The Ulan-Ude Aviation Plant (U-UAZ) of the Russian Helicopters holding completed the preparation of the fuselage assembly line for the Ka-226T light helicopter. Two fuselages have already been manufactured, which will be handed over for testing the accident resistance of the fuel system at the end of November.

According to the press service of the Russian Helicopters holding, the head of the Russian Ministry of Industry and Trade Denis Manturov got acquainted with the operation of the new equipment. By the end of the year, U-UAZ will assemble several new stands and assemblies of this helicopter for static, dynamic and life tests. Now specialists are finishing assembling stands for testing bird resistance and testing the windshield cleaning system.

As the managing director of U-UAZ Leonid Belykh noted, in parallel with the manufacture of test benches, prototypes of the Ka-226T helicopter are being created. Flights are scheduled for the first half of 2021.

Thousands of items of equipment have already been produced for the new helicopter: from small templates to large assembly slipways. In September, the laying of the bottom of the cockpit, the middle and central fuselage compartments, tail booms and empennage in the general assembly slipway made at the plant began. By the end of the year, all technical documentation will be handed over to the customer - the Indian Ministry of Defense.
