Vissarion Kébouroff (ბესარიონ ქებურია / Виссарион Савельевич Кебуров) took flying lessons from Blériot at his flying school in Pau where he obtained a brevet from the Aero Club de France on August 29, 1910, No.209, becoming the first licensed aviator from Georgia. On his return to Russia he brought back two Blériot monoplanes which he flew there frequently. As these machines were rapidly worn out and in need of repair, Kébouroff worked together with Alexander Vasiliev to design and built a new monoplane to replace the aging Blériots. Kébouroff and Vasiliev actually built a pair.
