Crimea will receive a civilian airport for conversion

The Russian government has formulated a roadmap for the development of the civilian sector of Belbek Airport in Sevastopol. The issue was discussed at a meeting with Deputy Prime Minister Dmitry Kozak in December with the participation of several departments. Reports about it Kommersant.


Crimea will receive a civilian airport for conversion


Now the military is based at the airport aviation.

According to the instructions following the meeting, in the near future “the Ministry of Economy, the Ministry of Defense, the FSB and the Government of Sevastopol, together with JSC“ Simferopol International Airport ”(JSC MAS, owned by Crimea), should approve plans to build the runway, airport complex and other necessary infrastructure in order to start operating the civilian sector of the airport in 2020 ”.

The newspaper reminds that “Belbek Airport was built in the 1941 year as a military airfield: in the times of the USSR and Ukraine fighter aviation was based there”. After the annexation of the Crimea to the Russian Federation, the Defense Ministry deployed the 38 th Fighter Regiment in Belbek. At the same time, a discussion began about the need for civilian use of the airport to solve the transport problems of the Crimea.

The press service of the IAC confirmed that they are conducting “preparatory work and operating within the framework of the federal program, which provides for the development of Belbek as a branch of Simferopol Airport”.

However, the expediency of developing Belbek as a civil airport raises doubts among experts: “the issue of transport accessibility of the Crimea no longer looks so critical, especially since in 2017 the flow of tourists to the peninsula decreased by 3,2% to 5,4 million.”

The main expert of the Institute of Economics of Transport and Transport Policy of the National Research University Higher School of Economics, Fedor Borisov, is sure that for the accessibility of the Crimea “one full-fledged airport in Simferopol is enough”. And by 2020, the Kerch Bridge, which will fundamentally improve the accessibility of the peninsula, should already earn at full capacity.

In his opinion, Balbec is not very well located: “in order to get to Sevastopol, you need to go around the bay or sail on the ferry, so the passenger traffic in any case will be limited.”

Borisov believes that Belbek is logical to use for receiving small passenger ships and private aircraft.

      The airport will be completed, but Belbek can be made jointly based. After the launch of the bridge, there will not be so many sorties ... The bridge will greatly relieve airfields.

      Well, you can simply add one more GDP to Belbek, and there will be both military and civilian. Although, as for me, they should be separate, military from civilian. Moreover, there will have to build a new road to the airport, today's one will obviously not be enough. And perhaps in the future also the railway. Secondly, the same Simferopol from the South Coast is an average of 50 kilometers. It’s not such a long distance to travel by public transport. It just needs normal roads and logistics.
      Perhaps you should first set up normal roads and junctions in Sevastopol. To build something like the Moscow Ring Road or the Ring Road (in St. Petersburg) on ​​the outskirts of the city and on the north side of the Sevastopol Bay, for example, to the beaches in Lyubimovka, otherwise you can’t drive there normally. Anyway, in Crimea, set up more sanatoriums and hotels like in Turkey, for example.

        There is no need to build a new runway; they will update and extend the existing one. Joint basing is not so scary; however, Perm and Novosibirsk, for example, coexist somehow in more loaded ports.

          In Komsomolsk at the airport are SU-24, all fighters are in Dzemgah at their own separate airport. and in Sevastopol Fighters. A big difference in plaque and response speed. All the same, Sevastopol is at the forefront of our borders, and Komsomolsk is practically in the rear at 200 km. And it still depends on traffic, if you plan to use Belbek as government or for special flights, this is one thing, and if tourists use 10 airplanes an hour or more is different.

        In Crimea, the question of "where" to resettle is not worth it in any way. Rather, the question is how much is this relocation. But there are so many empty airfields in Crimea that they can receive air forces from all over the country, we don’t have so many planes. This is even taking into account those destroyed, like Carancut. Offhand - Saki, Guards, Kirov, Dzhankoy, Belbek, Donuzlav, Kacha. There are still dead (but can be restored, not everything is lost) Khersones, Bagerovo, Oktyabrskoe.

        Why should they relocate? There are dual-purpose airfields and both military and civil aviation are based on them ..

        Yes, no matter where it remains. On the belbek, the reconstruction strip closes, that's all. There is no conversion there is a joint basing.

    Dabolim Airport (GOA, India), civilians also share with the military ... As a result, it works for a limited time per day, there may be unexpected breaks for the departure of military aircraft, you cannot enter or meet the airport terminal, you cannot arrive in advance ... ONE BIG GOVERNIK as a result !!! HOWEVER, you need a separate new, modern, purely civilian airfield, if the existing one cannot cope ... Moreover, the costs will probably be comparable.

      In Adler, the same thing. Well, there they just expanded the civilian airport, made a closed zone. And they don’t interfere with each other. Actually, we have all civilian, dual-use airports.

      Something here the Indians were smart. We have a Perm-based airfield in Perm. In Novosibirsk too. No problem. Come when you want, leave when you want. Do you want at least sit around the clock at the airport. All take off and land on schedule.

        The Indians have entry only on printed (!!!) tickets and on a passport. Even accompanying travel agencies cannot enter. And the runway is one for all, so sometimes you have to wait.

          Well, I say the hands of the Indians are crooked. In Perm, we have a military sector on one side of the runway, a civilian on the other. Many civilian personnel are not even aware of the presence of military aircraft at the airport. A runway is one for all. No problem. I pulled the MiG from its half, got out of gear - left. Bobik taxied out of the civilian half, got out of the way - left. So with a ladder - they do not interfere with each other.

    Well, right, a good idea for small aircraft and business class aircraft. They will earn money to maintain the take-off and infrastructure of the base. At least partially. Not all of the money from the budget to drive on households. And those. Security.

    There are two options. Belbek or Chersonesos. Belbek is further, but from it there is an excellent highway, already built. Khersones is much closer, but there it is necessary to solve the issue of accessibility by road - the road should be expanded explicitly. Well, another problem in Chersonesos is still not to build a runway with a length of 2200 meters, but in Belbek there is already 3000.
    Apparently, all the same, Belbek ... My opinion is that Sevastopol needs its own airport. If Belbek, then you can do a joint basing. What is the problem? This is exactly what we did here - on the one side of the runway there are warriors, on the other - civilians. Peace and quiet.

    Belbek was dual subordination in Soviet times. I often flew there with the USSR Air Force Command and with foreign delegations. It was very convenient to provide parking. We created airfield equipment for ICAO category III. Here is a Jew friend Poroshenko quickly privatized him. Everything is back to square one. In Crimea, we had 26 airfields and airports. I have the honor.

    Of course, you need to have a backup airfield, not enough of what can be the main one, or the weather, or other emergency situations, so that the ship can board and serve passengers .. Of course, Belbek is pointed for VIP staff, so there is nothing for the Okhlons to do there, but experience operating the Donetsk airport when the Tatar (Akhmetov) decided at the prompt of a friend Kolesnik (Hyundai) to break up the oldest airport terminal and build for himself, well, for Yanukovych, the VIP peron ended with the new make-up of the airport orb. 2 roads to nowhere in case of accidents and other things for a length of 3 km

    Sevastopol from Simferopol is an hour and a half by bus (100 km.) .. It’s more logical and cheaper to start a round-the-clock trolley bus line than to build another airport .. Apparently, someone under the guise of “taking care of citizens” is trying to make money again " green cabbage "..

    Why should the opinion of a fosterling from the nest of liberals be brought here? Almost 500 thousand people live in Sevastopol, this is comparable with the population of Stavropol and Astrakhan, where there are full-fledged airports. And here it turns out that the Sevastopol residents, in order to fly to Moscow and other cities of Russia, have to fly around, the devil knows where for a hundred kilometers! Following the logic of this feeding out of HSE, you need to close the airports in Astrakhan and Stavropol. Let the Astrakhan fly out of Volgograd, and the Stavropolites from Krasnodar.

    That is really on Chersonese, the civil port would be in the subject. The main stream is still to Simferol, and 5-6 a day of flights with a glide path over the sea would be very useful for Sevastopol residents and Kamyshov would not be particularly strained.

    Many where in Russia regional airports within the city are conveniently. In Belgorod, for example.

    The keyword in the heading is conversion. Under Ukraine, it was justified to base fighter aircraft of the Armed Forces there (the second regiment is Kirovskoe). But now, having Kachu, Guards, Novofedorovka (Saki) at hand, it’s too much (it’s hard to carry, it’s a pity to leave).
    The terminal was repaired there in two thousandth, the air traffic control service is working, the highway to Sevastopol is excellent, the best in Crimea.
    Need a decision at the top. And the tops, like that expert Borisov, abut, sawing money. A quarter of the population of Crimea, almost the entire Black Sea Fleet, Sevastopol, will be grateful, if, accordingly, a quarter of the flights are mainly. directions will be from Belbek.
    So he also dragged a bridge here!
