My airplanes


Accord-prototype airplane

This is a multi-purpose, amphibious aircraft. Two of its most interesting features are retractable floats, and a large, rear-facing cargo door.

I created it as the Chief Designer of the Accord design bureau.

The craft has been flown extensively, both from standard airstrips and rough fields. It was exhibited at the Moscow Air Shows of '91, '93, and '95, and is included in all recent editions of «Jane's All the World's Aircraft». Our test pilot, Michael Nickiforov, made successful, near-aerobatic flights with it.

However, many problems were encountered with the Russian-made powerplants. These engines did not prove reliable, and produced substantially less power than their rated output. The prototype, therefore, did not have sufficient power to fly from water. Since customers were requesting more payload capacity, the design was re-engineered to become the Accord-201.

Accord-201 airplane Accord-201 airplaneAs with the original, this improved model is a multi-purpose, amphibious aircraft, with retractable floats and a large, rear-facing cargo door. Major improvements are the addition of two additional seats, for a total of seven, and a change of engines. Power and reliability are substantially improved by using «Teledyne Continental Motors» IO-360s. The design now incorporates twin tail fins, to deal with the increased take-off thrust. The airframe has been improved and simplified to increase reliability, and to make it economical to produce.

The craft has been flown from both land and water. All the pilots who have flown this plane have praised its outstanding performance. The aircraft was exhibited at the Moscow Air Shows of '97 and '99. It is included in recent editions of «Jane's All the World's Aircraft», together with the original prototype.

My projects:

«Mist» project

This aircraft is designed to meet transportation needs along the sea coasts of Russia.

With economic crisis, overhead costs of ship transportation are making that industry less viable. The Mist could reduce travel time for some people from two days to two hours, at half the cost, with vastly improved comfort. The new aircraft would also be useful in remote areas where roads and railways are less than optimal.

Structure of the airframe is simple and cost effective. Improvements in aerodynamic efficiency provide for useful cruise speeds and increased range.
