Pavel Sukhoy, the man who engineered the future, the creator of one of the most imperceptible aircrafts of the Great Patriotic War, became the father of the modern Russian airforce.

Pavel Sukhoy is always referred to as the man ahead of his time. And that is very true. All of his innovations and inventions were prospective and intended for the future. They were often too progressive for the present and the time was ripe for them later. Strangely enough, nobody is surprised that lots of jet aircrafts engineered by Pavel Sukhoy - for instance Su-17, Su-24 and Su-25 — have been flying for around thirty years already, having left almost all of their "contemporaries" far behind!

Pavel Osipovich Sukhoy was an outstanding Soviet aircraft designer, the Doctor of Engineering, one of the founders of the Soviet jet and supersonic aircraft.

Pavel Sukhoy was born into the teachers’ family on July 22, 1895.

After graduating from the Moscow Military Technology University in 1925 he worked in the design office of Anatoly Tupolev and engineered the fighters I-4, I-14, the record-breaking aircrafts ANT-25 and ANT-37 Rodina.

In 1939−1940 Pavel Sukhoy was the chief designer at the Kharkov aviation plant. In 1942 — 1943 he engineered and directed the construction of the armored attack aircraft Su-6. From 1953 he headed his own aviation design office.

In post-war years Pavel Sukhoy was among the first Soviet aircraft designers to lead the developments in the field of jet aircraft, having created several training jet fighters. His design office developed a number of serial combat aircrafts, including Su-7 fighter with the flight speed twice higher than the sound speed, the fighters interceptors Su-9, Su-11, Su-15, strike fighters Su-7B with chassis for soil airfields and Su-17 with the wing sweep changeable during flight, the front bomber Su-24, the attack aircraft Su-25, the fighter Su-27 and lots of other planes.

More than 50 aircrafts were engineered under the direction of Pavel Sukhoy.

He lived and worked in Moscow. Pavel Sukhoy died on September 15, 1975 and was laid down to rest in the Novodevichy Cemetery in Moscow.
