Together with (and contracted by) the Korea Aerospace Research Institute (KARI), the Dutch National Aerospace Laboratory performed a successful flight test campaign with the Kamov KA32T in South Korea during the summer of 2007. These trials were part of the KA-32 Helicopter Training Simulator Development Program managed by KARI. Within this program, National Aerospace Laboratory developed the flight model and executed the flight tests in close cooperation with KARI and the helicopter operator. A very successful flight test campaign was executed from August 1 to 31, 2007, at the Iksan airbase of the Forest Aviation Office. The installation and calibration of the instrumentation was accomplished within 2 weeks. A total of about 30 hours of flight time was performed in 22 flights. This article describes an interesting project with an international touch, including some distinctive logistical challenges: Korean and Dutch engineers working on a Russian helicopter.
