The First Children’s Aviation and Space Salon – DAKS took place in Zhukovsky. The partner of the event, among others, was the All-Russian Children and Youth Military Patriotic Movement “YUNARMIA”. The holiday will last for two days and the Yunarmeys take an active part in it. They made a vivid presentation of the Movement, distributed brochures about the organization to their peers and told about the events in which they participated. The guys offered the DAKS guests a historical quiz, the winners of which received gifts (notepads, pens and phone cases).
“Our guys not only told DAKS guests about the Movement, but they themselves took an active part in master classes and competitions, watched pilot competitions and demonstration performances in sports aerobatics. Many young soldiers are attracted to the profession of a pilot. It is for these boys and girls that UNARMIA plans to create an Initial Flight Training Center so that in the future they will have all the advantages for admission to the relevant universities, ”said Anton Kuznetsov, Deputy Chief of the General Staff for Project Activities of the UNARMIA Air Force.
Now in many regions of Russia, under the Yunarmeysky detachments, there are aircraft modeling circles, the guys study the history of aviation, get acquainted with the biographies of famous pilots, and some even jump with a parachute. It is clear that the topics related to aviation arouse genuine interest among the Yunarmeys. Within the framework of DAKS, the activists of the Movement interviewed designers, pilots and cosmonauts.
The culmination of the aviation holiday was the admission to the “UNARMIA” and the performance of the “Young Patriots” ensemble. Hero of the Soviet Union, Hero of the Russian Federation, pilot-cosmonaut of the USSR, President of the ANO “Flying Generation” Sergei Krikalev was ordained to the ranks of the Movement. By the way, it was he who initiated the project.
On the last day of DAKS’s work, a charity event for children and adults with limited mobility will be held. The parafest will include a competitive program, riding on airplanes, paragliding and balloons. Yunarmeytsy will take an active part in it as “mentors”.
DAKS is the world’s first aerospace show organized for children. The event was named after Igor Petrovich Volk, pilot-cosmonaut Hero of the Soviet Union and honored test pilot. The total flying time of the Wolf is over 7000 hours. Igor Petrovich was the first to test the Russian manned spacecraft “Buran” and was preparing to launch it into near-earth orbit. The wolf, having made a space flight as part of the crew of a spacecraft, sat at the helm of a fighter jet, and then a passenger plane, thereby proving the ability of a person to bring a controlled spacecraft to earth.
Recall that the All-Russian youth military-patriotic movement “UNARMIA” was created in 2016 at the initiative of the Ministry of Defense and with the support of the President of Russia. Now in its ranks there are more than 850 thousand participants – the most daring, the most courageous, the most initiative guys. The main task of the movement is patriotic education, as well as the physical, intellectual and social development of young people.
