In January Russian military pilots got a chance to implement their survival skills under extreme conditions in practice. They concentrated on many issues such as survival in a deserted area, obtainment of food, fire and water, etc.
During one year specialists of the aviation base have theoretical classes finding out how to leave a plane with a parachute.
Apart from the theory, every pilot must complete a couple of jumps during the 1st year of education. Otherwise, he won't be allowed to fly.
