Anito-1 (Aviavnito-1) was designed for participation in the Light Safe Airplane contest, called by Osoaviakhim in 1934. Low wing monoplane with 3-seat enclosed cabin could be used for liaison, sport, tourism. Cabin floor had a hatch for parachuting people or cargo.

Fuselage - variable-thickness wooden monocoque of oval cross-section. Two-spar wing (plywood skinning) carried ailerons and large-span landing flap. Ailerons and tail controls were covered with fabric. Fixed main undercarriage was fitted with airdynamic fairings. Rubber cord shock absorbers - hidden in the fuselage.

Being of wooden design, Anito-1 was somewhat large for 100hp engine, but clean lines and high assembly quality guaranteed high performance. Strength and reliability of construction were tested in the 1935 (September 5 to 9). Aircraft participated in the circuit flight endurance contest and finished second.
