In the Voronezh region, on the basis of the airfield of the fighter aviation regiment, the pilots of the Su-35S fighters performed combat training missions for refueling in the air using integrated flight simulators.

During flights on simulators, the pilots worked out the technique of takeoffs and landings, maneuvering on a given course, approaching and docking with an air tanker.

To simplify docking navigation and refueling control, both the tanker and the aircraft being refueled are equipped with radio navigation systems, refueling warning lights and refueling elements lighting.

At the end of the week, at the base of the Buturlinovka airfield, the crews of the Su-35S, Su-30SM, MiG-31BM planes will work out practical actions for refueling in the air from the Il-78 carrier aircraft.
