Histoire résuméeIn 1958, students of the Faculty of Aircraft A. Krivomlin, M. Aleksandrov, Yu Belov, A. Belosvet, V. Irinarkh, S. Kurylenko, E. Mizinov, V. Novikov and others joined in the SKB (Student Design Bureau) to build a "flying-wing" glider, LK-MAI. This was only a project and the MAI-63 design was based on the research done to develop LK-MAI.
In autumn 1962 the members of ASK MAI (Aviation Sport Klub), the research section of which was headed by A. I. Pietsukh, began to develop the single seat "flying-wing" glider, MAI-63. In 1964 at the the studio laboratory of the department of design and engineering students under the leadership of A. I. Pietsukh built a glider. Students done all steel and assembly work on their own. Many of them hed working skills, as they were masters of the aeromodelling sport.
MAI-63 tests were conducted in 1964 in Alferevo by glider testpilot A. I. Pietsukh. There have been several tow on the
ground approaching take-off speed. Because of the lack of torsion rigidity of the wing no flights were done. After the tests the stiffness of the wing was increased and the structure was partially modified.
In 1965, MAI-63 was modified to a motor-glider installing on a pole erected over the central part of the glider an air-cooled EP-760 23 HP, five-cylinder, two-stroke radial engine. The aim was to perform further tests by selflaunching. The engine was designed by Polyakov specifically for motor-gliders and light aircraft. The modified glider got the designation MAI-63M. Tests were conducted at the flying club's airport. The engine during the trial taxi runs was unstable so the powered version of the glider had never flown.
