Last year, army aviation crews of the Air Force and Air Defense formation of the Eastern Military District on Mi-8amtsh and Mi-26 helicopters completed tasks in the Russian Arctic zone.

Military pilots delivered personnel, food, fuel, materiel to radar units on Wrangel Island and Cape Otto Schmidt.

The solution of problems was complicated by the harsh conditions of this winter with strong winds and very low temperatures.

This year, the crews of the Mi-8amtsh and Mi-26 helicopters are planning to carry various cargoes that exceed the volume of the previous year.
