        Rostislav Apollosovich Belyakov was born on March 4, 1919 in Murom, Vladimir Region.

        In 1936 he graduated from ten classes of a secondary school in Moscow and entered the Moscow Aviation Institute.

        In June 1941, after graduating from the MAI, he was sent to the Special Design Department of the Chief Designer A.I. Mikoyan.

        He worked in arms, chassis, control brigades, and headed design divisions. In 1957, becoming deputy chief designer, he made a great personal contribution to the creation of reliable control systems for new supersonic fighters. In 1962 he was appointed first deputy general designer.

        Since 1969, due to the serious illness of A.I. Mikoyan, he served as the general designer. Approved in this position by the Decree of the Council of Ministers of the USSR dated March 5, 1971. He worked productively at the post of general designer until 1997. Then he worked as an advisor to the general designer, chairman of the Scientific and Technical Council of the Design Bureau. He was awarded the title of Honorary General Designer of MiG aircraft.

        Outstanding domestic combat aircraft were created under the leadership of Belyakov. Among them: the MiG-27 fighter-bomber, various modifications of the MiG-21, MiG-23 and MiG-25 aircraft, the light front-line MiG-29 fighter, the unsurpassed MiG-31 fighter-interceptor, as well as a number of fundamentally new aircraft, including a fifth-generation experimental fighter.

        Rostislav Belyakov made a fundamental contribution to the development of a number of scientific areas related to the design of aircraft and their systems. In 1974 he was elected a corresponding member of the USSR Academy of Sciences, and in 1981 - its full member.

        Achievements of Rostislav Belyakov are recognized by the global aviation community.

        He was elected an honorary professor at the Moscow Aviation Institute and Peking University, an honorary member of the Royal Society of Aeronautics (Great Britain). His name is on the wall of the Hall of Fame of the United States National Aviation and Space Museum.

        Rostislav Belyakov - Laureate of the Lenin Prize (1972) and two State Prizes of the USSR (1952, 1988). Twice Hero of Socialist Labor (1971, 1982). He was awarded four Orders of Lenin, the Orders of the October Revolution, the Red Banner of Labor, the Red Star, the Badge of Honor, the Order of Merit to the Fatherland, 2nd degree, and many medals.

    It seems to me that it is necessary to publish the Encyclopedia of Outstanding Designers, whose work and knowledge gave Russia and the whole world the most advanced technologies and inventions. It is imperative to include Mendeleev, Koshkin and Morozov, Degtyarev and Simonov, Korolev and Kurchatov, Sukhoi, Lavochkin and other Great Designers. Or maybe it is worth holding an action like "The Name of Victory"? But only "The Greatest Constructor". This is how we stimulate our children to study the history and design thought of Russia.

      - Be sure to include Kalashnikov, Gryazev and Shipunov there.
      I support the idea. You can even try on the basis of this site.
      According to SAJU - Imanda Bolsyn. May the earth rest in peace to the great son of Russia.

      Just do not include the outstanding designer of our time and the chief sawmill of the aviation budget Poghosyan.

    With Belyakov, R.A. Menya connected my whole life. For his aircraft, starting in his youth, he created automatic landing systems. He also worked with Mikoyan. Belyakov was a seasoned, charming designer. For many years we were together in Vladimirovka, then on Balkhash. Then I began to create guidance systems for his planes. And again, his support is much and in time we were allowed to do. May he rest in peace. The military and system designers will have a memory of him, many still work. I have the honor.

    When MIG designers were asked at one of the air shows,
    -What power keeps your planes in the air and allows them to maneuver and move like that?
    The answer was this:
    -The work of the hundreds of thousands of people who design and assemble them.
    The "old guard" is leaving, gradually leaving us, unfortunately. It remains to be hoped that Russia has left a worthy replacement.




    The man left, and the planes that he created serve Russia and guard the sky over its expanses.
    Eternal GLORY !!! And a bright memory.
