KUBINKA (Moscow region) (Sputnik) — The new Russian multirole helicopter Ka-62 will receive an international certificate in 2020, Russian Helicopters CEO Andrey Boginsky said Tuesday.
"The Ka-62 helicopter will receive a flight certificate in 2019, and in 2020 — an international one," Boginsky told reporters at the Army-2017 forum.
He noted that a civil version of K-62 is currently being developed, but the Russian Defense Ministry is also interested in it.
The Ka-62 is fitted with two Ardiden 3G engines made by Turbomeca with modular design and dual-channel FADEC system that ensure high reliability, heightened ease of operation, and low fuel use. The helicopter also boasts five-bladed main rotor and enclosed multi-blade anti-torque rotor in the vertical tail fin.
