History[edit] Since 1925 and into the 1930s, TsAGI
developed and hosted Tupolev's AGOS (Aviatziya, Gidroaviatziya i Opytnoye Stroitelstvo, the "Aviation, Hydroaviation, and Experimental Construction"), the first aircraft design bureau in Soviet Union, and at the time the main one.[1] In 1930, two other major aircraft design bureaus in the country were the Ilyushin's "unsystematic" TsKB (Tsentralnoye Konstruksionnoye Byuro, the "Central Design Bureau") and an independent, short-lived Kalinin's team in Kharkiv.[1] In 1935 TsAGI
was partly relocated to the former dacha settlement Otdykh (literally, "Relaxation") converted to the new urban-type settlement Stakhanovo. It was named after Alexey Stakhanov, a famous Soviet miner. On April 23, 1947, the settlement was granted town status and renamed to Zhukovsky. The Moscow
branch of the institute is currently known as MAGI, or Moscow
complex of TsAGI. In 1965 in Zhukovsky an Department of Aeromechanics and Flight Engineering of MIPT was established under TsAGI; it has been preparing young specialists able to solve complex problems of the aircraft industry. Among latest TsAGI
developments are the rocket Energia
and the Space Shuttle Buran. In 2013 TsAGI
developed a testbench for high-speed compound helicopters with propellers.[2] Leaders of TsAGI[edit]
