Soviet Helicopter Ka 26

Posted on October 22, 2012 by team

The Kamov Ka-26 is a Soviet light utility helicopter with co-axial rotors. The Ka-26 entered production in 1966. 850 have been built.They were used in various sectors of economy but some people associate them with the Soviet traffic police. Yes, orange and blue Kamov helicopters used to patrol Soviet roads.

Today it’s a luck to see a Ka-26 in the air, Mi-2 helicopters are far more frequently seen.

These helicopters are now based at the airfield “Aerograd Mozhaisky”, Moscow.

It is far from new.

    The KA 26 looks like science fiction movie prop from 1965.

    New variants are still in production with turboprop engines. The one above does have two radial engines similar to the one in a Yak-52 however there are slight differences. The translation is awkward in places. The engine uses compressed air to start and the “scrolling handle” is used to turn the engine over prior to start to elevate any collected oil in the lower cylinders.

    More than 30 great Ka-26 are fly in Hungary.They are the heart of nowdays Hungarian agriculutural aviation. The other part of hungarian agricultural aviation is the agricultural planes. A most of them is Antonov An-2 but there is Z-37 Cmelak,and
    Z-137T turbo cmelak too. The cmelak and the turbo cmelak are made in czehslovakia. The pilots really like the AN-2. An-2 is a very good and reliable plane.
    And please watch these Hungarian Ka-26 videos.
    The good pilots can do really tight turns with these helicopters.
