Young pilots of the Erebuni air base of the Southern Military District (YuVO), stationed in Armenia, began flying in high mountainous terrain.

The servicemen underwent additional training in performing flight missions in simple and difficult weather conditions in flat and mountainous terrain under the guidance of experienced instructors.

During the introductory course, the servicemen worked out various elements of piloting: takeoff, hovering, approaching and moving near the ground, vertical descent, landing and landing over a military airfield.

Upon completion of the special course, the pilots passed the tests, passed certification and received admission to perform independent flights and combat training missions in mountainous terrain.
