The first steps towards the revival of the Borisoglebsky Higher Military Aviation School of Pilots

Last Saturday Borisoglebskaya aviation base (Voronezh region), related to the Air Force training center of the Russian Air Force, celebrated a special holiday. A representative delegation of the Russian Ministry of Defense arrived, led by the Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force, Colonel General Viktor Bondarev.

The first steps towards the revival of the Borisoglebsky Higher Military Aviation School of Pilots

A memorial dedicated to the Heroes of the Soviet Union and the Russian Federation ever graduated from the legendary Borisoglebsk military school was opened in front of the main building of the Borisoglebsky aviation base (formerly the Borisoglebsky Higher Military Aviation School of Pilots - BVVAUL named after V.P. Chkalov).

The first at the opening ceremony of the monument, called "Chkalovtsy. Heroes of the Fatherland", was Commander-in-Chief of the Air Force, whose name is also on the list on the wall of the heroes. Viktor Nikolaevich Bondarev is a graduate of BVVAUL named after V.P. Chkalov 1981 of the year and a Hero of Russia.

The ceremony was attended by the head of the Military Training and Scientific Center of the Air Force "Air Force Academy named after NE Zhukovsky and Yu.A. Gagarin "(VUNC VVS Air Force") Voronezh Lieutenant-General Gennady Zibrov. He told that already in 2016-2017. After a sufficiently long break, which clearly did not go to the benefit of the country's Air Force, the Boris and Gleb air base will again receive the cadets. At the first stage, these will be cadets of senior courses at VUNC VVS Air Force, who entered the Krasnodar branch of the military educational and scientific center.

For Borisoglebsk, the revival of the aviation base and the involvement in training in the city of cadets VUNC Air Force "VVA" is a truly significant event. The fact is that Borisoglebsk itself for a long period of time (Soviet time) in different parts of the country was associated precisely with the presence in the city of one of the oldest aviation schools in Russia. The graduate of this school was the legendary Valery Chkalov. If the military school acquires a new life, then for the whole city it will become a significant stimulus to a new stage of development. The opening ceremony was also attended by the head of Borisoglebsk, Alexey Kabargin, who paid special attention to the link between the fate of the city and the fate of the military school.

During the opening ceremony of the Chkalovtsy. Heroes of the Fatherland ”, Lieutenant-General Gennady Zibrov told that in 2015 six graduates of the Borisoglebsk cadet school would enroll in VUNC Air Force“ VVA ”in the future to wear officer shoulder straps of the Air Force of the Russian Federation.

The opening ceremony of the new memorial in Borisoglebsk was attended by ex-commander-in-chief of the Russian Air Force (1991-1998) Peter Deinekin. Major General Anatoly Morozov, former chief of the Borisoglebsk Higher Military Aviation School (1986-1990), spoke about the big event for the aviation base and the entire aviation of Russia.

The servicemen of the company of the guard of honor of the VVAU Air Force Military Training Center, the military orchestra and military vocal performers presented a rich program to the assembled citizens of Boris-and-Gleb and the guests of the city. A company of the guard of honor presented a performance with carbines and checkers, and a military band struck with a virtuoso performance of tunes from songs about military pilots.

Cadets VUNC VSS "VVA", veterans (graduates of the Borisoglebsk military school), representatives of the Ministry of Defense and the city administration laid flowers at the bust of V.P. Chkalov and busts twice Heroes of the Soviet Union, installed on the new memorial. The memorial, by the way, is located on Chkalov Street, which is very symbolic.

The culmination of the opening ceremony was the greeting of the townspeople and guests of the city from the Boris and Gleb aerobatic team Wings of Taurida, serving on the new Yak-130 training and combat aircraft. The aerobatic team received its name due to the fact that for the first time its skills were officially demonstrated in the skies of the Crimea. Wings of Taurida is the youngest aerobatic team of the Russian Air Force.

      If this is the first step towards the restoration of military schools, one of the oldest is said, then it is necessary first of all to restore the FIRST KACHIN HIGHER SCHOOL OF RUSSIA named after Myasnikov in Volgograd, or return him to his homeland in the village of Kacha. You will receive many thanks from those who studied and graduated from this illustrious school. Not so few graduates of KVVAUL them. Myasnikov became the heroes of the USSR and Russia, and Kacha brought up cosmonauts.

      The dissolution of military schools is a betrayal! You have to shoot for it! You can’t shoot in Russia!
      So what are we rejoicing for, the next furniture maker will come tomorrow and cut again ... Aviation, aviation, but everything was reduced from Vladivostok to Kaliningrad !!!! There is no money for restoration, but for Serdyukov, I’m sorry for it, Vasilyeva the state has money !!!!

    The six cadets are, of course, strength. And also the Zhugarin Academy ... Someone will say - the revival of aviation begins, not all at once. But they broke it at once. And we don’t have much time.

    Break not build. How many schools were closed and dissolved in the 90, at the time of Serdyuchka ... now all this needs to be restored, and more often built from scratch.
    But it’s good that they started and all the same Russia will begin to open military schools.

      not build a bath. How many schools were closed and dismissed in the 90s, during the time of Serdyuchka ..

      So, according to the logic of things, the first step to the development of this school should be the term for those figures who did everything to break it up. Moreover, these are not some mythical personalities, but quietly resting figures ............. .
      At the moment, I’ll not reveal the secrets that there is no one to fly, the industry produces more aircraft than pilot schools, but the pilot still needs 5 years to become a first-class specialist in piloting

    Very joyful and hopeful article! Thanks to the author for the excellent report. For the small town of Borisoglebsk, this is a very significant event. Although I myself live 60 kilometers from Borisoglebsk, I see a practical revival of the Russian Air Force: the number of aircraft performing training flights over our village, sometimes pilots make such a "trick" that you immediately recall the Soviet era (I lived before moving to Russia in Kazakhstan, not far from the military airfield in Erkino (Taldy-Kurgan), It is a pity that there was no guest among the guests Mikhailov, the former chief schools, and the former commander-in-chief of the Air Force.
    Glory to the Russian Air Force!

    The collapse of military education is treason to the motherland. And for this we must judge.

      Then it is necessary to judge the whole country, some for the direct destruction of defense capability, and others for the tacit consent. Thank God, this mess was stopped in time, and now they began to make up for the lost.

    We are very glad to welcome such an event as the revival of BWWAUL !!!! The heart sank when it was closed, combined, taken out, "optimized"! After all, our victorious people understand that the army must be strong! For us, flights in the sky of cadets are the best music, to which you can sleep well, relax! We are ready to tolerate the absence of "the benefits of civilization", "if our native country would live - and there are no other worries" !!! And with the revival of the school, Borisoglebsk and its surroundings will develop!

      As a matter of fact, I would not say that Borisoglebsk vegetates, no, there are enough enterprises here, but the moral rise due to the revival of the school is really needed by the city and the region. By the way, D. Rogozin played a big role in this, he indirectly relates to Borisoglebsk and the school.

    Beauty, nice to watch!
    So many ruined for the dashing 90s and stupid zero. Yes, and now there are many questions.
    Let's revive, my boys are growing up!
    And ... I can not help but ask, what about the legendary Kachey?
    Everything has sunk into oblivion?

        All that's left.
        Now in the territory of Kachi tankers. What a pity, the story of the oldest flight school is too big to abandon it like that.

    In the Soviet years, pilots trained over the Voronezh region for days on end. Such figures in the sky described what was breathtaking even from the earth.

    In general, everything is as always - we are beginning to heroically overcome the epic difficulties that we ourselves have created. Many thanks to the leadership of the Russian Federation for not having time to break through the Air Force training system to the end and catching up at the very edge, now it’s slow and difficult to restore what’s destroyed.
    But, I repeat, and thanks for that! And then, instead of Serdyukov, they could not put Shoigu, but put Chubais. After all, he is also Tolyan, like Serdyukov, whatever one may say, the continuity is obvious ...

    The generals in the photo look somehow chewed up in these "trousers on the ground", shame! And to put into operation "soldiers" in skirts is finally a shame for a country where there are a lot of men! Ugh, damn it! For normal people, women should sit in the kitchen and wait for their soldier. Another example from the rotten west? Liberation continues, however.
    And at the expense of the restoration of the school - it is far from a fact, and it will take years. I do not see much reason for joy, alas. For a realist. But to raise the mood, the news is pleasant - it says that we lived right in the USSR, since everything is returning to "normal".

    I live near Borisoglebsk. Nice town. Of course, great news! But the question immediately arises, who and when will bring to justice all this Russian Serdyukism, which intentionally, from selfish motives, destroyed the military education system, sold hospitals and training grounds under the hammer, curtailed domestic promising projects and concluded contracts for the purchase of expensive and useless Mistrals ?
