OJSC "Moscow Helicopter Plant named after ML Mile "(MVZ. Mil), the famous design bureau (CB) and the developer of many well-known in the world of helicopters, including The Mi-8, Mi-24 and Mi-26, notes 65-year anniversary.
In 1947, the outstanding designer Michael L. Miles headed by the Development Department, which later became one of the best schools in the world helicopter industry. Today, the tradition of the school as part of the holding company "Helicopters of Russia" successfully continues and develops the MVZ. ML Mile.
Helicopters "Mi" brand, created by designers under the direction of the Mile and his followers can be called unique. This legendary helicopters MI-8/17 who became an example of the mass production helicopter in the history of world aviation (over half a century produced over 12 thousand units). This is a modern combat Mi-35M — the only one of its kind military transport helicopter, as well as lifting the world’s most Mi-26 (T) (capacity — 20 tons), the newest attack helicopter Mi-28N "Night Hunter" with unique maneuverability opportunity and ability to perform combat missions in bad weather and at any time of day.
History MVZ. ML Mile is rich with examples of bold design solutions, which are used and served as the basis for the future development of unique. In many ways, the familiar face of the modern helicopter was formed thanks to the work of specialists of this particular size. Original design discoveries often served as a pretext for the development of other helicopter technologies that are now being implemented both in Russia and in other countries, with its own capacity to design and manufacture of helicopters.
Now design bureau ML Mile — this is one of the most important intellectual assets of the Russian helicopter holding company "Helicopters of Russia". MVZ. ML Mile was the basis of innovative helicopter cluster that is created at the National Center helicopter (NCV) of the holding "Helicopters of Russia", located in the village. Luberets Tomilino, Moscow Region. In NTSV focused research, design and engineering resources Mil, there will also be located assets Kamov design bureau, which experts complete the move to a new, modern building.
Create NCV based on two eminent Russian KB — the construction of modern intellectual infrastructure in the helicopter as part of a process aimed at innovative development of the Russian economy. The presence of a single center of competence will enable the industry to concentrate intellectual resources, directing them to the creation of new breakthrough technologies and the development of helicopters, as demanded by state customers and the global commercial market.
Among the priorities of the Mil Moscow Helicopter Plant. ML Mile today — working on projects of the Mi-38, Mi-171A2, "PSV", etc. In particular, "PSV" in the middle class — the project RACHEL, presented by the global commercial market in 2012 at an international air show Farnborough — refers to breakthrough innovation, it can have a systemic impact on the future world helicopter.
Much attention is also paid to the study and use of composite materials, which are now being actively implemented on all models, as promising and already produces. Russian engineers with leading experts involved in international projects on the study of advanced materials, including composites to study in the CFK Valle Stade in Germany. It is planned that the Russian helicopters will receive new quality: they must become faster and more powerful, increasing capacity and reducing operating costs.
