The main activity is the production of spare parts for aircraft, the provision of services to maintain the airworthiness of Il-76 and Il114 aircraft and their modifications. Production of consumer goods. The date of birth of the plant is 1932. The plant was founded on the basis of an aircraft repair shop in the suburban village. Khimki, Russia.
In 1935, the plant began production of VIT-1, VIT-2, I-15, I-15v, I-16, I-153 Chaika fighters designed by Polikarpov.
In June 1937, hovercrafts L-1 and L-5 were built by designer Professor V.I. Levkov.
Most of the aircraft created at the plant were tested by the Hero of the Soviet Union V.P. Chkalov. His name was given to the plant at the request of the workers and employees of plant No. 84 in September 1937.
In 1938, a short-range high-speed bomber BBS with two engines was built and tested, designer V.F. Bolkhovitinov.
The main thing for the plant was the development of one of the most reliable machines of that time - the licensed American aircraft "Douglas-3" (DS-3) in passenger and transport versions.
The aircraft received a new name PS-84 (passenger aircraft of the 84th plant). The plant began mastering the production of the PS-84 aircraft in 1938, in 1939 the head series was produced, and in 1940 - a large batch of aircraft - this year the plant began mass production.
In the autumn of 1941, due to the outbreak of World War II, the plant was evacuated from the city of Khimki, Moscow Region, Russia to the city of Tashkent, Uzbekistan (the first echelon arrived on November 20, 1941), where the plant was located on the former premises of plant No. 243 GVF; Polygraph plant; woodworking workshops of Chirchikstroy and with the help of Uzbek workers, with the direct participation of the leaders of the Government of Uzbekistan, only two months after the evacuation, the production of modernized PS-84 (Li-2) aircraft for military aviation was restored.
The first military transport aircraft PS-84 was raised into the sky of Tashkent on January 7, 1942. During the war, 2258 aircraft were produced.
In September 1942, the PS-84 aircraft was renamed Li-2 ("Lisunov-2") after the Chief Engineer of the plant Lisunov Boris Pavlovich, who made a huge contribution to the development of aircraft production. Under his direct supervision, for the first time in the domestic aircraft industry, the plasma-template method for manufacturing parts, assemblies, and assemblies was introduced, which ensured their complete interchangeability.
At the beginning of 1945, that is, when the war was still going on, the plant was ordered to produce a batch of passenger aircraft, by the end of the war 10 such aircraft were produced, and at the end of the war, the plant completely switched to peaceful rails, that is, to the production of passenger and transport versions of the Lee aircraft -2. In September 1945, the plant supplied the Polish government of national unity with 20 Li-2 aircraft in passenger and transport versions. This aircraft was produced until 1954, a total of 4,500 aircraft were produced.
In the 1950s, the plant mastered and mass-produced very reliable Il-14 passenger aircraft widely used in the Soviet Union and the Warsaw Pact countries, chief designer S.V. Ilyushin. In the conditions of the Arctic and Antarctic, they turned out to be the only operational vehicle. The first flight of the aircraft took place on March 14, 1954. In total, the plant produced 440 aircraft.
Starting from 1958, the plant began to develop and produce An-8 military transport wide-body aircraft designed by chief designer O.K. Antonova.
This machine differed sharply from the Il-14 aircraft in its design, purpose, increased takeoff weight, payload, and flight range. The aircraft was produced until 1961. The first flight took place on December 20, 1958. 151 aircraft were manufactured.
In 1960, the Ka-22 rotorcraft was built and tested by the chief designer N.I. Kamov.
The design of the rotorcraft had an original solution. Lifting and pulling screws were installed on each of the two engines. Five of these machines were built. Not serially produced. Cabins of Ka-26 helicopters were built until 1962. More than 100 cabins have been built for the helicopter plant in Kumertau.
Since 1961, the production of a large and more advanced amphibious transport aircraft An-12, chief designer O.K. Antonov, has been launched.
The machine was distinguished by high reliability and good performance. The first flight took place on July 21, 1961.
More than 830 aircraft have been produced. Production of the An-12 ceased in 1972.
In 1962, Tashkent aircraft builders began to master the production of an amphibious transport aircraft - the giant An-22 Antey.
The first flight took place on November 11, 1965. A real sensation was made by his first demonstration flight at the air show in La Bourget in 1965. First of all, it impressed the participants with its gigantic dimensions for those times: length - 56 meters, wingspan - 64 meters, and with its characteristics: payload - 60 tons, flight range - 5500 km, four engines of 12000 hp each, two powerful keels.
It made a huge impression on representatives of Western aviation firms. 68 such aircraft were produced.
In November 1967, branches of the Tashkent Aviation Plant named after. Chkalov in the years. Fergana and Andijan - Fergana Mechanical Plant, Andijan Mechanical Plant.
In October 1972, the aviation plant was transformed into the Tashkent Aviation Production Association named after. V.P. Chkalov (TAPOiCh), including: Tashkent Aviation Plant (TAZiCh), Fergana Mechanical Assembly Plant (FMZ), Andijan Mechanical Assembly Plant (AMZ) and Tashkent Oxygen Plant.
Simultaneously with the production of the An-22 aircraft, the development of the new Il-76 aircraft, chief designer S.V. Ilyushin, began. The first flight of the Il-76 took place on May 8, 1973.
During the production process, the Il-76 aircraft continued to improve, its characteristics and performance improved. Since 1973, about 1,000 Il-76 aircraft of all modifications have been produced. More than 100 aircraft are operated in Libya, India, Syria, Iraq, Algeria, Korea, China, Egypt, Cuba, Israel.
