The multi-target medium helicopter Ka-32A11BC, as a leader in its class, is intended to perform the vast spectrum of issues, which are as follows:
— Goods transportation inside the fuselage and on the external hanger;
— Evacuation of wounded and injured people;
— High-altitude installation works;
— Searching-safety operations;
— Support in handling special operations.
Thanks to the coaxial scheme with two turboshaft engines and without steering screw, the helicopter gets high power despite of its compacted size. It allows the helicopter to work effectively in any conditions such as city construction or a highland woody area.
Having inherited the best qualities from the naval Ka-27ПС, on which grounds it was designed, Ka-32A11BC can work in the conditions of high humidity and easily bears the influence of the hostile maritime environment and it can land on the vessels’ decks and belly boards.
This helicopter faces the international safety standards and is subject to airworthiness standards НЛГВ32.29 and FAR-29 in transport categories A and B to accomplish visual flights and instrument flying, in the day time and at night, in simple and complex meteorological conditions over the land and the sea. The helicopter is equipped with antiicing system for engines and blades.
Following the certification in Canada in 1998 Ka-32A11BC got the modification denotation «BC» from British Columbia.
It is successfully used in Austria, Azerbaijan, Brazil, Indonesia, Spain, Canada, Kazakhstan, China, Portugal, Russia, Switzerland, South Korea and Japan.
The flying resorce of 32 000 hours allows the helicopter to bear low operational expenses.
