In the Leningrad Region, over the water area of ​​the Gulf of Finland, pilots of the army aviation of the Western Military District conducted a training session to extinguish wildfires.

During the training of the crews of the Mi-8 multipurpose helicopters of a separate helicopter regiment, the elimination of simulated fires of varying complexity with the use of spillways was practiced, as well as aerial reconnaissance of the “fire” area with flights at an altitude of 50-100 m.

Water discharge from the spillway device occurs at a speed of up to 50 km / h and covers an area up to 20 m.

The training was due to the onset of a fire hazardous season in the Leningrad Region.
