Last year graduates underwent additional training for new types of aviation equipment, including the use of multimedia dynamostatic simulators. After passing the test, the pilots were assigned to the crews and began flying under the guidance of experienced instructors – first class pilots.

Flights took place both during the day and at night. In total, more than 30 flights were made.
