Russian Helicopters (part of State Corporation Rostec) announces that it has received Additional Type Certification from the Interstate Aviation Committee’s Aviation Register (IAC AR) for the light multirole Ka-226T helicopter. Receiving additional certification opens up opportunities for the delivery and operation of the basic model of this helicopter.
‘Certification of the Ka-226T is the result of the great efforts made by the aircraft designers and producers,’ said Russian Helicopters CEO Alexander Mikheev. ‘I am confident that the Ka-226T will find its niche on the light helicopter market.’
The Ka-226T was developed by Kamov design bureau and is a development in the Ka-26, Ka-126, and Ka-226 light helicopter series. These helicopters were produced by Kumertau Aviation Production Enterprise. Special models of the Ka-226 are in service with the Russian armed forces and are still produced. The Ka-226T will also be produced at Kumertau Aviation Production Enterprise.
