Origins of Russian military aviation are closely associated with Igor Sikorsky - famous Russian aircraft designer. He was the first one that had an idea of multi-engined aircraft and his first four engined aircraft performed its first flight in may 1913. His second plane - "Ilya Muromets" in 1914 performed 1200 km flight from Saint Pertersburg to Kiev. WIth a beginning of WWI Sikorsky started building planes for the army, his aircraft in the beginning of the war had no equal - they could carry up to 800 kg of bombs, were armed with 3-7 machine guns and Had a crew of 8.


 

And while Sikorsky contributed as aircraft designer, Pyotr Nesterov was first Russian prominent pilot - he was the first pilot in history to fly a loop. He founded the practice of aerobatics, stressing the value of these exercises for a military pilot. Nesterov improved the flight methods and designed new flight models.
