of the current helicopters, but, a rigid, shortened, metal structure (the wing of a small chord), which can successfully solve this problem.
By the way, about 4-5 years ago, in the magazine Popular Mechanics, an article was published on the promising high-speed helicopters of tomorrow, in which S. Mikheev spoke in sufficient detail about the Ka-92, and the Ka-102, and the decision of many problems.
Also, for many years I have been observing the lobbying blocking of the promotion of the Ka-226 "Seryoga" national-economic helicopter, and 2-3x Local helicopter operator of the talented group of the Kamov plant in Kumertau (Bashkiria) and KB "Rotor": Rotorfly R-30 (-33)

It remains to be hoped that this cry from the heart will reach, if not the management of Russian Helicopters, then someone else who can influence the situation ... What is very valuable in the article: it is shown that the point is not in the absence of promising developments - they are, and we must pray for their fate!

You just have to recognize the Donbas !!! What would our Portner led sanctions on all industries and abolished the so-called cooperation and to put it simply cuts and kickbacks !! And it is better to do the president navlnogo then the country wakes ............. perfect order and the country that does not wake !! wakes partnership and cooperation with the civilized world !!!

It is Navalny who is able to understand the prospects of helicopter construction, how much and where to steal, and how many children in each city should be released "to the barricades" to ensure a civil position!
