Director General of NIK Ltd. Extends his Best Congratulations to the Myasishchev Design Bureau Team on the Golden Jubilee
On June 14th, 1966 the Ministry of Aviation Industry of the USSR issued a decree on the establishment of the Experimental Machine-Building Plant. It was founded at the initiative of Vladimir Mikhaylovich Myasishchev, who became its General Designer, and later the plant was named after him.
For 50 years Myasishchev Design Bureau has been following the path of glory developing unique aerospace vehicles. Among them Myasishchev M-17 Stratosfera, one-of-a-kind aircraft as is evident from 25 FAI World Records set by M-17, many of them are still on the top.
Myasishchev M-55 Geophysica is widely used nowadays for atmospheric sounding by scientists all over the world.
It is difficult to overestimate the contribution of Myasishchev Design Bureau specialists to the outstanding program – reusable space transportation system
“Energia – Buran”. It covers the development of the unique strategic – airlift airplane Myasishchev VM-T Atlant which provided the transportation of all large sized parts of “Energia” Rocket and “Buran” Orbiter. Another task was designing the Orbiter cabin pressurized module with the systems of life support, thermal control and emergency recovery, development of BTS-002 (“Buran” prototype) and participation in horizontal flight tests.
Myasishchev Design Bureau team finally turned into reality Vladimir Mikhailovch’s dream of developing a civil passenger airplane - M-101Т Gzhel airplane was taken aloft.
Advanced for their time projects developed by the Design Bureau specialists indicate their high creative potential. The most momentous are M-60 airplane with lifting fuselage, M-102 short-haul passenger airplane and a number of others.
We are so proud to have been conceived in Myasishchev Design Bureau.
My congratulations to NIK’s team on this jubilee! Save and develop design traditions, established by Myasishchev Design Bureau specialists.
