"
Pilots, who would have had the title of V.Batyrshina in Kazan can literally be counted on the fingers. To become a well-deserved Russian pilot must fly 10 thousand hours in first class flight without incident, you will need to learn a new technique and prepare flight personnel.
For 10 years, a person with 40 years of experience in retirement, but before ’21 worked at the helicopter plant. "I believe that the safest form of transport — this aircraft," — said Vilyurik Batirshin.
Speaking of the holiday, he said: "The organizers of the fellows — how technology caught up! So they gathered people interested in aviation. "
Holiday memorable not only aerobatics. At the airport were deployed mass celebrations, reminding Sabantuy. In spite of the working
day, the air show visitors were several thousand. Most of them were students and staff of the anniversary KAI enterprises. Many of them came with their children. For them, were organized entertainment, typical holiday — shooting gallery, a trampoline, a master class on packing parachutes and making model airplanes.
From the entrance to the airfield runways stretched stalls. On a specially built stage without interruption was a concert. Beside him on the floor, the performances of bikers. Viewers, however, primarily interested not in festivities. Their eyes were fixed on the sky, where the pilots of small aircraft made demonstration flights and showed aerobatics.

The most spectacular were flying an air of "Chelavia" on 4 planes. They demonstrated the consistency group flights. Sometimes during execution shapes, the distance between fuselage does not exceed 20 centimeters.
Delight of the spectators also called waltzing helicopter. Heavy machine effortlessly laid the steep turns. Pilot hit art — several times the aircraft, hovering for a moment, touched the chassis marker cone standing on the ground, it was never turned over.
In addition to flying machines, the program celestial show were paratroopers. One of the groups showed jumps on landing accuracy. In the immediate vicinity of the spectators was set mat with built-in shock sensor, the information to be displayed on a special board. Skydiver, touching the surface of the fifth point, increased the value by one.
On a holiday planned to establish a record of the Russian Federation for the CRW. However, windy weather prevented it. Parachutists in the sky blown hundreds of meters, and make whole the figure they could not.
