Design and development

A civil version, the Ka-62, was initially proposed when the Ka-60 programme was launched, but no production followed owing to development problems with the Ka-60's Saturn RD-600V engines. Instead, an agreement was signed in April 2011 to use the 1,306 kW (1,751 hp) Turbomeca Ardiden 3G turboshaft for a revised Ka-62. A five-bladed main rotor will be driven via a new transmission, while the helicopter will have a revised cabin with larger windows and new avionics. First flight of the Ka-62 was planned for May 2013, with certification in 2014. Four prototypes and an initial batch of 16 Ka-62s for the Russian Ministry of Defence were planned with another 12 ordered by South American civilian customers. It has a fantail, a 30-minute run-dry gearbox by Zoerkler, and can operate on one engine up to 9,500 ft (2,900m).Development of the Ka-62, with its western systems and powerplant, has been slow, and the helicopter made several turns over the tarmac on 28 April 2016. On 25 May 2017 it made its maiden flight proper, a 15-minute flight at a speed of up to 110 km/h.[6] Russian certification is now expected in 2018, with European EASA certification following in 2020
