Russian Helicopters’ Progress Arsenyev Aviation has trained technical personnel from the first batch of the foreign specialist's group in flying the Ka-52 Alligator surveillance and attack helicopter.

The all-weather helicopter is operated by the Russian Air Force to defeat enemy armoured and unarmoured ground targets, low-speed aerial targets, as well as personnel at the front-line and in tactical depth.

The first batch of the foreign specialists arrived at the enterprise facilities on 1 June.

As part of the special training programme conducted under an export contract, 24 technical specialists and ten pilots were taught in the aviation training centre of the enterprise.

Equipped with personal computerised work stations and electronic demonstration systems, the centre’s classrooms provided theory training.

"Ka-52 helicopter is able to fully reveal its potential and demonstrate the highest flight performance when operated by pilots and technicians trained by Russian Helicopters specialists."

Using real test and ground support equipment, Progress Arsenyev Aviation conducted practical exercises for the technical personnel in specialised laboratories and stationary training helicopter sites.
