The crews of the Tu-142 long-range anti-submarine aircraft of the Air Force and Air Defense Association of the Northern Fleet will continue their practice of long-term flights in the operationally important areas of the Atlantic and Arctic Ocean. This task will be one of the priorities for the pilots of this type of aircraft in the new year.
During 2021, the crews of Tu-142 anti-submarine aircraft repeatedly performed missions in the international airspace over the Arctic and Atlantic.
The average duration of flights to the far sea zone for anti-submarine pilots was about 10 hours, and the average distance traveled per flight exceeded 7 thousand kilometers.
In addition to performing air patrols and other assigned tasks, the pilots carried out ice reconnaissance and monitoring of the situation in the Arctic.
All flights were performed in strict accordance with international rules and treaties on the use of airspace without violating the borders of coastal states.
