Now we are going to a warehouse that is actually abandoned. Many people come nearby everyday without even knowing that the facade of a 4-storey house with conditioners hides airplanes covered with dust. But can the old parts of the planes be used in future projects?
A student’s constructor bureau was formed in 1965 at the plane building faculty of the Moscow aviation institute. It was busy with the creation of experimental piloted and remote controlled light flying machines.
In 1999 employees of the workshop were given State awards of the Russian Federation for achievements in science and technology and implementation of super-light multi-functional planes into production.
Aviatika-MAI-890 was one of the most successful projects. It made the first flight in 1989.
Over 200 of Aviatika-MAI-890 planes have been produced and sold since 1992.
This is a very light multi-functional airplane used while training, patrolling, aerial photographing, etc. One version of the plane is used in agriculture.
Autozhir-MAI-205 made its first flight in 2001 and was produced on the basis of Aviatika.
The project is frozen till now.
Another interesting plane called T-101 Grach was developed here.
