Survival Of A Pilot In A Forest

Posted on April 10, 2012 by kulichik

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.

According to the legend, soon after the helicopter flies into the air pilots get an alarm indicating there is a fire in the engine which can not be extinguished. Later the 2nd engine is burning again. The only decision is to leave the burning helicopter.

The helicopter took several crews aboard.

Here they imitate a jump from a plane at the height of 100 m. That is how reliability of the parachutes was demonstrated.

    A great skill for all the Russian pilots, in case they ever fight a war against another nation. They will need toknow how to survive when they are shot down.

    I suspect that this is a great skill to have, even if you are not at war…Aircraft can fail at some pretty inconvenient times, just ask the two US Navy F 18 pilots who ejected over Virginia Beach lately!

    At least no one was killed when their aircraft landed on the apartment complex.
