Excursion to airspace department of the museum of the National Technical University of Ukraine

16.I.2013 26

airspacemuseum.jpgUkraine is the country with long airspace history. It was in Kiev, where Igor Sikorsky constructed his first helicopter and the first multi-engine plane Russky Vityaz. The planes of Konstantin Kalinin, Kharkov aircraft designer, are described in every encyclopedia of aircraft. Launch vehicles by Yuzhmash Dnepropetrovsk plant were the basis for Soviet strategic and space power. Heavy cargo aircraft Mriya and Ruslan by Oleg Antonov still remain unequalled, and engines by Mikhail Yangel as well as launch vehicles of Yuzhmash are used in many countries.

This Web-cam (http://kpi.ua/cam1) shows the airspace department of the museum of the National Technical University of Ukraine ‘Kyiv Polytechnic Institute’ (hereinafter referred to as KPI) from the main building of the university. The aircraft repair shops were situated in those building during World War I. Straight before you there is the monument to Igor Sikorsky. The Avenue of monuments to the famous scientists and engineers, whose study or work was connected with Kyiv Polytechnic Institute, is located between the museum buildings and the main building of KPI.

The excursion is planned for 12:00 12 April. The duration of the excursion is 2 hours. We would kindly ask you to register in advance by comment to this page. If the number of registrants does not exceed 5 April till 10 (date), the excursion will not take place.
