Significant role in this continuing withdrawal of registered aircraft, speaking specific advertising inseparable connection of the Red Army and the Russian society. As in the 1920s. across the country lasted for events intended to equip the Air Force with the latest military technology from traditional funds collected by voluntary donations.
Despite the previously established rules under which the aircraft could receive only the names of deceased famous people, for the sake of being implanted in the country cult "Führer" began the process of assigning aircraft (gliders) Hello names of party-state elite, and control of the Red Army. In the middle of the first such honor awarded fighter of the "I-5", topped the naming "Klim Voroshilov"1, at the time of the USSR People's Commissar of Defense and the 1st of the closest associates IV Stalin. This aircraft Chief of Air Force (1931 — 1937 gg.) YI Alksnis2 Periodically check the air units near Moscow3. In honor of the Alksnisa was named the single-seat experimental gidroplaner "G-12" design VK Gribovskogo, built in 1933
More recognizable aircraft originally entered Alexander Yakovlev4, encrypting the title aircraft under the abbreviation "AIR"Initials own highest patron — chairman of the SNK Alexei Ivanovich Rykov5. In coming up in the Soviet Union was launched in the creation of several series of aircraft of this type. But that followed in the middle of the 1930s. political processes in the country against the so-called "Enemies of the people", including and AI Rykov, just shut down the project.
The same fate was realized and gliders "PP Postyshev"6 (PG design Bening, 1934), "ER" (Robert Eideman)7 (OK Antonov design (6 series), 1933 — 1937.). Military and municipal leaders, after whom they were named, were victims of Stalin's tyranny. Meanwhile, the air spaces of the country continued to roam the gliders with the names "Stalinets"(Different versions, designs Eremeeva PA),"Sergo Ordzhonikidze"8 (BV Belyanina design), and other processes occurring in the country associated with the rapid update of the governing bodies in the upper echelons of power, and are reflected in the title of aircraft.
Lasted trend assign an aviation unit and part of the name of municipal and party favorite country. In 1930. in the Red Army Air Force appeared "Fighter Brigade named SS Kamenev9"10, "Squadron of the MI Kalinin11 "" Light air squadron of Air Force Institute of aviation brigade named NV Krilenko12"13, "3 separate air squadron name Orjonikidze"14, "201 legkobombardirovochnaya Aviation Brigade name that KE Voroshilov "15 etc. This included not only the living and surviving members of the military and political control of the country, and has gone out of life. Thus, due to the catastrophic death of a prominent party leader of the country, the first secretary of the Leningrad Regional Committee of the CPSU (b) SM Kirov16 Many military units and military educational institutions of the Red Army were named in his honor. The air force is the right won 3rd Aviation Brigade special purpose.

Henceforth, these military units called:
1. "Division 2 defense named after SM Kirov. "
2. "3 Aviation Brigade special purpose named after SM Kirov. "
The People's Commissar of Defense of the USSR Voroshilov
In the first half of 1930. number of units and institutions of Air Force were assigned names recognizable military pilots and military control, and dramatically departed from the life: P. Baranova — Chief of Air Force (1925 — 1931 gg.)18, PH Mezheraupa19 (Inspector of Air Force), VI Pisarenko (Senior Assistant Inspector of Air Force)20 etc.
A special place in the history of Russian aviation since occupied a specially formed aircraft squadron agitation
behalf AM sourness21. In fact, all the planes, which were part of it, wore the name of the leading Russian newspapers and magazines — "The Truth" (ANT-14), "Spark" (Day-9), "Peasant Newspaper" (ANT-9), "Spark" (K -5), "Krasnaya Gazeta" (AIR-6), etc. So, warped emergency landing "ANT-9" was repaired and assigned him a new name — "Crocodile" (by name is popular in the USSR satirical magazine). For bolschoy uveritelnosti nose of an aircraft depicted in the form of a grin tropical reptiles.
Squadron became the favorite of the campaign plane vosmimotorny giant "Maxim Gorky" (ANT-20)22, made under the common control of the famous Russian aircraft AN Tupolev23 and won the title in connection with the fortieth anniversary of the literary and public activity of the majestic Russian writer AM sourness. Unfortunately, the fate of the aircraft was tragic. May 17, 1935 in the skies over Moscow air collision happened giant who performed a pleasure flight, accompanied with one of his fighter aircraft, "I-15» (№ 4304). Piloted fighter military test pilot TSAGI NP Blagin24, in the process of making an unscheduled aerobatics nearby "Maxim Gorky", inadvertently bumped into him. In a plane crash killed 47 people, including test pilots, crew (11 people), TsAGI employees and their families. The country has lost a single, unique in its own way the aircraft.
From the materials of the newspaper "Pravda" May 20, 193525
On the second lap, "Maxim Gorky" made a U-turn to the left and went toward the airfield …. Blagin, being on the right wing, despite the prohibition, made right "barrel" (one of the complex aerobatics) and walked out of inertia on right off the plane. Then he ran to the left wing … added gas, burst forward and suddenly became the latest to do aerobatics. It was very unsafe, because it could drag on inertia to "Maxim Gorky". Figure it did not work out, he lost speed and crashed into the right wing of the "Maxim Gorky", about the average motor. … The blow was Straseni force. "Maxim Gorky" banked to the right, he flew from a dark hood and pieces of training aircraft [incorrect assessment: the plane "E-5" was a fighter]. "Maxim Gorky" proparhal of inertia for 10-15 seconds, the slope of ever rising, and he began to fall on the nose. Then he pulled away from the tail of the fuselage, the aircraft ran into a vertical dive and rolled over onto his back. The car hit the pine trees began to demolish and completely fell apart on the ground.
According to some professionals, this disaster was a result of the outbreak in the country promoting aerobatics. First boom dizzying demonstration flight Our homeland has experienced the other day of the First World War, when the sky of the country showed their skill outstanding Russian and French aviators. As in the 1910s. Air prazdnichkom with virtuosic acrobatic figures again collected 10 of thousands of spectators, which significantly expanded the enthusiasm of a high-class in society.
Do not stand aside and representatives of non-powered aircraft. One of the best glider Soviet Union at the turn of 1920/1 930-ies. Vasily A. Stepanchonok October 28, 1930 for the first time in the world on a single aerobatic glider "Red Star" SC-3 (SP structures Queen, 1930) performed aerobatics "loop the loop" (3 times).
According to the views of the airframe design "The construction of such machines had to actually prove their own ability to produce aerobatic glider in general. The only experience in this area has been done in America, but the pilot Hase, who made four loops, used to climb through the plane, glider tow it. So makarom for glider, without the help of others to gain height, a similar task posed for the first time "26.
Later on a glider "G-9" (VK design Gribovskogo) VA Stepanchonok was able to repeatedly perform "loop the loop" (115 times), and the subsequent flight, the number of loops is headed for number 184. Glider Aerobatics Vasily was the beginning of the development of our country and the world aerobatics. VI on the 11th rally glider (g Koktebel, 1930) VA Stepanchonok on the same airframe, "D-9" for the first time in the world have mastered such stunts as flip, spin, fly on the back. Immediately he began teaching high aerobatics others. Soon his students showed these figures on aviation prazdnichkom in Tushino.
It is necessary to point out that the previously mentioned glider "PP Postyshev "was also able to do aerobatics. So on the 10th rally of piloting his aeronautic pilot LS Ryzhkov successfully performed the "loop the loop" and other aerobatic maneuvers, and SN Anokhin with his parachute jump from very low altitudes way of failing. According to its flight features glider was recognized as one of the best aerobatic machines.
Solving puzzles propaganda, the inscriptions on the sides of airplanes and gliders sometimes reflect the current history of the country. Thus, there is the Sino-Soviet armed conflict (1929) was immediately reflected in the form of "Our response belokitayskim bandits", and a complicated relationship with the Vatican Russian control — "Our response to the Roman father." From time to time the name of aircraft had a funny origin. So, made in 1932, the designer VK Gribovskaya single training glider was sent by rail in Koktebel the Supreme flight gliding school. On the way to the car with the glider was lost somewhere and came to school only six months later, in 1933 in connection with such long delays sharp-tongued school instructors, considering that the glider wandered the roads of the country's steel as bloodless child, named it "waif". Later glider participated in the IX th and X th aeronautical gatherings of the country.
With the establishment of the Soviet Union in the highest rank of the Hero of Russian Union (1934) individual aircraft soon adorned with this inscription. Except for the title of extraordinary popularity in the country and received the first pilots of the award of a noble title. The names of some of them were soon captured in aircraft. The first such honor was given to the pilots MM Gromov and MV Vodopianov. On the initiative of the Azov-Black Sea glider flying club of the "parasol monoplane," was the title of chief of the club — "Michael Vodopianov"27.
Meanwhile, the country lasted share of national construction and equipping of Russian aviation modern military equipment. PBC issued the orders of the USSR (later NKO), she cut one of the aviation units.

Thus, the warriors of the Metropolitan Area of the military on their savings have been built aircraft "Name the 81st Infantry Division" and "Name of the military school after the All." In June 1930, the staff of this school took the initiative to build a squadron "Name XVI Congress of the CPSU (b)," and for this purpose he brought to the State Bank an initial payment of $ 5 thousand.
People's contribution to the cause of development of Russian military aircraft ever get reflected in the titles of new air units being approved in the governing documents of the highest level. In the period 1932 — 1934 years. in the Red Army Air Force appeared many registered units and parts, including: "54 separate air corps name" Oilers Transcaucasia "29, "Aviation Squadron behalf of the All-Union Congress of the ITR 5 '30, "11 military pilot school name of the proletariat of Donbass"31, "255 Aviation Brigade name of the proletariat of Kiev region"32 etc.

Taking the patronage of the Air Force, the Komsomol issued the call: "Komsomolets — on the plane!".

In the coming years, many military aircraft adorned with inscriptions, clearly demonstrates the inextricable link with the Communist Youth League Russian aviation.
Continue into 1930. ultra-long flights of Russian aviators also found the text reflected in the visual arts, cultivated on planes. In order to promote the achievements of Russian aviation aircraft that took part in the specific flights, get some names. In the middle of the first plane can be called "Land of the Soviets" (ANT-6), who committed the first in the history of Russian aviation intercontinental flight. In autumn 1929 the crew consists of: SA Shestakov (commander), FE Bolotov (second pilot), DV Fufaeva (mechanic) and BV Sterligova (navigator) established the "air bridge" between the towns of Moscow and New York (USA). With all of this Russian pilots held in the air 1 37 flying hours and have been for that time period 21242 km (8000 miles of them over the water). Earlier, in 1927, the most experienced pilot Simon Shestakov, coupled with his constant mechanic Dmitry Fufaeva had already experience long-distance flight, performed by the Moscow — Tokyo — Moscow.
A flight crew made "Land of the Soviets" was of fundamental national importance. During the Russian war majestically on this route was paved air route along which a Russian alliance of the United States did so needed for the war effort South American aircraft such as: "Boston", "Cobra", etc.
Coming soon on board the aircraft appeared the names of prominent pilots of the country participated in the ultra-long haul flights. For example, in 1934 plane "ANT-25RD 'was decorated words" years. Gromov-owl-Spirin "dedicated to well-known in the history of Russian aviation flight by Russian pilots MM Gromov34, AI Filene's and IT Spirin35, have established the world record for distance and duration of the flight. In the Russian press since this unprecedented event in the history of Russian aviation noted: "… Recognizable Russian test pilot Mikhail Gromov and his crew — co-pilot and navigator Alexander Filin Ivan Spirin — in crediting record flight took off in the afternoon September 10, 1934 and drove the car on a triangular route Moscow — Ryazan — Tula. Despite the heavy flight asso
ciated with a tremendous risk to the life of the pilots in the morning on September 13, in connection with the termination of fuel in the fuel tanks of aircraft "ANT-25RD 'coercion did land on one of the nearby airports of Kharkov. During the flight, the crew was in the air 75 hours 2 minute. Previously, no one in the world so long did not fly. Only in a closed curve was passed 12411 km. For this feat the CEC of the USSR M. Gromov was awarded the highest title of Hero of the Russian Union. The same resolution AI Owl and IT Spirin awarded the Order of Lenin … "36.
World wide response received transarctic flight from Moscow to the Far East, received the title: "Stalin's route." Participating in it the crew of "ANT-25-2" as part of the pilots: Valery Chkalov37, ZHoru Baydukova38 and Alexander Belyakov39 was able to run over the Arctic new air route. Total brave pilots 56 hours and 20 minutes the aircraft crossed 9374 kilometers. For ultra-long flight from Moscow — Fr. Udd committed in 1936, the said pilots were awarded the highest title of Hero of the Russian Union.
Keep pace with aviators and pilots are women. By plane "Homeland" (ANT-37 bis, SB-2B) in the period 24-25 September 1938, a crew consisting of Valentina Grizodubovoy40, Polina Osipenko41 and M.Raskovoy42 flew for 26.5 hours of 5908 km from Moscow to the Far East Township Kirby. The flight took place in bad weather criteria for the fierce cold and behind the cab and ended a forced landing. For this feat brave pilots were awarded the highest title of Hero of the Russian Union.
Meanwhile, the world has begun to smell danger newest World War II, much has changed in the coming-to-date way of the country and its armed forces. To replace the world record in the airspace of harsh confrontation went for it.
