SibNIA at the thematic exhibition in the State Duma of the Russian Federation

SibNIA at the thematic exhibition in the State Duma of the Russian Federation February 19-22, 2018 Siberian Aeronautical Research Institute named after S.A. Chaplygin takes part in the exhibition "Aviation Science: 100 Years in the Service of the Motherland", which takes place in the State Duma. The exhibition is dedicated to the 100th anniversary of the Central Aerohydrodynamic Institute named after Professor N.E. Zhukovsky. TsAGI is the founder of aviation science in Russia.
We would like to remind that SibNIA (now it is a part of the "Research Center named after N.E. Zhukovsky") was established in 1941 as a branch of TsAGI No. 2, and now it is the largest aviation research center in the East of the country.
The main exhibit of the exhibition is a group of models of the space program "Energia-Buran". It is worth noting that SibNIA took part in the thermal-strength tests of this famous orbital spaceship.
In the exposition of SibNIA a new development is presented – the model of the first in Russia all-composite biplane TVS-2DTS, which is intended to replace the legendary An-2. In 2019, it is planned to begin mass production of the new aircraft, which can provide the powerful impetus for the revival of small aircraft in Russia.
