The Russian Federal Aviation Agency (Rosaviation) has issued a supplemental type certificate for the Ka-226T helicopter, allowing the machine to operate at high temperatures.
Ka-226T is a product of Russian Helicopters Holding, a subsidiary of Rostec State Corporation. The document will allow Russian Helicopters to start exporting the helicopter to countries with hot climates.
The Rosaviation-issued certificate has become a result of testing, carried out by Russian Helicopters specialists and Iran Helicopter Support and Renewal Company technicians in Iran in September 2017. The testing was done in order to prove normal functioning of the machine at outdoor temperatures up to 50 С.
