Military pilots to receive new airstrip for training after exercise in the Orenburg region

1

Airstrip, first deployed on large-scale exercises in the Orenburg region, will remain after the end of the maneuvers for training pilots, the commander of the 14th Army Air Force and Air Defence, Lieutenant-General Viktor Sevostyanov told journalists on Friday.
“By decision of the commander of the Central Military District, I was told to keep the combat readiness of the airstrip,” – Sevostyanov said, noting that the airfield will be used to train pilots.

According to him, for a safe takeoff and landing aircrafts should climb or fall just above the aerodrome where the plane taking off is guaranteed not to be able to fire on enemy ground.
