??Biography: Li Chunhui, search and rescue helicopters echelon led the lead plane.
Xinhua Military: Our troops equipped helicopters are what?
Li Chunhui: This is the search and rescue helicopter for the first time to participate in the National Day military parade, participated by reading the straight 8 helicopters. Of course, in addition to straight 8, our troops are equipped with other models. Our mission helicopters participated in the 2008 Wenchuan earthquake relief.
Xinhua military: to explain the specific features of search and rescue helicopter do?
Li Chunhui: search and rescue helicopters and transport helicopters, compared to the traditional, mainly the installation of the search locator (search locator function is search, locate pilot issued a radio distress signal), night vision infrared search and rescue equipment, high-power searchlight, winch, stretcher, medical equipment and other rescue equipment. In terms of staffing, search and rescue helicopters are also available two lifeguards,
search and rescue helicopter search and rescue are mainly two ways. One is the helicopter landing directly to the ground, rescue trapped pilot. Another is in the sea, mountains, urban areas, which are not suitable for helicopter landing sites, then take the air hovering helicopter on the way, and then use the winch with a cable to the pilot pulled the plane.
last year, we participated in a group of helicopter rescue drill, it should be said to be very successful. Time is simulated downed pilot, the two soldiers, “the pilot” a fall into the water, they carry search and rescue stations will automatically send a distress signal, and then took off on the water search and rescue helicopter search, hover over the final surface, with the successful rescue winch from the downed “pilot.”
should be recognized, specialized search and rescue helicopters and advanced compared to straight 8 there is a gap, because this type of search and rescue helicopter was modified from the traditional transport helicopters over, there is still to be improved professionalism.
In addition, because our mission station in the coastal areas, high humidity, high salinity of the test of weather and equipment mainly for the corrosion of engine parts, affecting the power output, so the need for regular cleaning.
Xinhua Military: search and rescue helicopters took part in flying parade What are the characteristics?
Li Chunhui: The air echelon m s not bad to reach the standards for helicopters, the first difficulty lies in the speed of helicopter relatively slow formation speed to maintain a little bad, it’s easy to see the “flaws”; The second difficulty is the formation of air generated by the helicopter rotor helicopters, the back will have an impact.
Xinhua military: You have been flying helicopters in it?
Li Chunhui: not. I was a transport pilot. I feel that the requirements of search and rescue pilot when first action to be very precise, very small. If the flight skilled, then the stability of the helicopter like, whereas the stability of the helicopter will be very poor, is not conducive to quickly pilots rescued from the water.
Xinhua Military: Do you think the future direction of China’s search and rescue helicopter is?
Li Chunhui: I think China should develop a professional search and rescue helicopters. As the technology in Western countries blockade and embargo, can only rely on our own strength of domestic research and development. Foreign military, the U.S. military during the Vietnam War have a professional helicopter search and rescue forces. France’s land area is much smaller than China, but the French have five professional helicopter search and rescue forces. Shows that the Chinese military search and rescue helicopter unit’s future development prospects will be limitless. (Interview by Xinhua military correspondent Zheng Wenhao)
