WASHINGTON Zhou Jianhua, Yu Bao special correspondent who reported: deep night, planes roar. Late one night in mid-April, air force regiment many large transport aircraft took off from the interior of an airport, fly to a strange deep-sea aerial training airspace simulation. The training fleet raid from thousands of kilometers, more than seven hours of continuous flight, the successful implementation of a series of highly difficult subjects, and achieved a number of major breakthroughs, effectively increasing the transport aviation complex conditions long-range delivery capability.
In recent years, the Air Force task force regiment meet mission needs and requirements of the shift combat effectiveness, and actively explore new ways of dropping training, weather conditions, low landing, airdrop large range of follow-up, day and night “three no “drop difficult subjects training high normalization, has been to the plateaus, mountains, ocean reefs and other areas to implement drop, airborne training, improve force projection territory-wide, all-area use, full-time capability.
flying at night at sea, dark sky, no ground identification, and no ground to guide the crew to rely on machine equipment, integrated flight speed, air speed and the target coordinates, etc. independent calculation and analysis, through close dropped with the implementation of simulation training. The training courses for new and dispatched aircraft and personnel, organizational complexity, etc., the group had organized a large range of mobility transitions, large endurance and cross-training day and night flying and other targeted, well-developed security measures and plans for handling special situations and to carry out disposal of special situations such as sea rescue exercises to improve flight crew the ability to deal with the complicated situation.
According to leader of the regiment, the train hit a large transport group for the first time the night-sea training for the first time with a background of sea tactical flying, dropping the first midnight sea simulation and many other training records, training of psychological and technical and tactical flight officer, to improve the military ability to carry out diversified military tasks.
