In the Leningrad Region, at the airfield of the mixed transport aviation regiment of the Leningrad Army of the Air Force and Air Defense of the Western Military District, training flights were carried out in difficult meteorological conditions at night.

Crews of Tu-134M, An-72, An-12, An-26 transport aircraft and Mi-8 multipurpose helicopters worked out piloting elements in conditions of limited visibility due to low cloudiness and precipitation during the day and at night, with a strong crosswind and heavy rainfall. In such conditions, the crew of the aircraft does not have the ability to visually pilot the aircraft and proceeds to instrument piloting.

A special role in the training program was given to landing an aircraft, as the most difficult element of piloting in conditions of limited visibility.
