The instructors of the Krasnodar Higher Military Aviation School of Pilots Lieutenant Colonel Ilya Afonin and Major Roman Cherny climbed the highest point of Russia and Europe – Mount Elbrus. It was possible to conquer the peak at 5642 m, despite the difficult weather conditions, frost, heavy wind and almost the absence of all the surrounding beauties of nature. Teachers hoisted the flag of Krasnodar VVAUL on the western summit of Elbrus.

During the preparatory acclimatization, we visited the Maiden Tears waterfalls, the observatory of the Russian Academy of Sciences at the Terskol peak, the Donguz-Orun river valley, the Donguzorunkel lake, the Cheget mountain peak, the Pastukhov rocks, the graves of the soldiers-liberators in the village of Terskol, the memorial to the Heroes of Defense, Elbrus the place where the highest hotel in the USSR was located
and Russia “Shelter of Eleven”.

By their example, the conquerors of the Elbrus summit showed and motivated the cadets of the school to dedication in achieving their goals, a healthy lifestyle and love for the Fatherland.
