Specialists of the search and rescue and parachute service of the Central Military District (CVO) during the training in the Krasnoyarsk Territory began to prepare for participation in search and rescue support for launches and landings of Soyuz MS spacecraft, which will take place as part of the implementation of the state space program in 2022.

As part of the gathering, the personnel of aviation rescuers began training for participation in four operations to ensure the safety of launches and landings of spacecraft. In the conditions of the Siberian taiga, military rescuers will practice parachute landing from a Mi-8 helicopter from extremely low and medium altitudes from 200 to 2500 meters to limited areas, as well as parachute landing from a helicopter. In addition, young aircrew will undergo parachute training during the training camp. The lieutenants will work out the forced abandonment of the aircraft and landing with the help of the D-1-5U parachute.

The training camp, which will end in the first half of February, involves young flight personnel, aviation rescuers, paramedics and pilots of the Mi-8 military transport helicopter. In 2022, aviation rescuers will take part in search and rescue support for the launches of the Soyuz MS-21 and Soyuz MS-22 spacecraft, as well as the landing of the descent vehicles of the Soyuz MS-19 and Soyuz MS-21 spacecraft.
