The mountain airfield of the aviation squadron of the separate transport mixed aviation regiment of the Central Military District (CVD) in 2021 will become the main site for conducting exercises with the crews of army aviation on the conduct of military operations in mountainous terrain.

The unique location of the airfield – in the foothills of the Western Sayan – makes it possible to use the technical characteristics of combat vehicles in full and improve the skills of piloting flight personnel in mountainous terrain. Now the crews of the army aviation are practicing the elements of mountain training at airfields in the Altai Territory, which require additional equipment during exercises. The mountain airfield in the Republic of Tyva has all the necessary infrastructure for regular training flights and tactical flight exercises without additional support for the flight process, it allows to increase the intensity of training and increase the number of simultaneously involved crews.

“Due to the development of the airfield in Kyzyl, already in the new academic year, we gain the opportunity to more actively involve in the development of piloting techniques in difficult terrain conditions, flight personnel from among graduates of flight universities,” emphasized Colonel Vyacheslav Dmitryuk, head of the military aviation department of the Central Military District.

The Central Military District is armed with attack helicopters Mi-24P, transport-combat Mi-8MTV5-1, Mi-8AMTShV Terminator and the world’s largest transport helicopter Mi-26. Army aviation crews are regularly involved in various exercises, performing missions for aerial reconnaissance, covering ground forces and fire damage to a simulated enemy, as well as participating in the implementation of state space programs and eliminating the consequences of natural and man-made disasters.
