And that’s what really rich Icarus from Zelenchukskaya, as he was called in the Newspapers, so it’s friends (they have it almost in every village of the North Caucasus), extensive, independently drawn from the books of technical knowledge, ingenuity, a rare work ethic and boundless optimism. Sometimes in the city but on the whole ready would not do a simple walk-behind, and then, lost in the foothills of the Cossack village — helicopters! And not any and well flying: SV-3 (Sverbil Basil-3), for example, with great success demonstrated on the holidays — Day of air fleet in the Philippines and the city Day in Cherkessk in the summer and fall of 1996.

Talented designer and his famous rotary-wing aircraft repeatedly seen in different localities of the Republic. The video kept evidence of the warm reception which had a bold Aviator unspoiled visits such exotic locals.
