Yeremeyev Staliniets-1
 
From a visit to the IX National Competition gliding in the town of Koktebel in Crimea between 12 August and 20 September of 1933, a group of students and instructors Pilot School Navales of the RKKA VVS named Stalin decided to develop self-built gliders to participate in these competitions. The apparatuses carried the denomination Staliniets (Сталинец), which can be translated as Staliniano, in relation to the name of the school.
 
Designed by Pavel Avkcientievich Yeremeyev, the Staliniets-1 (Russian: Еремеев “Сталинец-1”) was designed as an aerobatics training glider made entirely of wood and designed for towed flight.
 
Structurally, it was conceived as a monoplane with a high wing braced by V-uprights. The wing, with R-165 profile, had a single spar structure.
 
The fuselage, with an oval section and covered in plywood, made the transition in the tail area towards a small keel to which the offset rudder was fixed and elliptical in shape. The stabilizers were located in the middle of the empennage, braced by uprights to the rear fuselage structure.
 
The pilot was located in an open cockpit in the forward region of the fuselage. The landing gear was of the conventional type and featured small wheels located on the sides of the fuselage.
 
Built in 1934 in Yeisk, Staliniets-1 was registered to participate in the 10th edition of the national glider competitions, held from September 1 to October 6, 1934. The glider arrived at Koktebel towed by air from Yeisk. However, after evaluation, he was denied the possibility of participating in the competition.
