Chinese pilot: Training is so intense that he spent only 12 days a year with his family

55

A report was published on Chinese television on the intensity of training and planned flights of PLA air force pilots. It is noted that from year to year in the air force observed increase in flight hours for pilots of various types of military aviation: from transport to fighter.

As an example, the Chinese media decided to cite the annual schedule of the pilot of the J-10 multi-role fighter Wu Hui. He is a pilot of the fighter regiment of the so-called Southern Theater (an analogue of the military district).



Wu Hui:

I graduated from a military university in 2004 and was appointed to a position in a squadron equipped with fighters of the second (according to Russian and Western classification - third, - approx. “VO”) fighter. After that, I was transferred to the regiment, flights in which are carried out on the J-10.

To date, more than 300 fighters of this type are in service with the PLA Air Force and Navy.

A report by Chinese journalists says that in 2019 the training of pilots in the PLA air force was so intense and tight on schedule that the plot hero Officer Wu Hui “could spend only 12 days with his family - with his wife and child.”

Wu Hui:

We all understand that training is routine and planned. And at the same time, we understand that only training of this nature, as if a real war is going on, allow us to prepare in the best way. Modern combat is very different from the one we were told about at the flight school. Only experience in the cockpit allows us to understand how the principles of warfare and the technologies used in aircraft have changed.

    Are they already preparing for war at full speed?

      If aviation is so actively used for training, the question arises that there is an accelerated depreciation of aircraft, and an accelerated replacement by new machines is required.

          There are things that in some countries it is not customary to talk about. Especially if the entire information space is under strict control. Only their own victories and successes are voiced. However, no one forbids throwing mud on others (including Russian weapons). Like Ukraine, only in Ukraine, even though the Internet is not yet under state control.

          In the USSR, we also heard little about air accidents. If they still found out about civilian planes ... mainly through rumors, then the military is completely taboo. About the same thing in China.

          Come on. When my father served in the Soviet Army, then once every half a year, he had a day off, then it was a holiday for the whole family. He left for service when we were still sleeping, returned when we were already sleeping. You can calculate how many days off there were over 25 years of service. (I do not consider vacation). If you count by the hours spent in the service, then for three ordinary pensions will work.

    Something I do not believe in these tales. The standard flight time of fighters is 200-300 hours a year. Even if ALL days are flying, family holidays are usually at home. And they will fly for 500 hours - health will end quickly. Overload, nervous exhaustion ...

        Do not stir up water. In OVE at the motorized rifle division (80s) in ZabVO
        flights maximum 4 days a week, one day of preliminary preparation. There were also "park days", targeted inspections, there was simply no weather, etc.
        A third - half of the sides flew. More - less often. Day with transition to night. The weather scout rose at 15.00, stopped at one in the morning, refueled, covered. It was not this that bothered, but the fact that they ran on alarm, instead of a day off, you can easily ring out in an outfit (without any time off). And holidays with obligatory construction at the worst time - at eight in the evening. Not to drink, not to grumble for real. Of course, the "whistles" also had occasional transportation of all sorts of bosses and patients, PSS. Flight time of 120 hours per year is normal.

      If my memory serves me, if you correct something, here is the standard sample work week.
      Mon - Preliminary preparation, Target inspections and checks on AT
      Tue - Flights
      Wed - Flights
      Thu - Park day (Trainings with l / s, the most difficult work on AT) every 2 weeks.

    Getting ready for .... definitely. With whom, request as Fursov teaches, "to bury your head in the sand is the last thing, as well as to run away from fate. She will catch up and so will become stunned. The blows of fate must be met with the face and then there will be a chance to win." The world behind the scenes and the world economy need a "good war" on the scale, and of course, preferably with our participation. And if China takes part in it, then it will be the height of bliss for the world's TNCs. This is the dream of the US state too.
    All the squeals about China's interests in the south are not worth the salary of one button. World experience teaches disinformation the mother of victory. Hitler hit Poland and thus lull the "democracy", as a result he got France. Shaking hands with us, China could simultaneously receive from the West a bunch of guarantees on the recognition of the legality of new territorial acquisitions, at our expense, why not? China took someone else's and will still try to take it. request

    Theoretically, this can happen if the family does not live in the garrison, but generally in the other end of the country with his mother, for example, so that he can only get to her on vacation
    12 days with the family, it doesn’t mean that he spends the rest of the time in the air, he just can’t leave the garrison for a long time
    On the other hand, no one writes that his wife does not visit him periodically in the garrison without a child, and you never know what kind of Chinese nurses Ta Mar Ki they have :)

        And a few days of vacation.

        The fact is that flight crews cannot have short vacations, these vacations are very large, this time is necessary (vacation) to recover, and this applies to pilots of any country. There is also a whole system of recovery (psychological, physiological) in addition to holidays, such as dispensaries, special centers. Much attention is paid to this, it has always been and everywhere.
        The flight rates (month, year) are regulated, flying more than the established one - only harm yourself, there will be no benefit, and glitches can be "caught". All flight work is determined by the Combat Training Course; accordingly, the raid is planned, all that is more - the usual unnecessary "manure".

          In Israel, pilots are forced to live close to airfields. They make such special settlements. Wealthy with nice villas. So that families do not suffer. And reservist pilots have a paid vacation once a week for a "flight day." They come to the base and fly for an hour or two. There are three equal crews for each aircraft.

            Everyone has their own rules, in the Soviet Air Force the vacation was - 45 (forty-five days) + road, after 1991 the vacation for some reason was increased - 60 (sixty days) + road
            According to the raid, what happened (in front-line aviation):
            40 (forty) flying hours per year - a year counts as two.
            50 (hours) flight hours per year - the minimum required to confirm the class.
            This, of course, was not enough to maintain a good level, but a 90-110 hour flight was enough to be trained. Of course, they raided more and more, due to numerous business trips, the regimental pilot pilots had large raids, who took out young lieutenants (and not young ones too) for flight access, these could even fly in for two hours.
            The annual raid in front-line aviation was approximately equal to the monthly raid in Long-Range Aviation or Transport.
