Ivolga wig – multi-functional, all-weather, high-speed, economical vehicle.
Ivolga wig – multi-functional, all-weather, high-speed, economical vehicle intended for cargo and passenger traffic in coastal waters and inland waters, including ice-covered, as well as on land in off-road conditions and snow cover. Ivolga wig created by aerodynamic configuration “composite wing”, applied to the outstanding aircraft designer R. Bartini, allowing use as a “screen effect” and the technology “boost”.

Wig Oriole – multi-functional, all-weather, high-speed, economical vehicle intended for cargo and passenger traffic in coastal waters and inland waters, including ice-covered, as well as on land in off-road conditions and snow cover.
Ivolga wig created by aerodynamic configuration “composite wing”, applied to the outstanding aircraft designer R. Bartini. This scheme allows you to more fully realize the unique properties of the wig and use as “ground effect” and the technology “boost”. “Ground effect” appears to increase aerodynamic lift with simultaneous reduction of aerodynamic drag when travelling at low altitudes (less than the chord of the wing) as the result of a dynamic air cushion between the body-center section and surface movement. Technology “blowing” is to create an air cushion during discharge of air from the front air screws located under the bottom of the case-center section that provides contact-free movement at the height of 0÷0.3 m during taxiing and acceleration.
Ivolga wig by the classification of the International Maritime organization (MO) correspond to the type “b” and have the unique ability to use several modes of movement: flying, gliding, swimming, sliding on ice and snow, as well as to independently launching and beach (slope 1:10).
It provides speeds up to 220 km/h and high maneuverability. In addition, the device is able to move not only on the height of the “screen effect”, but also short-term to increase it to “jump” over obstacles.
Ivolga wig have high security in mind: small height movement (no “drop height”) and ability to bypass obstacles to the side and from above; the possibility of further movement when one of the two engines and duplication systems. Lack of pitching from exposure to the excitement of water and atmospheric disturbances ensures that the motion of wig high comfort for crew and passengers.
Ivolga wig successfully passed a series of winter and summer tests in the conditions of the reservoirs of the Moscow region, Siberia rivers, lakes Baikal and Ladoga, Caspian, Baltic and Black seas.
– wig Ivolga EK-12 (mass production),
– wig Ivolga EK-30 (30 passengers or 3.2 tons of cargo), class “river-sea” (pre-release)
– sea wig Ivolga EK-100 (106 seats or to 11.0 tonnes) (development),
– wig Ivolga EK-150 (150t of cargo or passengers 1290), ocean class (development).
The winged Oriole EC-12:
The winged Ivolga EK-12 is designed for use as passenger or light truck (passenger and cargo) of the vessel.
The winged Ivolga EK-12 is simple to operate and is available to the mass consumer requirements for the crew, similar to the skippers speed boats and yachts. Maintenance of the airplane and its systems performed by the crew. Labor costs for maintenance are: after 200 running hours – 16 person hours. after 1000 running hours – 32 people an hour. For use in the harsh conditions of Siberia and the Far East, the ekranoplan is supplied with equipment life and energy supply with autonomy of at least 24 hours. It is possible to equip the apparatus with air conditioning for use in the southern regions.
