Helicopter Sport

Dear friends!

You are on page "HELICOPTER SPORT".

Our sport was born more than 60 years ago. Many people mistakenly believe that Europe was its birthplace. Yes, although the first World Championship in helicopter sport really took place in Germany in 1971 and with no Soviet pilots, the idea of international competitions belonged to the Soviet Union. In addition, the program of the World Championship included a lot of developments of the Federation of helicopter sports of the USSR. And by that time already 12 domestic competitions had been held in our country.

Over the years, the rules of the competition were modified and improved.

In the 90-ies of the last century, when production of light helicopter ROBINSON R22 and R44 started, the sport has gained a new impetus, because these helicopters have appeared in many countries and have become interchangeable.

Russian pilots carried on the traditions of helicopter sports of the USSR. For the last 20 years they have been the leaders of the world helicopter sport. At all World Championships, since 1992, Russian crews only once became silver medalists in the team qualification. They won all the others.

Most of the world records in helicopter sport belongs to the Soviet, and now Russian athletes.

If you find this interesting, come to us at KONAKOVO airfield.

We’ll train you to win!
