    In the stories with the crash of helicopters, there is always one thing that interests and amazes me - how they, in the beginning, lose their coordinates, even approximate, fall, do not know, then they can’t find for a long time, like, a grandmother in the forest somewhere went, but could in the sclerosis and the other way ...
    Either the technique is old, there are no distress alerts, or ...
    Well, complex terrain. Another car takes off and detects a signal from a height. Something is wrong? You can't find helicopters - fog. But what about all-weather helicopters, different thermal imagers, direction finders? Or only at exhibitions, a single copy to brag about?
    Honestly, look disgusting.
    Yes, people are trying, probably, but it’s impossible. Balabolism about the exploration of Mars and the Moon, and they themselves, under the zh.p.o.y. helicopter can not find. And disgusting and insulting.
    Not to reproach the rescuers, apparently they are poor in technology.
    Something like that.

    PS I remember, Putin’s dog, they hung GLONASovsky Pribluda around his neck so that he wouldn’t get lost. On a tractor, trolleybuses, trams for some reason sculpt. This is probably why there are not enough helicopters. A bitter smile only ...

        At exhibitions, which just does not show. I’m most pleased to hear that ours, they say, is Russian ... And hde IT ???
        I'm not talking about the fact (s) of the fall, I ask - why are they looking for so long !?

        Civil aviation of Russia eke out a miserable existence after its destructive Yeltsin-Chubais privatization and continues the consequences of this privatization and will continue to kill people! Unfortunately!
        Destroyed not only the most powerful aviation campaign Aeroflot (please do not confuse with the current Aeroflot), which Russia inherited from the USSR, civil aviation system destroyed for decadesserving 1/6 of the globe.
        The civil aviation system of Russia, which included all issues from training of flight personnel, centralized procurement of aircraft and financing of aircraft factories, to the creation of airfields in the smallest and most remote villages and the organization of regular and most importantly accessible flights for the population.
        In place of the single competitive Aeroflot campaign on the world market, hundreds of small firms were created, capable only of "finishing off" the aircraft and helicopter fleet that they inherited, with extremely unsatisfactory work on flight safety leading to inevitable plane crashes.
        To correct the situation, to recreate the civil aviation system, which will provide the population of Russia with safe and trouble-free air transport, is not even put by the current state leadership.
        The deaths of people in plane crashes on the conscience of the leadership of the state, from Yeltsin-Chubais to Putin-Medvedev.

    Yeah ... I'm sorry for the people. But quite often helicopter pilots fly out not because of the weather because people are torn off from civilization ... And you can't fly like (by weather) and you can't fly because of something. Childbirth, for example, or something else ... And the state does not care! Type: you live in the taiga - you are to blame. No medical care, no studies, no work. Do you want to leave the taiga - good riddance. Himself, in short, then ... As you want ... Do not contact me ...
    That fliers risk. Last year, they fell into fog on September 8th (between Subpolar and Hulemsunt). Horror!

      Yuri, they will seek and find the extreme. MI without communication, without GLONASS in our time is slaughter. When will we love and take care of people? There are those responsible for the security matter - in the government (not in companies with pick-up handles), the state represented by the Ministry of Emergencies is powerless to protect citizens, only OSELIA moves. Is it easier to pay the funeral, than really do security?

        Valentine! This is of course generally ... no words! I don't know which company the board belongs to. I fly mainly "Gazpromavia", less often "Ut-air". There security issues are at the level. There was a case 6-7 years ago: the board boarded an emergency (I don't remember the company) in the Nadym region (like). At night. In the winter. Found instantly. An eyewitness told.
        True, there are neither hills nor a dense forest.

    He lived a little more than 12 years in the village of Ust-Kuyga (Ust-Yansky district, Yakutia, 220 km from the village of Deputatsky), there really are wild places, they were lucky that they got in touch, otherwise, they would have searched for a long time and found vryatli alive. But again, this nature is the most beautiful, untouched, a man there is alien.

    And it seems to me that it was the human factor that caused the tragedy. Mi-8s are considered (but they are) the most reliable helicopters. But pilots are not always the most reliable. How much information in the media skips that pilots on passenger planes fly drunk drunk, and this is in reputable airlines and on reputable routes. And in the North, who controls them? It is a pity that through someone’s negligence and slackness, so much grief came to someone’s family ...

    Let the earth rest in peace, survivors of a speedy recovery. Vertaks are falling, this is a long-standing disease that began not yesterday but in the 90s of the last century. The consequences of the Gorbachev perestroika and the reign of Tsar Boris. The whole helicopter industry was ruined. Remember Rosvertol, there were spare parts, service was always there at the highest level, that now they donated everything and sold it privately, they violated the entire supply chain and services. the best specialists lost the old people did not prepare the young people. In part, they buy at the market what kind of glanas and what means of communication there can be if the car is already more a quarter of a century, and new revenues are not expected so the private trader does not have the means to buy, and even more so to invest in the aviation industry.
    It seems to me that all transport should be handed over to the state as before. Only it can guarantee us flight safety.
