Russian-Iranian tests of the Ka-226T begin

54
Russian Helicopters Holding announces that joint Ka-226T multi-purpose helicopter tests with Iranian partners are starting. The main purpose of the joint test with the Iranian company Iran Helicopters Support and Renewal Company consists in determining the flight characteristics of a Russian helicopter in a hot and dry climate.

Tests with the Iranian company will be held on the basis of a memorandum of understanding signed between Moscow and Tehran about three months ago on issues of civil and military-technical cooperation. It is known that the manufacturer has already sent one of the Ka-226T helicopters to Iran, where the test phase began.

Russian-Iranian tests of the Ka-226T begin


The tests will continue until September of this year, and a joint conference will be held on their results, during which they will report on the results of operating Russian multi-purpose helicopters under temperature conditions up to 50 Celsius.

Press office Russian Helicopters reminds that the Ka-226T is equipped with Turbomeca's two Arrius 2G1 engines with an electronic-digital control system (FADEC).

From the release:
Power unit in 580 hp provides a continued take-off or safe landing in the event of a single engine failure. The Ka-226T helicopter is built according to a modular scheme and is offered in various targeted modifications: from passenger to search and rescue.

          helicopter of course super !! good but the pilot !!!! negative .... in my opinion, just an air bully. this is clearly not a test. the pilot simply decided to demonstrate his “dare”. In short, the pilot is an idiot and any professional pilot agrees with this IMHO

          You can go shopping at OBI or Leroy Merlin, you can buy Chinese goods there and the French can pay for them. This is patriotic.
          But to buy components in France for equipment that will be produced in Russia which will then be sold to a third country and profit will remain in Russia is not patriotic.
          Where is the logic?

              In order for sales of such birds to go, the authorities need to strictly ban purchases of any Robins and others like them in Russia. Now there are many experts who, with calculations and arguments, will begin to convince me that this is impossible and not profitable. BUT! I DO NOT BELIEVE! There would be a will. Under comrade Stalin, such a decision would be welcomed without any discussion in all spheres and circles.

            The assembly and production of these engines must be localized in Russia to such an extent that dependence on the French disappears over time. Only under such conditions should they cooperate after the story with their Misral.

              that is, you think that the world division of labor is not that logic? Have you ever thought that it is not possible to own all the technologies? what’s behind your populist slogans “we will do everything in Russia” as a rule (with a few exceptions) or we will do everything badly in Russia or we won’t do it at all and we’ll drank the allocated money. ? will you buy goods of inadequate quality if you can buy the best and at about the same money? I remember how in the USSR they shouted, we will fly faster than everyone and above everyone. but in practice it’s not very long and expensive to maintain. if the economy is not able to pull these technologies, then their development is just nonsense. there is an opportunity to buy cheaply and angrily - buy. and as for the sanctions, I’ll say only one thing, there is no second in Russia loudly. diplomats should work. and in general, everyone should try to do their job. sanctions are a clear jamb of diplomats and it is not clear why this jamb should be decided by industrialists.

                didn’t you think that the customer is not interested in the ka266 with the Russian engine because it is objectively worse?
                Thinking about this is what needs to be developed. By the way, a state corporation was created for this. Of course, apparently, it does not do without the “sawflies”, since there is no result in this direction.
                if the economy is not able to pull these technologies, then their development is just nonsense. there is an opportunity to buy cheaply and angrily - buy.

                You are raving, dear. And with such nonsense under the slogans of Gaidar and his associates, we have come to the point that the nails were bought by Chinese, and at the same time the whole country was induced by managers (hucksters) and lawyers. And there was no one to twist the nuts.
                For this, economists (not balobols) are obliged to work hard so that the economy "pulls" these and other high technologies. And the division of labor, dear, should be reasonable, and benefit not only traders, but also the development of industry, and not lead the country into a dead end.

                  how many economists don’t get new technologies in the country from this will not come out :) by the way, the Gaidar is an economist :). and about nails and bolts which are 2 times cheaper in China and most importantly better, please tell me if you personally buy a domestic one that is frank guano or Chinese which is better and 2 times cheaper? that’s the whole economy. and remember the geographical division of labor, there is NO alternative!

                    Remember YOU that the geography of our country is large enough so that this division would be its own - domestic. Then it will be all (or almost all) of their own, reliable and not expensive. It just needs to be seriously dealt with, and not China, to hope.

    If there are Western-made components, then again, as with the Superjet, they will not be allowed to export to Iran under pain of breaking up cooperation (the Siemens example is before everyone's eyes), while they themselves will sell the same products freely and at ease. Alas, international law serves those who write it for themselves. And for now, it's not us.

      Again, this contract is likely to “break off” as in the case of Superjets, and we (Russia) ourselves are contributing to this by approving US sanctions against other countries, as we recently approved sanctions against the DPRK people.
      KA-226 in tests in Iran


      At the expense of delivering our Superjets to Iran, in general, Europeans and Americans are delivering billions of dollars of airplanes to Iran (to Iran), but we cannot because we use Western avionics and engines and of course not Boeing and Airbus don’t want to “produce” competitors by banning their governments are our supplies there.
      Won't take off
      Why the multibillion-dollar Russian deal with Iran breaks down
      Producer Superjet 100 is waiting for permission to supply aircraft to Iran from OFAC's US Office of Foreign Assets Control, part of the US Treasury Department
      The US Department of the Treasury OFAC is a key entity that monitors compliance with sanctions, including against Cuba, Iran, North Korea and other countries. Lawyer of the business fair bureau Anton Sonichev explains that the supply of aircraft without OFAC approval threatens to aggravate the foreign policy situation and worsen diplomatic relations between the countries. In addition, the violator of the sanctions prohibitions may be fined.
      The share of imports in the supply of materials and goods for SSJ100 for nine months of 2016 amounted to 72 percent, taking into account engines, which account for about 34 percent of material costs in the structure of the aircraft prime cost, according to the financial report of Sukhoi Civil Aircraft.
      Superjet uses a number of key production systems of American corporations: Hamilton Sundstrand - avionics, Goodrich Corporation - wheel brakes and brake control, Parker - hydraulic system, Honeywell - auxiliary power unit.

      Honestly, it’s just a SHAME for such a great aviation power as ours.

      Develop a 10-year engine without any problems, invest in production ... the same with electronics. Only this must be done in parallel and with an eye on world analogues. And the financial system in the country should be these 10-15 years with stable demand for airline tickets (growing preferably) without sharp fluctuations in the exchange rate.
