Chief of the Central Clinical Hospital was entrusted Sergey Ilyushin. Under his leadership, KB began to occupy a leading position in the construction of complex aircraft among similar enterprises of the USSR.

The results of this KB are impressive. For 80 years of its existence more than 200 has been developed within its walls and more than 120 different types of aircraft have been created. The factories engaged in the production of Ilyushinsky cars produced during this time over 60 000 units of aircraft equipment of the brand "IL". The main features that distinguish the products of this brand are a high degree of reliability, manufacturability of production, simplicity of design, convenient maintenance and piloting, a great resource. The enterprise produced aircraft of various purposes at different times. They were also planes of assault, bomber aviation, special purpose, military transport, passenger and others.

Ilyushin Design Bureau

Bureau named. Ilyushin its developments frontline assault fighters and bombers made a significant contribution to the Soviet victory in World War II.

The navy of the country during the Great Patriotic War on 30% consisted of stormtroopers IL-10 и IL-2, Long-range bombers IL-4. In the postwar period IL-28 It became the first mass model of the Soviet Air Force jet bomber.


History of the Design Bureau. Ilyushin (now - Aviation Complex. Ilyushin) can be viewed on his work.

  • • Mid-1940-s - the first domestic mass passenger aircraft were launched, which marked the beginning of the creation of air transport aviation in the USSR. IL-18 turboprop powerplant was cheap and unpretentious in operation, making flights affordable type of movement for Soviet citizens on domestic air routes. Also, it was sold abroad.

  • • Long-haul turbojet aircraft IL-62 together with the modification of the Il-62M became the flagship of "Aeroflot". It is characterized by high safety during flight and comfort for passengers. Through his creation of an increasing number of international airlines. Passenger traffic began in 1967, and continued to this day.
