Description

Naval aviators flying the Sukhoi Su-33 from Russia's Northern Fleet trained on the NITKA simulator at the Novofedorovka airbase, in Crimea, Thursday. The NITKA Ground Aviation Training and Research Complex is modelled on the Kuznetsov aircraft carrier. It includes a mock-up deck and take-off ramp. The 'deck' is fully moveable and designed to replicate the movement of the waves during a take-off or landing while at sea.
