On the basis of the fighter aviation regiment in Karelia, training was held for specialists of the parachute services of the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and air defense in preparation for the army championship in parachuting.

In the course of the exercises, the military personnel improved such landing skills as landing accuracy on confined areas, long jumps, planning and group jumps.

The skills of individual and group exercises were practiced: biathlon (landing accuracy and acrobatics), dome and group acrobatics.

More than 40 servicemen were involved in parachute jumps, who performed at least 4 jumps per training from a Mi-8MTV-5 helicopter.

In the future, a team of parachutists will be formed from the servicemen who have shown the best results, which will represent the interests of the Western Military District at the all-army championship in parachuting.
