The crews of the Mi-24 attack helicopters and the Mi-8 transport helicopters of the Baltic Fleet naval aviation, based at the military airfield in the Donskoye village in the Kaliningrad region, conducted scheduled training flights.

As part of combat training missions, the pilots of the Mi-24 and Mi-8 helicopters performed takeoff and landing, performed flights to a given square of the sea to reveal the surface situation, and also carried out training approaches to attacks against ground targets of a simulated enemy.

Night flights took a special place in the training program for helicopter crews. During the night, the helicopter pilots performed such elements as instrument approach, flight over the sea and air cover for ship and land groupings.

In total, about 10 helicopter units of both modifications were involved in the exercise.
