  • Where are ‘supermodels’ born?
    Where are ‘supermodels’ born?

    This article isn’t about ladies, as you may have thought, but model aircraft! Particularly those which can confidently be called ‘supermodels.’ Read this article to find out why we call them this and who in TsAGI creates them.

    Each newly designed aircraft must pass spin tests and be checked for other dangerous flight modes. Due to the high risk of failure, creation of such conditions during a flight experiment is a challenging task. This is exactly why scientists at TsAGI use dynamically scaled models (DSMs) in their research.
