MOSCOW, May 2 (Itar-Tass) —— All the aerodromes at the sites where military airbases are located will be reconstructed by 2020, Russian Air Force spokesman Col. Vladimir Drik told Itar-Tass on Wednesday.
Under reconstruction will be base aerodromes, aircraft test airfields and grounds of army air force units.
Full reconstruction has begun at the Krymsk airbase in the Rostov Region. Construction of new additional runways has started on the airfields of Chkalovsky, Engels and Akhtubinsk. Work on documentation is underway to reconstruct three base aerodromes in the Krasnodar Territory and the Tver and Amur regions.
New equipment is also bought for the airfields. Two sets of aerodrome equipment have been supplied to the airbases in the Leningrad and Moscow regions since the beginning of this year. Re-equipping of the Tver and Engels airfields is also planned for this year.
The reconstruction of aerodromes is directly connected with enhancing of flight safety and prevention of early malfunctioning of aircraft power units and other expensive aircraft equipment.
