For maize on the Arctic Circle Russia

The author talked about his journey to the capital of the Nenets Autonomous Okrug.
It is the only major city in the European part of Russia, which has no permanent road links!




Passengers climb aboard the legendary "maize" An-2 on the street -30, -30 on board, too, and only in distress will be slightly warm warm breath. On board dragged suitcases and boxes, as the luggage compartment at the An-2 no. And flight attendants, who have offered candy and juice, either. This is the reality of modern civil aviation in the Arctic Circle in Russia. While we are here discussing who softer seat in business - some have only one alternative - the AN-2 or Mi-8, and in fact to their village or tent in the tundra from the nearest "Airport" may still need to be a few hours on a snowmobile go. Planes go here as a minibus with intermediate stops, the ground connection is simply impossible!



February 9, 1923 is the birthday of Russian civil aviation aircraft in the Arctic Nenets Autonomous Okrug originates February 4, 1930, when he was made the first flight Arkhangelsk-Syktyvkar-Arkhangelsk. February 13, 1933 opened the first Polar airline, which linked Arkhangelsk with Naryan-Mar. The plane A-507, piloted by LK Fitelberg and flight engineer Mikhail Alexeyev, covered the distance in 6 and a half hours.

While planes were used for mail delivery, hauling furs and fish to Arkhangelsk. Flight to Arkhangelsk lasted about 8 hours. Aircraft landing at various locations: in winter on the ice of the Pechora River near the sawmill in Karmanovskaya Courier and at public lake, and in the summer on a pasture near villages and Kuya Nikittsy.
In 1935, the need to organize an air base in the Nenets Autonomous District was approved in Sevkrayispolkome. Nenets OIC Chairman Ivan Pavlovich Vyucheyskiy proved that for communication with remote areas, reindeer breeding farms, fish encampment district without aircraft can not do. Then, the reception area was equipped aircraft on the ice of the Pechora River. During the war years by the residents of Naryan-Mar was built the first dirt runway. In 1941 it sets up a special aviation group, which was instructed to conduct surveillance on the Northern Sea Route, to control the entrance to the straits of Novaya Zemlya convoy and freight. Naryan-Mar quartered the 16th Air Transport Detachment 3rd Air Group, a subordinate of the White Sea Flotilla. Aircraft are serviced, refueled and rested crews to new departures.

September 30, 1946 the squadron formed 228y. In 1963, the squadron was renamed the Naryan-Mar combined. In 1985, the airline relocated to a new building of the airport, and the freshly runway allowed to take modern aircraft such as the Tu-134, Yak-40, AN-24, AN-26.

The peak of development occurred in the late 80's - early 90's. In that time the largest volumes of flight hours - about 30 thousand. And the helicopter with the aircraft was much more than now. In the late 90's - early two thousandth suffered a serious decline. And only in the last two years the company performance began to improve.

Airport Naryan-Mar now - this airfield, Class B, equipped with landing system category II and III from both directions, and lighting equipment. The airfield receives planes AN-24, AN-26, AN-12, Tu-134, Yak-40, Yak-42, IL-18, CRJ 200, Boeing 737, ATR 42 helicopters of all types. In the winter, at a certain depth of soil freezing can receive IL-76.
