It will be the major exhibit at the stand, and will be seen from a distance of over 500 meters from different angles. The total area of the stand will be 450 sq m.

"For the guests from various regions and countries, Ka-62 will become a spectacular example of the scientific, technical and production power of the Primorsk Territory. This helicopter demonstrates the potential of Progress in manufacturing hi-tech products designed for both military and civil use," says Andrei Boginsky, the CEO of Russian Helicopters. "We lay hopes on this state-of-the-art and hi-tech model. I am confident that all potential users will soon be able to fully appreciate all of the advantages of Ka-62."

Ka-62 helicopter is designed for the passenger carriage, off-shore works, emergency medical services, search and rescue, conveyance of cargo inside the cabin and as suspended load, patrolling and environmental monitoring. The high operating ceiling and high power loading of its engines enable Ka-62 to perform the search-and-rescue and evacuation works in mountainous areas.

Its airframe stands out with perfect aerodynamic lines, high capacity of the cargo and passenger cabin, the tricycle landing gear with tail support, and large widows which simultaneously serve as emergency exits. Other distinguishing features include the classical scheme with a multibladed tail rotor in the vertical tailfin protected against incidental damages. Moreover, Ka-62 stands out with a low noise level.

Ka-62 is the first helicopter ever in the history of the global helicopter industry equipped with the system for general helicopter equipment control, as well as an integrated open-architecture flight management system built to the principle of 'glass cockpit'. One or two crewmembers can use it for visual and instrument day/night flying in various geographical and climatic conditions.
