The pilots of the army aviation regiment stationed in the Novosibirsk region, the air force and air defense unit of the Central Military District (TsVO) performed the first training flights in 2022 on Mi-24 attack helicopters and Mi-8 combat transport helicopters.

Practical actions were practiced at an airfield in the Novosibirsk region. Before the start of the training, each crew underwent theoretical training. Experienced flight instructors taught young lieutenants about piloting and emergency procedures, analyzing each of them in detail in practice. The readiness of helicopters for departure was carried out by the engineering and technical staff.

During training flights, the crews practiced taking off, maneuvering in the air and landing aircraft.

In the course of further training, the crews will have to master the elements of complex aerobatics: piloting at extremely low and maximum permissible altitudes, maneuvering during air combat training.

6 Mi-24 and Mi-8 helicopters, more than 80 military personnel from among the flight and engineering staff are involved in training flights.
