Crews of formations and military units of army and tactical aviation based in the Rostov and Volgograd regions, Crimea, Stavropol and Krasnodar regions take part in the competition.

Pilots perform competitive tasks on Su-25SM attack aircraft, Su-30SM fighters, Su-34 fighter-bombers, Ka-52 Alligator and Mi-35 attack helicopters, as well as Mi-8AMTSh Terminator transport and combat helicopters.

During the competition, the crews need to go through a given route with a length of about 200 km, reach three turning points at the specified time, and also overcome the air defense system.

When performing flight missions, the pilots will launch unguided rockets, drop bombs and fire from a 30-mm aircraft cannon at ground targets that imitate military equipment and manpower of the enemy.

In total, more than 200 aviation crews of the Southern Military District take part in the qualifying events of the first stage of the competition.
