Participants had to identify defects in 20 minutes and add them to the statements.

– For the first time I participated in the competition in 2014, then I took second place. Aimed at winning this year, – said aircraft engineer Vladimir Gaikin. The hardest part is the practical part. Since defects can be very inconspicuous, and finding them in such a short period of time is a very time-consuming task.

The head of the helicopter shop, Maxim Popov, explained that in the practical part, the participants were divided into teams of two people. One aircraft technician is engaged in the power plant, and the other two are looking for defects on the airframe.

– Quite an interesting experience, it helps to look at yourself in a new way, understand weaknesses and improve professional skills, – he continued. – In the profession, at first, the most difficult thing is the weather conditions.
