Ka-226T production begins

Ka-226TThe Kamov Ka-226T certification, which was completed this spring, when the IAC Aviation Registry released Supplementary Certificate ST225-Ka-226/OGI-04 on 30 March 2015, ensured the beginning of the full-rate production and delivery of the type to its launch customers. The key difference between the Ka-226T and earlier-built Ka-226 lies in use of more powerful Turbomeca Arrius 2G1 engines, the advanced VR-226N main gearbox and more sophisticated avionics, which allowed a hefty increase in the helicopter's flight and operational characteristics.
