MIL OSI Translation. Region: Russian Federation –
In the Kaliningrad region, the command of the Baltic Fleet made the dream of a six-year-old boy Dima Mironov from Baltiysk, who wanted to make a helicopter flight, a reality.
Becoming a pilot is Dima’s old dream, but a serious illness does not allow his wish to come true. Dima’s parents, trying to make a special gift for their child, turned to the command of the Baltic Fleet with a request to organize the boy’s flight in a military helicopter.
A short excursion was arranged for Dima at the Donskoye military airfield before the flight. He was told about the aviation equipment that is in service with the mixed helicopter regiment of the Baltic Fleet naval aviation, then Dima sat in the cockpit of the rotorcraft, presenting himself as a military pilot. After that, the Mi-8 flew along the coast of the Kaliningrad region, the helicopter route also passed over his native Baltic.
The one-hour flight in the air ended with a landing at the Donskoye military airfield. In the air and on the ground next to Dima and his mother was the commander of the Baltic Fleet naval aviation, Major General Vadim Morozov.
At the end of the flight, Dima presented the commander of the Mi-8 crew with a small helicopter and a pilot figure, made of plasticine with his own hand. In turn, Major General Vadim Morozov presented Dima Mironov with New Year’s gifts in memory of the perfect flight, including a helicopter designer and a memorable address.
In December 2018, the commander of the Baltic Fleet, Admiral Alexander Nosatov, already took a boy Arthur with a serious genetic disease from Baltiysk on a working trip on a Mi-8 helicopter. Then the boy really liked the flight. While parked at the landing site, he communicated with the crew, sat in the commander’s seat, tried on a helmet, and reacted very positively. Arthur himself said then that he was having fun.
