The station named for Valery Chkalov (1904-1938) - Russian aircraft test pilot and a Hero of the Soviet Union (1936). Valery Chkalov became a test pilot in the early 1930s. He developed several new figures of aerobatics. In 1936 and 1937, he participated in several ultra long flights, including a 63-hour flight from Moscow, Soviet Union to Vancouver, Washington, United States via the North Pole on an Tupolev ANT-25 plane (June 18–20, 1937), a non-stop distance of 8811 kilometres (5475 miles). This flight pioneered the polar air route from Europe to the American Pacific Coast. Valery Chkalov was killed on December 15, 1938 while piloting a prototype of the Polikarpov I-180 fighter, which crashed during a test flight:

It became the fifth "Chkalovskaya" Metro station in the world. The Metro stations with same name are already exist in Nizhny Novgorod (opened in 1985), Tashkent (1987), Moscow (1995) and Saint Petersburg (1997):

The original idea of the station are lights in the floor along the safety line, which light up like "running line" during the approach of a train (like at the runway of airport):

The track walls are remind fuselage from inside:

There were installed "portholes" with the portraits of the members of legendary Soviet crew, who participated in a 63-hour flight from Moscow, Soviet Union to Vancouver, Washington, United States via the North Pole. The crew members were Valery Chkalov (command pilot), Georgy Baydukov (co-pilot) and Alexander Belyakov (flight navigator):

Valery Chkalov was originally scheduled to land at an airstrip in nearby Portland, Oregon, but redirected at the last minute to Vancouver's Pearson Airfield, Washington. America welcomed Chkalov and his crew enthusiastically. Numerous receptions were given in their honour; crowds of people saluted them in every city they visited. They saw seas of flowers and smiles, hordes of reporters everywhere. President Franklin D. Roosevelt himself received them in White House and greeted standing. Today there is a street named for Chkalov in Vancouver. On June 20, 1975 an obelisk was erected at Pearson Field commemorating this event. Georgy Baydukov (1907-1994), Alexander Belyakov (1897-1982) and Chkalov's son Igor were honorary guests at opening ceremony:

The report about Chkalov's flight from Soviet newspapers of that years:

The station was decorated to commemorate 75-anniversary of flight:
