Russian Helicopters presents new Ka-226T model at MAKS-2021

Zhukovsky, Russia, JSC Russian Helicopters has presented the Ka-226T Climber helicopter at the MAKS-2021 International Aviation and Space Salon.

The new model is the latest variant in the Ka-226 family. Visitors to the international air show were able to see the prototype due to conduct a series of test flights this autumn.

The Ka-226T Climber is ideal for flying in mountainous areas. Its coaxial rotors allow for easy control even at the highest altitudes with rarefied air. It boasts high resistance to strong side winds, and high rate of climb, as well as easy take-off and landing at high-altitude sites.

It also performs well in flights over water, and can take off and land on the deck of even a small seagoing vessel. With low vibration levels, the Ka-226T Climber is a light helicopter which is easy to control. Capable of taking off from, and landing on, small areas (for instance, in a city), it offers highly stable hovering even during operation with external loads, and can be safely boarded while the rotors are turning.
