The Russian Defence Ministry published a video of drills being conducted by the Baltic Fleet’s naval aviation, which showed the landing of a Ka-27 military helicopter in difficult meteorological conditions.

The Ministry’s YouTube channel posted a video of a helicopter landing on the decks of project 20380 corvettes and Yaroslav Mudryi patrol ship of the Baltic Fleet.

It demonstrates how naval aviation works in adverse weather conditions. According to the Ministry, the crew completed more than 60 landings during the drills.

The manoeuvres included landing in drift and moving during the light and dark hours of the day. The pilots also worked on methods of searching and tracking enemy submarines.

“Each pilot must have the skills to control the helicopter in conditions of insufficient visibility, when it is necessary to perform a flight task, to carry out safe take-off and landing on the deck of the ship, focusing exclusively on instruments,” the press service of the Ministry of Defense said.

We have automated ship landing an Airbus-Eurocopter choppers and Dassault’s Rafale for long! In fact, even air-force Rafale can land on an aircraft carrier in auto-mode, thus these can’t be catapulted, but with half fuel and barely no payload, they’re airborne in 250m and can be refuelled when in the air 😉 Now even civilian Falcon have been added auto-landing and augmented reality allowing to “see” a landing strip despite a 3m visibility 😉 Such function is also available from ships, the ILS simply transmitting all the needed data to assume the augmented reality on HUD/HMD/Glass-Cockpit… I feel back in… Read more »
