Help Agency: “The Ka-226T lightweight multi-purpose helicopter developed by Kamov is serially manufactured at KumAPP. It is built on the coaxial pattern of rotors and has excellent handling and power supply. Ka-226T is equipped with modern flight-navigation equipment, can easily maneuver in dense urban high-rise buildings and in the mountains. The absence of a tail rotor and compact dimensions make it possible to use small landing pads. Ka-226T has a low noise level and meets the most modern environmental requirements. It has a removable transport module that allows you to change the functionality of the helicopter in a short time. "
