This year, the Ministry of Defense will commission the Steppe airfield, located in Transbaikalia, according to News.

In Transbaikalia, the reconstruction of the airfield "Step"


After reconstruction, the airfield will receive one of the longest runways in the world (more than 3 km) and will be able to receive any type of military aircraft. Its commissioning will help the military control the Asia-Pacific region, as well as open up additional opportunities for the transfer of troops across the country.

According to the Defense Ministry, the Steppe airfield will become the permanent home base of the assault air regiment (it is in the process of formation). It is located in the Olovyanninsky district of the Trans-Baikal Territory.

With the modernization of the airfield builders used the technology of modular buildings. We are talking about ready-made elements supplied by the plant, of which technical and residential premises are assembled in a short time, flesh to cottages intended for officers and their families.

From Soviet times, “Steppe” was the home of the 6 th bomber and 58 th fighter bomber regiments. From 1990, the 266 th assault air regiment was based there. Closed the airfield in 2010 year. The decision to reconstruct it was taken by Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu in 2013. Construction work was delayed due to the climatic peculiarities - in winter, the soil was frozen for several meters, which excluded the possibility of building runways and other infrastructure.

    Here in the Western media it is customary to talk about how much money was spent and who was the contractor, why do not they write about it with us? The public could compare how and where and who spends national money.

                And your cry: The public could compare ..... etc. They have already written to you, where calmly, the "public" can find out everything. Objects are not being built — poorly, being built — money is being stolen. Not tired of crying?

                Consider building 3 km. Runway for 5 years - is this normal? # And what! Quite the normal pace of construction in Russia! In winter it freezes for how many meters, in the summer it thaws for several meters! So they build when it's dry! Of course, it would be possible to build an aircraft carrier barge there. In winter, she would freeze, and in the summer she would freeze and be afloat! And the object is not being built at a sporting event to receive foreign guests! We put the asphalt right in front of the mundial and put the marking. Of course laid out in front of foreigners. But as usual, he lay for a month and he began to lead and poke. I do not believe in the quality of our spill. In the courtyard of the high-rise buildings, they managed to lay the asphalt in waves, how can ours stack it like that !? This is probably purely our domestic technology. But the Armenian guys drove a few kilometers fantastically smoothly! But our people no longer believe in the longevity of asphalt pavement. It will lie either until the first rain, or until the snow melts. They don’t make any further plans.

                How on your sofa everything just looks, it takes evil from such specialists. I’ll answer from my own experience. In Soviet times TWO YEARS (Karl!) Were repairing our airfield (Kipelovo). This is despite the fact that the strip did not extend, no earthwork was carried out, we never saw any permafrost, we just laid new concrete on top of the old one.

                  Here I wrote below about the man who saved the passengers and crew of the Tu 154 with his actions. Sergei Sotnikov alone maintained the operational status of the runway at an abandoned airfield. 81 saved life, in my opinion, on his account. This is who it is necessary to follow, not the contractors, where the 5 brigades of the runways are built. More than 120 people worked at Izhma Airport in the USSR.

                    If you are such a great specialist in the construction and operation of airfields, how much time, in your opinion, should this construction take in permafrost? Honor and praise to Sotnikov for not bolting a bolt to his airfield, but his job was to periodically cut down plants that made their way between the slabs of the strip, and this is not such an overwhelming work. hi

                      You need to calculate, but I'm too lazy. I have not done this since 90's, after we began to pay salaries on concrete products with sand. But for everything, 100 is sure what can be done in less than 5 years. The Gobi Desert is also a permafrost region. hi And the photo where the worker with a grater stands is finished.

                      We do not count such airdromes. I have already written that Sotnikov no longer believes in the development of small aircraft. However, I explain Chevo. At the very already melancholy, and hands fall. It is you, with blue epaulets, who should beat the bells. And the moral component of Sotnikov? For 12 I would not have had Martyshkin's years, as it seemed, of labor. Even Putin asked why he did it. The awarding ceremony, though difficult, but I remember this man struck me. And we now know small aircraft where you are.

                        No calculations were made, but sure? I have already given you an example with our airfield, which was not built, but only repaired for two years, that is, it simply boiled down to pouring new concrete over the old one. There was no need, as at the Steppe AS, to remove the soil, fill up the pillow, lay drainage, or install lighting equipment. And this takes more time than pure concrete work.

          He just read an interview with him at AiF, he no longer believes in the revival of small aircraft. He quit when heating was cut off at the airport. It's a shame. With small aircraft we have a complete seam. She is no more. Runway construction is unprofitable. In the USSR, grandfathers could fly through the villages for three times, and now some oil workers fly. Although the people of Sotnikov thanked, he threw himself on a snowmobile. I reread it in a new way, there on an airplane all the electrics were closed. All systems flew.

    In 1968, only that the 58th Infantry Regiment formed had flown to the Steppe from Chernyakhovsk. There stood two fresh five-story buildings for two aviation regiments. One house was occupied by the Vorontsov regiment, another Alaevsky. (By the names of the com. Regiments). In four years, six more five-story buildings and a school were built. How will people post now? If it’s the same as in our times, it’s harsh.

    Piramidon,
    Honestly, I did not find the info for how long similar runways are in other countries. And to calculate it yourself, you need to know too many factors. But I found a very interesting info on the airports:

    "The PRC Civil Aviation Administration approved a plan according to which most of even small regions of the country will receive their own airports. By 2030, the goal is to increase the number of air ports available in the Celestial Empire from the current 399 to 2000. That is, more than 100 airports will be built in China annually, creating 1600 such facilities in just a decade and a half The strategic goal is to revitalize the internal transport and passenger flow within China, including for "pulling" backward regions to the level of economically successful provinces.
    Vitaly Bordunov, professor, expert of the State Duma Committee on Transport, ICAO expert:
    - The example, of course, is indicative. But in Voronezh, the airport is still preserved and continues to work. Unlike others that simply disappeared from the aviation map of Russia. I will give the numbers. At the beginning of the 1990's there were 1450 airfields. Today is 282. As much as in only one of the 51 US states - in Alaska.
    In total in the USA there are 13 500 airports and airfields. There is where to fly, there is an extensive route network, and all this maintains a steady consumer demand for air travel. China is implementing plans to build 100 airfields per year.
    What plans does Russia have? The invisible hand of the market has derailed more than a thousand airfields, leaving millions of people, primarily in the Far East and the Far North, without aviation services. And there are no changes yet. "
    Are you still offended by our aviation?
