The Tu-160 strategic missile carrying bomber crews worked out training tasks on complex simulators in the Saratov long-range aviation large unit
Prior to the flight and tactical exercises at Engels airfield flight crews performed combat training tasks on the simulators of the Tu-160 aircraft.
The main task for the servicemen was to practice their actions in case of emergency situations, aircraft equipment failures, engine failure. In addition, the pilots worked out the destruction of command posts of the opposing force using cruise missiles during training flights on simulators.
Theoretical part of the training was held in the class of theoretical training of engineer and flight crews, and practical part - directly on complex aircraft simulators.
Realistic image displayed on the simulator's circular panoramic screen, background sound and identical control, communication and navigation facilities allow pilots to be better prepared for their functional tasks. It allows them to acquire necessary skills and to improve their proficiency as well.
