In the ZVO crews of the MiG-31BM work landing with one engine running

The crews of the MiG-31BM interceptors of the Western District are practicing crash landing skills with one engine running, transmitting RIA News message of the representative of ZVO Igor Migunov.

“The crews of MiG-31BM fighter-interceptors of the KVO Khotilovo airbase deployed in the Tver region have begun to work out one of the most difficult elements of the course of pilots training — flight with one engine shut off (throttled),” said the colonel.

At the beginning of the exercise, the pilot takes off, gains a given height and flies along the established route.

"Then, when landing, he takes one of the engines to idle, imitating his shutdown, selects a lurch in the direction of the operating engine and lands just above the glide path (landing trajectory) to reduce the thrust of the operating engine, use the inertia more and plan the combat vehicle “- said Migunov.

According to him, “the flights take place day and night, the time spent in the air is about 15 minutes”.

Help Agency: “MiG-31BM is a modern version of a supersonic long-range interceptor fighter. The aircraft is designed to detect and destroy air targets at extremely small, small, medium and high altitudes at any time of day and in all weather conditions. MiG-31BM fighters installed a new weapon control system and radar stations, which allow detecting targets at a distance of up to 320 km and hitting them at a distance of up to 280 km. MiG-31BM is capable of tracking air targets up to 10, as well as striking six targets simultaneously. ”

    Nowadays, this skill is becoming increasingly valuable.

      They fly and learn. This is the main thing. And not "flying on foot" imitating the formation in the air.

        It is clear that this element is included in the preparation and this element is one of the most difficult - landing with a failed engine (in battle).
        It is clear that before it was practiced.
        Only before such training was not covered.
        One means preparing for war. And do not hide it.

          DCS World: Feel like a pilot. (all of a sudden it will be interesting to anyone - what is it like to land a plane with one engine. By the way, our developers made an airplane sim)

          Yes, to what war, I have the Tver province 3 kilometers behind the river, beyond Dubna, during the Soviet era, the sound barrier crossing the ears on the ears gave 20 times a day, and day and night, now there is complete silence

        This "walking on flight" is a mandatory element of pre-flight training. Ask flyers, not theorists

    On "whistles" a very necessary element, however, on "turntables" this exercise is also among the necessary ones.

        MIG-31 - "whistle"?

        And not only him. In helicopters, the sound of the engines is "masked" by the noise from the NV blades. In airplanes, the sound is pronounced and is especially characteristic when the aircraft is taxiing, until the moment of takeoff. Well, in takeoff mode it is no longer a "whistle", but a "crash". Usually, if both types of equipment are based on the same aerodrome, then such a naming takes place and it is immediately clear who is being discussed. Don't mistake the expression "about whom". After all, for a pilot, for a techie, these "swallows" = alive.

          I was in Krymsk at the air defense airfield, there is a perpendicular, two long strips, they took off along them, and 76 short ones, along them MIG-2 and SU-29, I won’t even talk about the power of the 27s when the engines were warming, it blew off meters from 76, but the fighters took off coolly, quietly crawl along the strip, almost inaudible, then the roar is such that the ears wrap and take off, almost without a run, just crawled, and suddenly flies

          Dear, do not tell me fairy tales, I have 25 calendar and 22 are already retired. I’m from hydraulic fracturing (if you know such a word), I took almost everything that flies: from AN-2 to AN-124, but we never called anyone with whistles.

    This is a serious risk for inexperienced pilots. It is amazing how our army is prepared for conditions close to military ones. They take the risk of losing expensive aircraft. But hard in learning - easy in battle.

      Landing is the most dangerous element of flight. The risk of landing an aircraft with a failed engine can be minimized only by landing using a simulated failure. But if (God forbid!) A situation arises with a real engine failure, then the pilot has a chance to stay alive and keep the equipment. Well, as for the "inexperienced", a beginner who does not have an acceptable level of piloting technique on this type of aircraft will not be allowed to perform this exercise.

    carries out landing just above the glide path
    And why not on the glide path? Enlighten who knows hi

      On one engine, if you "fail" in speed, then I wish you health. Even if you stick the throttle, the speed gain is slow. So in January 1989 the crew from Gormovo died. We tried to accelerate by retracting the flaps, but due to large angles, sliding from behind one engine, fell on board and ejected at an angle of 90 into the forest.

        at 90 in Savasleik, the pilot died, the navigator remained alive, take-off at a high angle, loss of speed, bailout at 90 degrees, also into the forest.

    In South America, our military pilot (Colonel, in the dashing 90s) landed on the slope of the MIG mountain with failed engines ...
    True, he was injured.
    And his bosses commissar without any privileges ...
    I read it recently on the Internet. Unfortunately I did not remember the link.
    Here we have such a wonderful country ...

    All pilots perform an exercise with landing on one engine, although with a really turned off engine the car does not behave quite like it does on low gas.

    Just today I saw a video of how they planted the F-15 with one wing. But it turns out that something similar happened with the USSR test pilot Sadovnikov Nikolai Fedorovich:Полеты/Особые-случаи/Посадка-без-крыла

    Well, for starters, all this worked on simulators,
    disassembled as it should. And working out in the air is already the final stage.
    And that, most likely, was first worked out in tandem with an experienced pilot.

    Our troops are preparing for difficult military trials recourse . It will look like a brawl with a squabble. Of course, RUSSIA does not have such a need as a brawler, but what to do once the frogs cannot calm down, they have to see to calm down.

    And what's in this supernatural news ?? Hundreds of pilots in dozens of regiments fly on this exercise - simulating engine failure. There are airplanes with much less thrust to which these flights really require skill. These are not quite routine flights, but let's not heroize the usual process of combat training ...

    They are doing what they are doing right, no one knows what situation you can get into, and according to our pilots, the MiG-31's quality, like an ax, flies only on engines. Nevertheless, the car is a beast.

    To work out landing on one engine is absolutely necessary business. Another question is whether it is necessary to constantly cover such events. Indeed, various training should be the everyday life of a military pilot, and not a significant event, which is written in the press. It’s also a pity that the MiG-31 is not so much, the resource is not eternal, and replacement for these machines is not yet expected.
