History of Kharkov

Kharkov National Aviation University is located in the east of Ukraine in the city of Kharkov. The history of this institution of higher education begins in 1930. In those years, a student of the famous scientist N. Ye. Zhukovsky contributed to the discovery of the Kharkov Aviation Institute. This person was a professor, and in the future academician Georgy Proskura. He and the students of the Kharkov Technological Institute created the groundwork for creating the KhAI. Today KhAI is an advanced university in training. 80% of specialists in the aerospace industry of Ukraine are graduates of this educational institution. In 1937, a jet group worked at the Kharkov Aviation Institute, which created the first missiles. In the 60s of the twentieth century, a laboratory was created at KhAI. At the end of the twentieth century, another popular humanities faculty was created.

In 1932, under the direction of the outstanding professor of the department of aircraft design, Iosif Grigorievich Neman, they created a project of a high-speed aircraft, which was called the KhAI-1. Thus was created the first in Europe passenger aircraft with retractable landing gear in flight. This option provided the KhAI-1 aircraft with a speed record. On the domestic engine M-22, 480 hp He showed a speed of 322km / h, according to this indicator, he took the 1st place in Europe and 2nd in the world. During the period from 1934 to 1937, more than 40 such vehicles were built at the Kiev aircraft factory and in the pre-war years, the KHAI - 1 became the most popular passenger aircraft in the country. All of the listed achievements in this area served as an impetus for the creation of an experimental design bureau at the KhAI.

Work on this area continued, and as a result, from 1936 to 1938, the KhAI-5 was created on the basis of the KhAI-1 aircraft, whose modification the KhAI-5-R10 bomber was actively used during World War II as a reconnaissance aircraft bomber, until 1943 year. The total number of such machines created is 490. In 1934, the KhAI-4 glider first flown by Pavel Georgievich took off for the first time. It was they who were offered a unique system of hydraulic connection between the front and rear chassis, which allowed simultaneously remove and release three wheels in flight. In the summer of 1934, a double glider is created in the KhAI - “KhAI-2. Two months later, at the tenth All-Union glider competitions in Koktebel, the unique KhAI-2 set a record among the gliders of its class, having held in the air for 58 minutes. This record was not the last in those days. On the way back to Kharkov, this aircraft sets another record - the glider piloted by pilot Leonid Rozhkov flew for four and a half hours in tow from the Crimea to Kharkov without a single landing.

The creation of the first domestic turbojet engine is also the hard work of the staff of the Kharkov Aviation Institute. Thus, in 1935, the engineer KhAI A.L. The cradle, developed and designed this equipment under the name RTD-1. Another unique project that has become a reality is the “flying wings”. In 1935, studying in this school, Fischuk, Stasyuk, and Kosukhin created this interesting project, which enables a person who jumped out of a plane to make a planning flight. Today, this creation is known as the “jetpack”. Surprisingly, the first rockets were created and launched by scientists and students of the KhAI. Under the leadership of academician G.F. Proskuru group of scientists, engineers and students constructs and launches the first rocket. This event took place in 1937. The success of this school was demonstrated at international exhibitions in the United States and Canada. For example, the created aircraft KhAI-21 attracted a large amount of attention to the stands at international events. On March 31, 1978, the Kharkov Aviation Institute was given the name of the aeronautics theorist “father of domestic aviation” N.E. Zhukovsky.

To previous achievements, we can add the fact that the university participated in the creation of the space station of international value, and continues to work closely with various international organizations. On the basis of the university there are nine faculties, eight large academic buildings, a scientific laboratory, modern libraries, a sports complex with a swimming pool, and many additional classes.
