In one of the first business, deals struck at Aero India 2019, the Russian Helicopters Holding Company (a part of State Corporation Rostec) and a number of Indian companies signed Memorandums of Understanding. The parties agreed to explore the production of a number of assemblies and components for Ka-226T helicopter in India.

The Indian companies that signed the agreements were Elcom, Valdel Advanced Technologies, Dynamatic Technologies, Integrated Helicopter Services and Bharat Forge, covering assemblies such as fuselage, blades, radiostation and landing gear.

“We have launched a new stage of Ka-226T project: identifying the chain of manufacturers among the Indian companies. I am positive that the agreements reached today will result in a long-term mutually beneficial cooperation at a later stage when the production of Ka-226T is transferred to the customer’s territory”, noted Andrey Boginskiy, Director General of Russian Helicopters Holding Company following the signing. 

The Ka-226T helicopter programme provides for the delivery of 60 aircraft assembled in Russia and the production of 140 units in India. “I am sure that the rotorcraft assembled in India will be in high demand in this country as well as in the third markets. In particular, we intend to take part in a bid for the delivery of 111 Naval Utility Helicopters for the Indian Navy,” said Victor Kladov from Rostec.

Light utility helicopter Ka-226T features coaxial main rotor system, maximum take-off weight of 3.6 tons and is capable of transporting up to 1 ton of payload.
