    ... Aviadarts-2018 Competition Launched ...

    Still, initially the correct idea.
    Pilots, navigators compete - they get an incentive to be more professional.
    Thanks to such competitions, the best are revealed, the command sees who was born with wings.
    One of these pilots was our hero, Roman Nikolayevich Filipov, a member of Aviadarts in 2013, where he took 2nd place among attack aircraft.

      Andrey, believe me on the word-stimulus, it was probably in the first year of the event, when everyone believed that everything would be fair, for the next year, nobody really wanted to fly there. Window dressing and fraud are continuous. I took part in this competition 2 times, as the main crew (I was still a pravak) and in reserve. If you think that I'm saying nonsense, talk with other pilots (if you have friends) they will say the same to you. The window dressing is continuous, and the materiel part is actually thinned out (especially large ones), last year the crews in China were appointed before the start of the 2nd stage, they said to prepare foreign passports and so on ... Motherland chose you and, ironically, at 2m the guys didn’t show themselves at the stage, and it doesn’t matter, they still went, do you think this is objective?

        I am not familiar with combat pilots. My specificity is slightly different.
        I admit that it is.
        Skews and companionship have a place to be, the most important thing is to avoid them whenever possible.

          Just why then blow all this? The year before last, a guy from Kursk for a moment 29cm smoked the "Lipetsk Falcon" for su30cm, so you know what they said? Mig29 cannot defeat su30, victory (well, the car too, which is important) was given to breadcrumbs. It’s as if cars are competing, not those who drive them. In general, okay, it started and started, good luck to the guys.

            I agree.
            Most importantly, pilots on both the MiG-29 and Su-30 should be ready to emerge victorious in a real battle.

              This is yes, the most important thing.
