Rostec will offer its South Korea partners the option to modernise in-service Ka-32 multipurpose helicopters, the company announced on 14 October.

Helicopters of this type have been in use in South Korean since the 1990s, and Rpstec companies will offer an upgrade programme that includes equipping the helicopter with a glass cockpit, more powerful VK-2500PS-02 engines and a new firefighting system. The modernised version of the helicopter will be known as the Ka-32A11M.

The programme will be offered via Russian Helicopters’ dealer, RH Focus Corp.

Ka-32 helicopters are used by South Korean state agencies for a range of tasks, including firefighting, search and rescue operations and offshore patrol. They are also commonly used by commercial operators as flying cranes for construction and installation work.

The technical solutions in the avionics of the Ka-32A11M helicopter have already been tested on civil multipurpose helicopters, Ansat, Mi-38 and Ka-62.
