A Snapshot of the Kamov – Ka-62

The Kamov Ka-62 is light high-speed multipurpose helicopter intended for commercial transportation of up to 14 passengers, for transportation of up to 2 tons cargo inside the cabin and up to 2.5 tons cargo by external sling. Kamov first unveiled the Ka-60 helicopter in 1997 and its first flight took place in 1998. The helicopter went on international display at the MAKS 1999 show held in Moscow.

The new Ka-62 helicopter incorporates the latest technologies and materials in aircraft building. It meets Russian and international flight standards (Russia’s AP-29, Europe’s CS-29 and JAR-OPS3), offshore operational requirements, by international standards for reliability, resource use, flight safety, comfort, operability, service life and repair.

The Ka-62 has the following advantages over its competitors, operating in a wide range of climate and geographic conditions:

  • Ka-62 can operate in air temperatures from –50°С to +45°С.
  • Temperatures down to –35°С without the need to heat the transmission assemblies and engines.
  • Ka-62 can fly in adverse weather conditions, and known icing conditions.
  • Ka-62 can be operated from an airbase, oil platform or unprepared ground.
  • Ka-62 does not need to be stored in a hangar.
