The crew of the frigate “Admiral Essen” in the Black Sea conducted an exercise to receive the Ka-27PL helicopter on the deck.

Having successfully landed on board, the helicopter crew checked the ship’s crews that ensure the actions of the carrier-based aircraft.

In total, in accordance with the flight assignment, the helicopter pilots of the Black Sea Fleet Naval Aviation, in cooperation with the frigate crew, worked more than 10 take-offs and landings on the deck of the ship on the move and while anchored at sea.

Landing on a ship is the most difficult type of training for flight personnel of naval aviation, first the crews practice airfield flights, then cross-country flights, and only after that they are allowed to land on ships’ helipads.
