Russian Helicopters (part of State Corporation Rostec) is showcasing the latest Russian-made commercial and military helicopters.
“India is a key market for the Russian helicopter-building industry, and the largest operator of Russian-made helicopters in the region,” said Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev, who is heading the State Corporation Rostec delegation. “We are planning to develop multilateral cooperation and are pleased to be able to showcase our new projects at this exhibition. In particular, the Ka-226T, which boasts a wealth of advantageous features.”OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA
The Ka-226T is a light, twin-engine multirole, coaxial helicopter. It underwent testing in India during the helicopter tender cancelled by the Indian authorities last year. The helicopter easily out-performed competitors produced by Western companies during flights in India’s hot climate and mountainous areas.
The Ka-226T with Turbomeca Arrius 2G1 engines can be used in search-and-rescue, patrol or landing operations. Its ease of handling and latest avionics mean that this helicopter is easy to manoeuvre in mountainous areas or built-up urban centres.
The absence of a tail rotor and its compact design mean that the Ka-226T can land even on small sites. The Ka-226T can be operated by India’s law enforcement and civilian agencies. Russian Helicopters is proposing to establish production of this model in India.
