Aeroflot: Soviet Air Transport Since 1923
IIIs were leased by D. Fokker F. In this guise, it was designated Crulich VIa. The service to Berlin pages carried passengers and 18 tons of mail.
And some progress was being made elsewhere. On 8 July in Moscow, for example, the first experimental flight was made spraying insecticide from the air, as a prelude to developing aviation for agricultural use page Aerial photography was qUickly recognized to be ideal for mapping.
TKB nefp. Russia's vast eastern expanses, almost totally devoid of surface transport north of the trans-Siberian Railway. Other than Deruluft, another small air transport service, the All-Russian, was offered in On 1 August, flights began between Moscow and Nizhne Novgorod, in conjunction with the annual fair.

The aircraft used were Junkers-F 13s, lent by the German Junkers firm, which was planning to establish an assembly plant in Moscow see opposite. The service operated until 25 September, and 57 flights were made, carrying passengers and 2,kg 5,Ib of freight over the km mi distance. As a result, the Russian authorities ordered 20 Junkers-F 13s for future use, and the national budget for aviation purposes was raised to 35 million rubles. During also, the first Soviet-built aircraft made its debut in Leningrad.
It was a small training model, designated the U-1, and named Red Pilot.
Some are reported to have been built, as well as of the Mu-1 floatplane version. The U-2 was built in Formation of the U. Political consolidation was delayed until the end of , when the Far Eastern Republic, which had declared independence during the turmoil of the Revolution, finally agreed to merge with the Russian S. Russia effectively controlled central Asia, but the republics in that region did not become part of the Soviet Union until On 1 December, as the threat of war receded, the Revolutionary War Soviet of the Republic, under the Chief Directorate of the Workers and Peasants of the Red Army Air Force Glavvozdykhoflot was charged with the responsibility of inspecting all civil aviation and overseeing its technical activities.
Civil Aeronautics Authority, and it paved the way for the establish-. On 9 February , the Soviet Council of Labour and Defence issued a decree whereby the establishment of airlines was entrusted to Glavvozdykhoflot, through the Inspectorate of the Air Fleet. With the support of the post office and other government agencies, the operation was, in turn, placed under a full-time Civil Aviation Board or Council and this event is recognized as the official birth date of Aeroflot.
This influential body was patronized at this meeting by senior party members such as Frunze, Dzerzhinsky, and by Lenin himself. Echoing the Junkers service of the previous year, Dobrolet started a short-lived service from Moscow to Nizhne Novgorod, and carried passengers and 1,kg 4,lb of freight. Dobrolet's capital was increased in to 2 million rubles. Except for this brief interlude, only a few other flights were made, from Moscow to Leningrad, Kazan, Kursk, and Kharkov, but these were neither regular nor open to the public.
But on 19 October , the Council for Labour and Defence established a three-year program to expand air travel, not only within European Russia, but also to Turkestan, and ambitiously, to Mongolia. Designated the Junkers-F 13 - defying superstition - it first went into service in Germany in , and the last F 13 in scheduled service retired in Brazil in Constructed of corrugated light-weight aluminum, it easily outlived the wood-and-fabric steel-framed aircraft of the time, few of which survived for more than two or three years - and would not have lasted long in northern Russia or Siberia.
Restrictive Practices The F 13s were, like all German aircraft, handicapped by severe restrictions imposed by the victorious Allies. In May , all German aircraft were confiscated by the occupying powers, and under the terms of the 'London Ultimatum' of 5 May , these were enforced with even more severity. Not until 14 April was the ban on aircraft construction finally lifted, albeit with limitations on engine power and load carrying. German companies evaded the letter - and the intent - of the law by setting up production in other countries. It also sponsored the formation of airlines in those countries which had no aircraft industries of their own and even one or two that had by setting up joint ventures.
The host country supplied the infrastructure of installations, airfields, and administrative staff; Junkers supplied the aircraft and technical support. The little four-passenger F 13 carried its customers in a comfortable cabin, in comfortable seats; however, the two crew sat in a semi-open cockpit.

The F 13 in Russia Junkers leaped at the chance of taking advantage of the Treaty of Rapallo, signed on 16 April , and in which Germany became the first country to recognize the Soviet Union. A production line was set up at Fili, a suburb of. The coloring, markings, and general configuration of this aircraft were those used for the inauguration of the Dobrolet service from Khabarovsk to'Aleksandrovsk, the new capital of the U.
The date was 9 January , and the historic air connection was made by Mikhail Vodopyanov. Papagei Junkers Luftverkehr. Mossoviet 2. Moscow, where a factory had been built in to produce the Il'ya Muromets. The Fili-built F 13s were designated Ju 13s. During , under the title of Junkers luftverkehr Russland, Ju 13s operated a trunk route from Moscow to Baku, on the Caspian Sea, and center of the new oil industry.
It thus proVided a westbound airlink, via Moscow, with Berlin, via Deruluft; and a potential eastbound connection to Persia an intriguing aerial variant of the Drag Nacht Oosten movement that had, in , seen the sponsorship of the Baghdad Railway, in an effort to extend German influence in Asia. German infiltration into Russian aviation dwindled by the mid-Is. The Moscow - Baku route was taken over by Ukrvozdukhput see next page.
But Junkers aircraft were put to good use all over the Soviet Union see also pages 20 and Ukrvozdukhput and Zakavia An Airline for the Ukraine In the Ukraine, the spirit of republican independence manifested itself by the formation of an airline. Headquarters were at Kharkov, a potential hub for air services throughout the European part of the U. Dornier Establishes a Presence Ukrvozdukhput opened for business on 15 April , when it started to operate from Kharkov to Odessa and Kiev.
Two months later, on 15 June, routes to Moscow and Rostov-on-Don completed a commendable spoke network centered on Kharkov.

The Kalinin aircraft factory was in that City, and a cooperative arrangement was forged with the Dornier company. This latter had connections with the German Lloyd transport group which, in turn, was a partner in Deruluft. Ukrvozdukhput's first fleet consisted of four-passenger Dornier Komet lIs, and a half a dozen six-seat Dornier Komet Ills.
Recognition of the Soviet Union see page 15 had given Germany a doorway for trade, and effective control of the airlines provided a pathway through that door. Aside from being a strong influence on the airline operation, Dornier's methods of construction could clearly be detected on the first Kharkov-based Kalinin aircraft, the K-l, K-2, K-3, and K None went into service with Ukrvozdukhput, but were later to see service with Dobrolet.
