9 Military Trainings in the Flight Center

Military Trainings in the Flight Center

Posted on July 17, 2011 by team

We’ve already visited the flight training center in Torzhok. Nowadays the center uses the helicopters Mil Mi-24P, Mi-24PN, Mi-26 and Mi-8 of different modifications. Probably soon the Mi-35M will be added to the center armoury, but pilots consider this profound modernisation of the Mi-24 as a transition version between the Mil Mi-24 and the Mi-28N/Ka-52. Moreover a group of Brazilian pilots studies in the center. Recently Brazil bought several Mi-35, the export modification of the Mi-24.

This helicopter is used by the flight group “Berkuts” (golden eagles) that performs difficult flights on military helicopters.

Machines of this group differ from the rest Mi-24P only in color, but they all are used for every day flights.

Glasses are, of course, an indispensable thing, but they worsen the sight.

New helmets are specially adapted for helicopters.
