Default Alexander Chichilanov 1970 - 2019

Yesterday our friend and colleague, heart and soul of many planes in DCS World Alexander Chichilanov has passed away. Aviation enthusiast, romantic and a dreamer, a military pilot second class who mastered multiple airplane types, after retirement from Air Force he worked as a project manager in Belsimtek with enthusiasm.

We were all very pleased to work with him, he inspired by his dedication and attitude, supported us with the warmth of his soul, part of which remained forever to live in his aircrafts in the DCS World.

He inspired us all with his cordial attitude, goal-oriented and focused approach. Soul is not dying, and part of his soul will be living in his planes in DCS World!

Alexander Vladimirovich Chichilanov

Born March 18th 1970

Since young age he liked parachute jumps, swimming and attended a high school with focus on sports. In 1987, he enrolled in Stavropol High Military Aviation College of Pilots and Navigators and later graduated the college with honors. He was a pilot in fighters’ regiments of VVS and PVO. During his service and training time, he flew in L-39, MiG-23UB, MiG-23ML, MiG-31BS. In 2007, he graduated from Gagarin Military Academy, Command Faculty, department of Tactical fighter aviation with excellence.

In 2008, he joined the department of tactical fighter aviation in Gagarin Military Academy as a lecturer; he was engaged in scientific research and staff training.

Since 2013 he worked in Belsimtek as the project manager for F-15C, F-86F, MiG-15BIS, F-5E, F/A-18C.

On ED Forums he was known as Foxhound_vva – laconic yet always ready to consult on different topics.

In the last year of his life, he bravely fought with cancer.

Alexander Chichilanov left a wife, son and daughter.

May he rest in peace!

I never knew Alexander, but by the tremendous response to this thread, I am quite sure that he was a great person, a great aviator, and an asset to this community. I find the previous post, attempting to sell something, to be disrespectful and offensive!

It is always so sad to see such wonderful people being torn from the middle of life. May the dear God let him grow wings and let him continue to enjoy his dream above the clouds.

My condolences to the family and all who had him as a friend.

Rest in peace

R.I.P. Alexander. If the quality of Belsimteks modules is any indicator of his work, then he was indeed a great guy. I will continue to enjoy his work for many more years to come!
