Vaxmistrov AVF-8
During his student years at the Air Fleet Academy, Valdimir Vaxmistrov was swept away by the enthusiasm for glider manufacturing that existed at the institution.
In 1924 Vaxmistrov designed a single-seater training glider. Designated " Kondor " by its constructor, it received the consecutive 8 in the control of the academy. It was built on the transport base of the Sovnarkom in Moscow.
The Vaxmistrov AVF-8 “Kondor” (Russian: Вахмистров АВФ-8 «Кондор») was designed as a strut-braced monoplane with a triangular tail unit and a large-area rectangular rudder. The structure was made of wood with a fabric covering.
This single-seat glider first flew on September 22, 1924.It was damaged during the II National Sailing Competitions.
