Constellation of aircraft engine manufacturers
For ten years, the Association of Aero-Engine Manufacturers (ASSAD) has been publishing collections of essays entitled “Constellation”. They tell about designers, engineers, scientists, leading specialists and business leaders who have become part of the history of the aircraft industry.
The presentation of the new volume has taken place this autumn. The fourteenth book opens with an essay about the industrialist, the founder of our plant and city, Nikolai Aleksandrovich Vtorov. The second essay is dedicated to Ilya Viktorovich Kabanov, Deputy CEO - Science Director of “Electrostal” Metallurgical Plant” JSC. The collection also features essays on outstanding representatives of other large enterprises.
“In engine building, everything starts with metallurgy”, noted the President of ASSAD, Viktor Mikhailovich Chuiko, “With the development of materials, improvement of their properties, compliance with quality, and bringing into production. One cannot do anything without good materials. It is not accidental that our collection is called “Constellation”. The aircraft industry is a galaxy, from the clouds of which we took and placed 201 stars in our books (this is the number of essays written in 10 years within the project). These 14 volumes are an encyclopedia of aircraft engine building in faces. If you read all the articles, you can imagine how technologies and equipment have improved over time, what outstanding people are behind the achievements of aircraft engine building.”
