Cadets of the Syzran branch of the Air Force Academy worked in the Samara region for the combat use of Mi-8 and Mi-24 helicopters.

Practical actions with piloting transport-combat and attack helicopters took place within the framework of the educational process. They were attended by about 90 cadets, including the foreign faculty, where representatives of the near and far abroad study. All actions were carried out under the close supervision of experienced instructors. The cadets practiced firing aircraft cannons and launching unguided rockets. Also, the cadets performed flights along the planned routes and landed on conventionally unprepared sites.

Future officers were allowed to take practical actions after passing exams on special simulators.
