Pilots of a separate shipborne fighter aviation regiment of the Northern Fleet completed relocation from the Murmansk region to the Crimea to improve flight skills during training at the ground engineering and technical aviation complex (NITKA).

The flight from the airfield to Severomorsk-3 to the Saki airfield took several days due to unfavorable meteorological conditions along the flight route. In total, several combat and combat training naval fighters MiG-29K and MiG-29KUB, as well as flight and technical personnel, were relocated to the Crimea.

Fighter pilots in military ranks from senior lieutenant to lieutenant colonel will begin their training next week under the guidance of their commander, Colonel Vladimir Kokurin.

Earlier (in September), pilots of the Northern Fleet’s fighter air regiment on Su-33 aircraft underwent a training program for flights from the deck of an aircraft carrier on the NITKA simulator. Their preparation lasted more than a month. During this time, seven pilots, including five young pilots of carrier-based aviation, managed to prepare for landing on the deck of the aircraft carrier. All of them took off from the ship’s springboard on a Su-33 fighter and independently landed on a ground simulator with an aircraft finisher cable hooked.
