ARKHANGELSK, February 13. /ITAR-TASS/. Carrier-based pilots of the Russian Northern Fleet's air force aboard the Admiral Kuznetsov heavy cruiser have begun training missions over the Mediterranean, southeast of Cyprus, navy spokesman Vadim Serga told Itar-Tass on Thursday.
The pilots are mastering navigation and other skills piloting their Su-33 fighters to perform aerobatics on complicated flights at all altitudes and speeds and mastering group flying, Serga said. If weather conditions allowed, flights would continue over the next few days.
He said pilots had carried out 130 flights during the warship's voyage, logging about 100 flying hours and acquiring practical experience launching from the cruiser's deck out to the open sea, the official added.
Ten ships of Russia's Black Sea, Northern and Baltic fleets are currently cruising the Mediterranean.
