Incredible dirigibility,high power, safety and unpretentiousness — are the main qualities of the light-weight multi-target helicopter Ka-226T. As one of the best in its class, this helicopter is able to work from small-sized boards. The sizes of the fuselage with empennage do not exceed the space swept by the bearing screws.
A vast quantity of modifications thanks to the suitable modular construction allowsto use this helicopter for different issues in any conditions.
— Passenger — allows to transport up to 7 persons in comfortable conditions
— Transportational -can transfer a ton of goods inside the fuselage or on the external hanger. The exchange of the transportational cabin for the freight board is provided in case of off-gauge goods.
— Two medical modifications are provided as well: evacuational and medical-emergency.
— Police modification allows to handle the majority of issues to provide and support law and order.
— Searching-safety modification, thanks to the high precision of floating, allows to lift on board the injured easily and safely.
The flights can be executed in the day time and at night, in complex meteorological and climatic conditions, above the land with different geographic landscape, as well as in highland areas and over the sea.
The spectrum of temperatures convenient for exploitation is from -50 to +50 degrees with humidity up to 100 per cent. The blades of the bearing screws are equipped with electrothermal antiicing system.
The first flight was performed in 1997. The full-scale production started in 2002.
