Pilots of a separate army aviation unit of the Eastern Military District (VVO), stationed in the Trans-Baikal Territory, improved their skills in operating Mi-8AMTSh Terminator multi-purpose helicopters at extremely low altitudes during scheduled training flights.

The pilots performed tasks on the technique of piloting combat vehicles at altitudes – up to 50 meters above the ground. Such actions make it possible to hide combat vehicles from enemy fire as much as possible, using the natural shelters of the area, and to most effectively use army aviation.

The pilots also worked out the tasks of searching for and rescuing conditionally injured, and their evacuation in hover mode. In addition, during the training flights, the military personnel conducted a passing aerial reconnaissance of the area.
