Description

The Mil Mi-38 is a transport helicopter designed by Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant. Originally intended as a replacement for the Mil Mi-8 and the Mi-17, it is being marketed in both military and civil versions. In close collaboration with Mil Design Bureau and Eurocopter, "Kazan Helicopters" continues development and production of Mi-38 helicopter prototype. The Mi-38 helicopter meets FAR-29 requirements and European JAR-29, category A and B. The engine of the helicopter has been developed by Pratt-Whitney/Rus and is being designed to meet the requirements of European JAR-E Regulations. The helicopter is intended for day and night operation, under any weather conditions in a range of temperatures from - 60C up to + 50C. The twin-engine Mi-38 can accommodating up to 30 passengers, or carry a payload of five tons, and can be used for civilian and military purposes. Russian Helicopters will start production of its new Mi-38 utility transport helicopter in 2013.
Mi-38 helicopter is capable of flying different missions such as transportation of passengers and cargoes, forestry engineering, construction and installation, exploration, cargo handling, SAR, wrecking, medical aid and evacuation of the seek people. It can be also used as a comfortable passenger cabin. The helicopter is fitted out with a ditching system.

Design
The Mi-38 is of conventional pod and boom construction. The fuselage is mainly of high-strength composite construction. The helicopter is fitted out with a ditching system. The Mi-38 is designed for round-the-clock operation under different weather and climatic conditions within the temperature range from -50° up to +60 °C. The Mi-38 is the helicopter of the classic single-rotor design with six- bladed main rotor, four-bladed X-shaped tail rotor and all-movable stabilizer. Its aerodynamic design enables to minimize the harmful air resistance of the fuselage. The fuselage structure includes three-layer panels and composite parts. The main and tail rotor blades are of glass-fiber materials. The main rotor hub with elastomeric bearings requires no maintenance. The tail rotor design is similar to the one tried-and-true of Mi-28 helicopter.
The helicopter cockpit was designed concurrently with conducting long lasting mock-up researches, which led to successful results: good flight visibility and high ergonomical characteristics, enabling one pilot to fly the helicopter fitted out with the latest avionics. The co-pilot will be needed when carrying passengers. The newest electronics will help to do without any flight engineer.

Avionic
The Mi-38 is also fitted with modified main rotor blades and a new Tranzas "glass cockpit" avionics system. The Mi-38 will be fitted out with up-to-date integrated avionics. Five multifunctional color displays will screen flight data. Besides that, integrated avionics will incorporate weather radar, integrated flight control and navigation system, vehicle monitoring system (VMS), registration and maintenance system, four-channel robot pilot, full authority digital engine controller (FADEC), weight and balance system, night flight systems, etc.
Propulsion
The Mi-38 is offered with a choice of either Klimov TV7-117V or Pratt & Whitney Canada PW127/TS tuboshaft engines. The second Mi-38 helicopter prototype has Pratt & Whitney's PW 127/TS engines, but can also be equipped with Russian-made TV7-117V engines. The twin engines are installed above the main cabin.The Mi-38 can fly at a maximum speed of 300km/h. Its cruise speed is 275km/h. The normal and ferry range of the helicopter are 885km and 1,300km respectively. Its service ceiling is 5,100m. The helicopter weighs around 8,300kg and its maximum take-off weight is 15,600kg.
Accessories
The spacious cabin of the passenger version provides space for 30 seats, galley-unit, baggage compartment and lavatory. Ambulance version enables to accommodate 16 stretchers. The cabin equipment and its arrangement provides maximum comfort. Large aft cargo ramp, the right side wide sliding door and the left side door with the ramp and interior cargo handling equipment make cargo handling handy as well as provide for prompt evacuation from the helicopter also facilitated by the system of emergency exits and hatches Near the right side door the hoist of 300 kg. of lifting capacity is designed. Wheel-track machinery can be driven in on the ramp.
The Mi-38 is equipped with a cargo sling and can carry external loads up to 7t and internal payloads to 5t with a cargo area of 29.5m³. For cargo transport the helicopter is equipped with a television camera and display for monitoring the loading of cargo and the slung loads. Sensors can be fitted for checking the weight of slung loads and the weight and weight distribution of cargo loaded internally
