    The Ka-60 (62 civilian version) is the first Kamov helicopter with tail rotor. Ka-62 helicopter has a single-rotor system with multiblade antitorque rotor in the annular channel of the vertical tail. Blades of rotors and glider are made of polymeric composites by 60 per cent. The glider is distinguished by excellent aerodynamic outlines, spacious transport passenger cabin and three-stand landing gear with tail crutch. The powerplant includes new-generation engines with module construction designed by Rybinsk Motorbuilding Design Bureau. Civilian modification has borrowed the following characteristics from the basic military one: high cruise speed, fuel efficiency and haul capacity as well as wide transport cabin apertures along the both fuselage sideways. :wave:
