A brief history of the formation and development of "Kostroma Kostroma Airport» Airport

As is known, the history of Kostroma Sokerkino Airport is very long and eventful. Initially, in 1944, a small and rather primitive airfield for the national economy was built. It was serviced by aircraft of the Moscow squadron. 

The first civilian aircraft landed at the 6.11.1944 airfield of the year. It was an aircraft like PO-2, which was constantly based on the territory of the airfield of Kostroma. As you know, this is a small device, it could carry two crew members and only three passengers. But a small revision of the machine allowed to transport goods or patients on a stretcher. Since 1949, additional aircraft have been allocated. 

Most of the aviators and service personnel were military pilots during the war. Since the 50s, aircraft began to take an active part in the cultivation of agricultural land. They also transported mail. 

Long-haul flights to Moscow, Gorky, Ivanovo, and Volgograd were launched from 1954, on An-2 aircraft. From 1957, Mi-1 type helicopters began to be used. With the help of helicopter technology, sanitary transports and forest patrols began. They also carried out aerial photography, transportation of repair crews and rescue operations. 

Prior to 1962, the 94 pilot operated at the airport, but there was often not enough equipment. Even at this time, passenger traffic was quite active, since the passenger turnover reached the 1,5 indicator of thousands of people per day. The first regular flight to Moscow was carried out by high-speed aircraft such as the Yak-40. 

Airport "Kostroma Sokerkino" became open to international air traffic from 1975 of the year. Were adjusted flights to the GDR on the An-2 and Mi-2. In the 1977 year, the L-410 turboprop passenger vehicles were provided for basing at the airport, linking Kostroma with Leningrad, Moscow, Orel, Gorky, Saratov, Kharkov, Penza and many other cities in the USSR.
