Helicopter-free parachute landing training near Yakutsk was carried out from a Mi-8 helicopter of the Yakut branch of the Khabarovsk Aviation Rescue Center of the Russian Emergencies Ministry.

According to the training plan, employees of the emergency department worked out descents to a limited area from a height of 20-30 meters during the day and night.

The day before the practical training, the rescuers passed a theoretical test for knowledge of safety requirements during descents, and only after passing the tests they received admission to the practical part.

Before starting the descent, the rescue equipment and descenders were checked. During the landing, the issuer controlled the descent of the rescuers, constantly maintained visual contact with him, as well as communication with the pilots to correct the aircraft in the air.

“During the training, all the shortcomings that need to be paid attention to are revealed. That is why we organize such events. Often, rescuers have to land in hard-to-reach areas to carry out search and rescue operations. As part of the exercise, 11 aircraft ascents were carried out, during which 153 descents were made by rescuers, ”said Roman Lysenko, 1st class rescuer of the paratrooper unit of the Yakutsk search and rescue squad of the regional department of the Russian Emergencies Ministry.
