In the same year, “DOBROLET” whose primary aim to improve the civil aviation in the USSR was introduced to fulfill certain demands in economy of the country.
Aviation was started to be used in good manners such as transferring loads, sending posts and mostly for transporting passengers by Western countries. Old warplanes were repaired and better equipped by Russians to keep peace.

The 6th of May was recorded as the official opening day of the Olympic Games XXII.
