At the Krechevitsy airfield, rescuers, together with the crew of the Ka-32 helicopter, worked out the skills of descent to an open area from heights of 10 m and 20 m, lifting with a winch to evacuate the “victims” on board the helicopter, as well as parachute-free landing using roller descenders (RMS ).

Parachute-free airborne assault from a helicopter in the “hovering” mode is an important element of the training of rescuers. It is intended for disembarking a group of rescuers in hard-to-reach areas where it is impossible to land an aircraft or parachute rescuers.

It is very important to hone the algorithm, because in real conditions rescuers will have to board the helicopter with the victim as well.

Participated in the training 20 people from the Novgorod search and rescue team, 7 people from the specialized fire and rescue unit of the Main Directorate of EMERCOM of Russia in the Novgorod region. During the training, 55 descents were made.

The event, which is part of the professional training program for rescuers, is held in order to improve the technologies of search and rescue operations and improve the professional skills of the Ministry of Emergency Situations.
