Russian Helicopters’ Progress Arsenyev Aviation Company is preparing the flight model of the Ka-62 multirole helicopter for preliminary flight tests.

As part of the preparation, body structures of the anti-torque rotor and tail group have been improved, and a typical design transmission has been installed. The preliminary test phase for Ka-62 certification will start by the end of 2018.

To date, three prototypes of the Ka-62 have been built. The first helicopter will be exposed to vibration frequency tests in mid-July 2018 to verify the efficiency of new improvements. If needed, additional improvements will be made in the body structures of the anti-torque rotor and the tail group of all three flight models of helicopter.

The second flight model has been delivered to the test checks and electrical systems workshop. Its on-board system will be tested in a computer-simulated environment and recalibrated. The third flight model of this vehicle will be tested soon thereafter.
