Then, at the squadron level, combat training activities were carried out, then the training of aviation regiments and brigades was checked. And the crown of combat training in the 2020 academic year was the participation of army aviation in the strategic command-staff exercise Kavkaz-2020. It involved not only the crews of the combined air force and air defense of the Southern Military District. But also the crews of similar associations of the Western and Central military districts, ”said the head of the army aviation of the Aerospace Forces, Colonel Igor Romanov.
Army aviation dates back to 1948, when the first helicopter squadron was formed in Serpukhov. Initially, the helicopters performed only auxiliary tasks – delivering mail, reports, adjusting artillery fire, aerial reconnaissance. In the future, with the improvement of tactics, methods of warfare, helicopters and aircraft weapons of destruction, the tasks of army aviation expanded. At the present stage, being part of the Air Force of the Aerospace Forces, army aviation solves a wide range of tasks – these are fire, airborne transport, reconnaissance and special tasks. Today, army aviation is armed with modern aviation systems, is a highly mobile means, acts as one of the main means of achieving goals in armed conflicts, solves not only combat and special tasks, but also tasks to eliminate the consequences of natural and man-made disasters.
