Russian high-speed helicopter will make the first flight in 2019

32
A prototype of the Russian prospective high-speed combat helicopter developed by Russian Helicopters (part of Rostec State Corporation) in the interests of the Russian Defense Ministry will make its first flight in 2019. This was announced by the head of "Rostec" Sergey Chemezov, reports TASS.


Russian high-speed helicopter will make the first flight in 2019


Next year we will continue development work. We have rather big achievements. The first flight tests of an experimental helicopter can take place during the 2019 of the year or closer to its end.
- said Chemezov.

He clarified that the speed of the new helicopter will exceed 400 km / h.

As previously reported, the Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant, part of the Russian Helicopters holding, is working to create a promising combat helicopter for the Ministry of Defense. A number of technological solutions in this project have already been tested on production models. According to the holding, for this helicopter specialists of the cost centers have developed a revolutionary design of the main rotor blade. It was also reported that the engine for a high-speed helicopter, which received the VK-2500М index, can be created in one year if there is an order.

The concept of a high-speed helicopter will be presented this fall

      Super-fast helicopter Ka-90
      The first model of this helicopter was presented at the HeliRasha-2008 international exhibition of the helicopter industry, then it was renamed from Ka-100 to Ka-90. The completely new concept of the helicopter allows for vertical take-off and landing, and, having dispersed to 400 km / h, the blades will independently fold into a special casing on the rear of the helicopter. In this position of the screws, the maximum speed will develop - 700-800 km / h. Take-off weight will be 10,5-11,5 tons, it will also be possible to transport 24 people or about 4 tons of cargo.

        Question to experts. The concept of KA-90 requires clarification. It is not clear how the further flight will be carried out after folding the blades? The wing is not visible in the Ka-90 picture, due to which will the lifting force be organized? And the hull itself is also not a carrier. Now, if only the blades fold back into the casing forming a triangular wing, but this is not visible in the picture winked

            In general, all this is similar to the contests of schoolchildren and visionaries - to draw concepts from the ceiling without thinking about physical processes. But it’s terrible that adult uncles do all this

      In Russia there is no development of a convertiplane, except for drones, and secondly, a helicopter is cheaper.

        We have designed turnkey planes. But they turned out to be very problematic in the operation of machines. And they were abandoned

      The tiltrotor, for all its impressiveness, alas, has one huge drawback that does not allow it to develop, these are just its screws.
      Tiltrotor rotors have a large diameter and in the cruising position allow you to develop speed above the helicopter, but at the same time create a huge frontal resistance to the car. The whole idea rests on this.
      On the one hand, the first success in comparison with a turntable is precisely in terms of speed, and on the other, a dead end in perspective.
      you can make a tiltrotor even faster, but it will require heavy-duty engines and, I'm afraid, all the free space in it will take fuel.
      A helicopter in which the rotor is turned sideways to the direction of motion has more prospects.

        I'm afraid all these futuristic models, like yesterday's tiltrotor, no, the day before yesterday. You can do better, easier, faster, cheaper. You just have to be smart.

      I understand that for the concept of high-speed helicopter it is not necessary to develop fundamentally new units such as a rotary power plant. I don’t know what will be realized, but one of the concepts of a high-speed helicopter is that the rotor is deprived of the swashplate, the blades are made short and wide, and the horizontal flight is carried out by the tail rotor. That is, the construction is simplified, as it were, and there is nothing fundamentally new for our industry in it.
      Now Mily flies a laboratory at a speed of 350-560 km / h, so it generally does not differ much from the classical scheme. And in the near future, 500 km / h is planned, which is comparable to the speed of Osprey.

        If the authors of the comments thought that with such propulsors an increase in speed is associated with an increase in load, this is abstractly said for all components and mechanisms, then the problem of a cardinal decrease in flight safety becomes obvious. Then the statements would be in a different tone.

    The view from this helicopter, of course, is very decent, let's hope that the tests will be successful and without delay. Such high-speed helicopters are very necessary for us in the army.

    The only question is whether its creation is an end in itself, or is there a specific task for it? Are we not copying those countries that create something following the Schaub Bulo principle, and not for a specific purpose?

    It was also reported that the engine for a high-speed helicopter, which received the VK-2500M index, can be created in one year if an order is available.
    So this is also no engine ?! That is, this is what this helicopter flies on.
    Well then, this is apparently a long story ... Rather, this material is for the report on the work done, and that would not reduce the flow of funds. It is not the first year that it has been prototyped at exhibitions.
