21 October 2014
ОАО "Ил"On October 20, 2014 World Trade Center in Moscow hosted the award ceremony of the annual contest “Aviation worker of the year”, held at the initiative of United Aircraft Corporation, United Engine Corporation, JSC “Russian Helicopters”, non-commercial partnership “Union of Aviation Industrialists” and CJSC “AKB Novikombank.”

In his welcome address at the opening ceremony Deputy Minister of Defense of the Russian Federation Yuri Borisov thanked Russian aviation workers for the pace of aviation equipment production that they have achieved. He said that the Military Department expects more than a hundred new combat aircraft and a hundred new combat helicopters for army needs.

The first award “For personal contribution in the development of aviation industry” was given to Genrikh Novozhilov, General Designer of Ilyushin Design Bureau from 1970 to 2005, member of the Academy of Sciences of the USSR, two-time Hero of socialist labour, at present – Chief Science Adviser of OJSC “Il” General Director. He shared this award with President of JSC “Corporation “Irkut” Oleg Demchenko. When he received the well-deserved award with continuous ovation, Genrikh Vasilyevich thanked the organizers of the contest and expressed his willingness to further serve our country working in the Russian aviation industry. Later during the ceremony H. Novozhilov personally handed out the award in the category “For successful design of aviation equipment and components” (Design Bureau of the year) to General Director of JSC “Russian Aircraft Corporation “MiG” Sergey Korotkov. In the category “For preparation of the new generation of aviation specialists among the enterprises” the III place was taken by Deputy General Director – Director of Economic Affairs and Finance of CJSC “Aviastar-SP” Andrey Toporkov. They submitted for competition the project of “Creation of a joint center of competence of CJSC “Aviastar-SP” and Ulyanovsk State University “Aviation technologies and aviation mobility.”

But it was especially pleasant that this year among the winners and laureates of the contest there were not only established masters of the industry, but young specialists as well. The second prize in the category “For creation of the new scientific model of a physical phenomenon or a technological process” was awarded to the research work “Calculation of dynamic load during landing using package MSC.Software package,” performed by II-category design engineer of OJSC “IL” Flutter and Aeroelastic Stability Department Alexander Ulyanov. In his speech he thanked the OJSC “Il” management for the creation of conditions for professional development of young professionals.

For information

A. Ulyanov was born in 1989. He came to work for OJSC “Il” in 2009 when he was a student in Moscow Aviation Institute from which he graduated in 2012.

Two times he participated in professional contests among OJSC “Il” young employees. In his first competition he was second in the “design engineer (technologist)” category with his work “Development of computational method of examination of LG-wheels shimmy of a transport aircraft on the example of the main LG of Il-76MD-90A aircraft using MSC.Software package.”

For the next competition A. Ulyanov with the use of this model was able to analyze loads during a rough landing not only for landing gear legs, but for all airframe components. He managed to mathematically simulate the behaviour of an elastic aircraft on the runway during landing. This research won the first prize in the category “Design and strength calculations” and was submitted for the contest “Aviation worker of the year” in which it won the honourable second prize.
