The contents of this illustrated book reflect the main goal of the authors: to publicize ICAO, to show its role in the development of the world aviation as well as that of Russia in this process. In the year of the 50th anniversary of ICAO the authors felt the obligation to relate to a brief and popular form the history of the civil aviation and the stages of international cooperation in this field.
The text and the illustrations were composed in such a way as to make this publication attractive for common readers who, one day or another, could become air passengers. The editor AEROFLOT is still, on the verge of the XXI century, the national Russian carrier and the greatest aviation structure of the world community. This fact and the attention that the ICAO direction paid to the English edition let us hope it would be a success. The authors express acknowledgements to lots of persons and organizations that contributed to the accumulation of information and documents in this sphere of aviation history.
Our interviews with the top executives of ICAO and the Russian nationals working there gave us the experience especially precious and necessary to create this book.
THE AUTHORS :
In 1990–1993 this group took part in the creation of a number of books about Aeroflot. Mainly distributed among foreign readers, they were also met with a certain professional interest in the aviation community.
Vladimir Ivanovitch Massenkov heads the advertising division of Aeroflot (Moscow). While supervising the whole of the authors’ team, he also contributed to the selection of materials, editing and publishing. He personally wrote about the demonopolization of Aeroflot and the foundation of the joint-stock company ‘Aeroflot-Russian International Airlines’. Based on his extensive experience in the foreign representations of Aeroflot, he analysed their successes in competition as well as their financial and commercial achievements. He shares with the audience their ways, forms and methods of increasing efficiency on the modern international market for aviation services.
Boris Davidovitch Urinovsky having graduated from the Moscow Institute of Aviation Technologies has worked for over 15 years in the Ilyushin bureau. Getting the Ph.D. degree and teaching students in the Moscow State Technical University expanded his range of interests.
B. Urinovsky performed a number of ‘pioneering’ works concerning productive use of aircraft, programs of maintenance, repairs of composite constructions. With the coming of market relations with Russia, he conducted research on the economics of joint-stock airlines and legal justification of the necessity to certify and licence air transportation as well as the elaboration of certain standards and their registration in ICAO.
His cooperation with air publicity was very positive. Several books on the commercial aviation of the USSR and the history of Aeroflot have been published in recent years. Vadim Ivanovitch Suvorov is a professional journalist, former pilot and one of the oldest among the company workers. He keeps in close contact with TV and press. His erudition and considerable life experience account for his profound and original approach to the problems of aviation publicity in this new stage of development of Russian civil aviation.
