The Ka-32 helicopter is the development of Ka-PC designed specifically for civilian use, with the successful operation of the Ka-25 and Ka-27 from the deck of the ship. Initially, as the main purpose of the helicopter intended to be used for reconnaissance of ice conditions in extreme Arctic conditions, day and night, but later the helicopter was decided to develop a multi-purpose all-weather use; for search and rescue operations, transportation, cranes for installation of equipment, hauling packages of valuable wood in the absence of roads, police and other purposes.
The helicopter was decided to equip the perfect flight-navigation complex with on-Board computer, search radar and special equipment, de-icing systems. When performing ice reconnaissance must have a maximum flight time of 4.5 h, and during transportation and crane work was required lifting capacity 4T in the cabin and 5C on the external sling, range from 3T cargo in the cabin 300km, cruising speed 220-230km/H.
The lack of helicopter armament and search and anti-submarine equipment and associated systems are allowed to use the internal volume to accommodate the fuel tanks and various equipment for civilian use and increased capacity of the helicopter.
The beginning of the development of the Ka-32 helicopter should be taken as Ka-27, 1969, and the first flight General experimental helicopter – December 24, 1973 (test pilot I. E. Erusin), first flight serial Ka-32 helicopter took place in 1980.
This created more than 20 years ago, the machine has been successfully used on many continents and in all climatic zones. The fact that it in 1983 and 1985 was set seven world records, including: the maximum height of the flight 8520 m altitude with a commercial cargo 1000 kg – 7305 m, with a load of 2000 kg – 6400 meters and climb rate speaks for itself.
The liquidation of the accident at Chernobyl in 1986, the helicopter of this type conducted dosimetry exploration, dropping sensors to measure the level of physical radiation fields from a height of 250 meters in the ventilation pipe emergency unit of the NPP. These helicopters successfully operate in Canada, Malaysia, Algeria, Brazil, Switzerland, Korea and other countries. Long-standing cooperation with the Corporation LG, led to the fact that at the moment, Park Ka-32 helicopters on the border, forestry and fire protection South Korea is more than 40 units.
The coaxial-rotor helicopters have a number of advantages over helicopters classical scheme, due to the peculiarities of composition – the lack of a tail rotor.
The lack of tail rotor leads to a significant reduction of overall dimensions of the helicopter, as well as to reduce its weight, simplifies the design of directional control. In addition, the tail rotor uses 10-12% engine power. In the coaxial scheme this power is used to create a lifting force, that is, the power coaxial-rotor helicopter 10-12% higher than similar helicopter classical scheme. Control forces and moments coaxial-rotor helicopters are created for coaxial rotors, which determines their high controllability and maneuverability, and the lack of steering screw – low limits, especially at low speeds. So the angular speed at the hovering helicopter Mi – 8 – 12 s, Mi-24 – 30 sec, and Ka-32 helicopters do not have such restrictions.
The advantage of coaxial-rotor helicopters are particularly pronounced in flight operations with external cargo suspension, especially when performing construction works, maintenance of drilling rigs, loading and unloading of ships with RAID, as well as when performing various search and rescue operations.
The apparent complexity of construction, more than compensated for by its performance. Unfortunately, it is extremely difficult in practical terms to designate this feature, as maneuverability. In this category are worthy opponents, he simply does not exist. Its dimensions are defined by the area washed by the propeller – less than 16 meters. Due to the lack of tail rotor in cramped conditions exclude the possibility of an accident with damage, but according to statistics it is up to 27 percent of all accidents. The design of the Ka-32 can be used in all weather conditions, day and night on unprepared airfields and sites, as well as from ships and offshore drilling rigs. The folding blades reduces occupied by helicopter volume 5 times, which greatly reduces the area of the hangars. This is particularly important for sea-based.
The basic systems redundancy ensures high safety of any flight. Twin-engine power unit allows you to continue level flight, perform a safe landing, landing in the area takeoff abort or continue the takeoff weight 11000 kg For emergency landing and the subsequent escape of a helicopter after landing on the water are installed on the helicopter baloney.
It does not guarantee greater comfort for 13 passengers (or 9 people in the sanitary version), its quite a small salon, but can lift and carry up to five tons of oversized cargo on the external load. Note that when the weight 6600 kg, lift and take -5000 kg is not capable of any other helicopter.
Due to the coaxial arrangement of the screws, it limits lateral and wind is 10 m/s (Mi-8T: associated – 3 m/s, right – 5 m/s, left – 8 m/s, which is associated with loss of control). In addition, the excess of this limit does not lead to loss of control, as the helicopter itself unfolds against the wind. This is especially important when flying in the mountains with frequent changes of direction and force of wind, since Ka-32 can fly, to sit and to work when the wind is up to 20 meters per second, which is unattainable for anybody else.
The presence of de-icing system guarantees the successful execution of tasks in conditions of rain, snow, fog, icing, to a temperature of minus 23 degrees C, in limited circumstances, when the storm winds at high altitudes and where the required high accuracy. Start the engines of the helicopter does not require stationary airfield equipment and is provided to an altitude of 3000 meters in the range of ambient temperatures from minus 40 to + 40 deg C
The Ka-32 helicopters are equipped with powerful SAU, allowing you to perform various types of operations in automatic mode: hover over land and water, enroute flight, return to any point and landing on different trajectories. When installing a fire protection system (depending on version), he is able to fight fires, pouring out at a time from 3 to 5 tons of water. When equipped with water gun, the helicopter is able to extinguish spot foci of combustion. Moreover, water is drawn from open water to hover over them. Emergency winch allows, without landing, bring it on Board cargo weighing up to 300 kilograms.
Continuously working on improving the design of the helicopter and expand its functionality. Followed by modernization, replacement engines and carrier system, the weight of lifted load will increase to 7 tons.
At the moment, around the world, with all the air saturation of the market, only the Kamov design Bureau in Russia creates a coaxial-rotor helicopters. The American aircraft company Sikorsky tried to create a similar helicopter, but technical difficulties have not been overcome, and further experimental samples is not gone. Serial production of the whole range of helicopters by the Federal state unitary Kumertau aviation production enterprise. (Formerly producing Ka-26, and now a further version of the Ka-226).
