Shavrov Sh-1

Vladimir B. Shavrov had worked as a member of the OMOS design bureau from 1925, and after two years there set out to design and build a light general-purpose amphibian flying-boat, the Shavrov Sh-1. A sesquiplane, the Sh-1 had its main wing strut-mounted above the single-step hull and stabilising floats were incorporated into the lower stub-wing. The main wheels of the landing gear were retracted manually. Flown for the first time on 21 June 1929, the Sh-1 performed well, attaining a maximum speed of 126km/h on its 63kW Walter radial engine. The Sh-1 remained a prototype, being developed into the slightly larger and refined Sh-2.
