Yeremeyev Staliniets-3
Designed by Pavel Yeyemeyev as a single-seater aerobatic trainer, the Yeremeyev Staliniets-3 (Russian: Еремеев “Сталинец-3”) was built between March and May 1935 by enthusiasts in Yeisk.
The Staliniets-3 was an all-wood single-seater glider, unlike its previous model, the "Staliniets-3" was conceived as a high-low-wing monoplane using inverted V-uprights. The wing design used the TsAGI R-II profile proposed by the engineer PP Krasilschikov and had a trapezoidal shape in the plane, with rounded ends.
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 and elliptical rudder was attached. 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 Yeisk by Yeremeyev in 1935, the Staliniets-3 glider was entered in the XI National Sailing Competitions held in Koktebel between September 6 and October 6, 1935. In these competitions its performance was good.
The pilots who flew it highlighted that it presented good control and was able to respond without problems to the controls during the execution of school piloting figures. Its landing speed was considered high, but the glider handled the manoeuvre meekly.
The only problem pointed out by the pilots was that the pedals in the cockpit were very close to each other, which brought confusion and fatigue on long flights.
