On August 12, 2021, on the eve of the Day of the Russian Air Fleet, a solemn event dedicated to the opening of the Alley of Heroes memorial complex was held at the Flight Research Institute.
The memorial complex of the Flight Research Institute is also the stand "Outstanding Aviation Figures", which displays portraits of scientists, aircraft designers, engineers who have made an invaluable contribution to the development of domestic aviation and the history of conquering the sky; and the legendary "Alley of Heroes", where the memory of the honored test pilots and Heroes of the USSR and the Russian Federation is immortalized.
In its anniversary year, the memorial complex experienced a rebirth, and it included a new composition - the stele "Dedicated to those whose mind gave people wings", presented in the form of a model of the Su-47 aircraft.
At the opening ceremony, the general director of the LII, Evgeny Yuryevich Pushkarsky, addressed the staff of the Institute with a welcoming speech. He noted that a lot has changed over the decades that have passed since the formation of the Flight Research Institute. Aviation equipment, the level of training of specialists, the technical equipment of the experimental base became different, but the main thing remained unchanged - the fundamental approach to research and testing: namely, objectivity, completeness and reliability in testing and researching new aviation equipment.
It is this approach that our pilots, scientists and engineers are implementing in their daily activities at FRI today, it is this approach that is the link between the past of the Institute, its present and its future.
Also, the scientific director of the Institute Tsyplakov Vladislav Vasilyevich and the guest of honor of the LII, deputy of the State Duma Denis Borisovich Kravchenko, addressed the audience. They congratulated those present on the occasion and the 80th anniversary of the Institute, noted the importance of the FRI in the development of domestic aviation.
After the opening of the Alley of Heroes memorial complex, a flower-laying ceremony was held at the monument to the first head of the Flight Research Institute, Mikhail Mikhailovich Gromov.
The memory of the past is our deeds in the present. The memorial complex of the Flight Research Institute is a clear example of the universal respect of all generations of FRI workers, a tribute to the founders of aviation who contributed to the development of the aviation industry in our country.
