        Compared to previous years, this is great, but how many hours should be for optimal preparation? (experts tell me).

    "Long-range aviation crews launched missile and bomb strikes on infrastructure facilities of the Islamic State terrorist organization in Syria"

    Here, it’s not just a simple raid, but a raid in real combat mode and should be evaluated more seriously. With a holiday you flyers!

    It is heartening that it was no longer saving on these matters.
    And I also want to believe that all new developments and the Russian Tu-160 will take place.

        With a raid of more than 120 hours it was already possible to submit docks to the pilot-sniper docks wink And yes, the more the better.

    So much is now an ordinary pilot flying in front-line aviation. Not enough for long-range aviation. But. This is undoubtedly better than 3-5 years ago. I'm not talking about the dashing mid-90s. And the most important thing. we are now flying around the corner, our probable and incredible opponents feel Our presence, the aircraft fleet is being modernized. And most importantly, the crews get real combat experience. And it's worth a lot! Happy holiday, our dear "dalnoboi" !!!!

    With such a raid, you can make a commotion anywhere in the world! And we must strive to ensure that no one in any country in the world feels safe from Russian retaliation.

    ..... "Commander-in-Chief: The average flight time of the Russian Air Force in 2014 will reach the world level

    The average flight time of Russian Air Force pilots by 2014 will be about 120 hours, which corresponds to the level of world powers, said Air Force Commander Viktor Bondarev, noting that currently the average flight time is 110-112 hours. ".....
    In 2015, 130 hours. There is a positive trend and it pleases !!!

      the 130-hour raid for YES is very small, it’s just impossible to compare the average raid in the Air Force, the planes are different, in simple terms. And they solve different problems.

        And the tasks are solved differently.

        The tasks are different and are solved during flights. You can go the route at 12 o’clock - takeoff and landing. And you can take off for two hours - to work out the landing, behind the curtains, at least, on two engines, ...... A lot depends on the tasks being worked out. Hanging in the air does not add skill. The rule of the golden mean has not been canceled.
