The Air Force is preparing flight crews who will operate the amphibious aircraft Be-103, the Military-Industrial Courier reports with reference to the official representative of the Air Force, Colonel Igor Klimov.
“For this purpose, basing on the level of training and experience of flight operations, it was selected 12 pilots who have undergone theoretical training in Taganrog in JSC “Beriev Aircraft Company”. For high-quality training of flight crews to operate the airplane Be-103 we developed a retraining program for flight crews, which includes theoretical, simulator and flight training,” I.Klimov said.
