Russian Helicopters develops training program for Ka-226T pilots

Russian Helicopters Holding Company (part of Rostec State Corporation) has developed a training program for the Indian pilots and technical specialists within the framework of the Russian and Indian project for the supply and localization of Ka-226T helicopter production in India.


In accordance with this program, Russian Helicopters plans to put five simulators into operation for Ka-226T pilot training.

One simulator will be set at the facilities of Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (U-UAP), where 60 Ka-226T helicopters will be produced for India. Another four simulators will be delivered to its Indian customers and will be placed at the facilities of the Air Force and Army.

“Training of foreign specialists is one of the most important stages of implementation of the Russian and Indian Ka-226T project, as we have to ensure not only the supply of helicopters, but also their high quality and professional maintenance and operation,” said Andrey Boginskiy, director general of Russian Helicopters Holding Company. “For this purpose we have already prepared and sent to our partners a training program that outlines all the areas of training of the Indian specialists.”

Moreover, all the specialists of U-UAP engaged in the Russian and Indian Ka-226T project will undergo English language courses with an in-depth study of technical vocabulary for successful interaction with Indian specialists.


Light utility Ka-226T helicopter, featuring a coaxial main rotor system with a maximum take-off weight of 3.6 tons, is capable of transporting up to one ton of payload.

Ka-226T may be equipped with a transport cabin, which allows transporting up to six people, or modules fitted with special equipment.

Improved flight performance of Ka-226T helicopter, environmental friendliness, cost effectiveness, state-of-the-art avionics suite and additional flight safety solutions make this helicopter one of the best in its class.
