Russian Air Force Academy.


Recommended Posts

Is there such a thing? How does one become a fighter pilot in Russia?Im just curious,how does the system work? I was in the military 13 yrs.(US ARMY)and the way it works here depends on several things.You can start off by going to west point to become an officer and work your way from there.Or you can go to OCS.Im not sure how the air force does it.But in Russia,is it voluntary?Do you have a choice as far as what you want to fly??(Cargo missions,support,etc.)Such a big country should have no problems recruiting young talent.How does the training compare to our concepts of air combat? I know...to many questions.I just find it such a fascinating subject.:book:Thanx for sharing.

In Russia, the process begins by trying to fit in the one size flight suit (no... not one-size-fits-all... just.. the only available size :D). If it fits you... you're a future pilot :D

Never forget that World War III was not Cold for most of us.

I think they have still have conscription-based system so I presume they have the initial testing where you are assigned the armed forces branch you'll serve in, they select the candidates which fit. Perhaps you can state your personal preference as to where would you like to serve which they might take into consideration or not.

None of your answers contains right answers (lol). Here in Russia you must go into Millitary Aviation High School, age 18 to 21, then after 5 or so years you go into army as leytenant.

The officer then can gain to an Academy. Commonly if the officer don't graduate from it he never be a colonel. So the Soviet/Russian military education system is two-levels system.

Academy is situated in Krasnodar. Now it is one center. In USSR times there were many military flight academies! Such as Kacha, Armavir, Eysk, Bagerevo utc...In 90s all were united.

I read a book by Alexander Zuyev (stole a MiG-29, flew to Turkey and defected to the US) part of which details his life at Armavir in the early 80's...it was rough...but not all bad...there was a female nursing school in town and no shortage of alcohol... :)

Yes.

 

I guess no Yak-130 or MiG-AT purchases then? Any plans for that?

Yak-130s complete the second and last stage of government flight testing, expected to be done with that in fall 2007. Things slowed down a bit since that 3rd prototype crashed in 2002.

 

They now have like yak-52 then L-39, then -UB planes, then single seaters

I keep saying this but i still think lockon would be magnificent (more so) if we had these aircraft (yak-52, T-6, L-39) the model is already there for the yak-52, just implementation of advanced prop FM.

 

on second thoughts, ED does have more important things to do than appeal to my whims... Sorry OT...

 

Carry on.
