After the collapse of the USSR State Security Committee was abolished, and the aviation group, controlled by the KGB, is a great help for the Soviet Special Forces soldiers, placed under the authority of the Federal Border Service. The result of such action was the complete lack of supporting aircraft in the ranks of the special forces of the new state - Russia. This, in turn, resulted in not the best results. But this error was corrected, however, after only a decade.

Beginning in 1999, a special-purpose commission was established in the ranks of the FSB, whose main task was to create auxiliary aviation for the FSB. A former employee of Vympel and Alfa, V.S. Kozlov, even though at that time he was the head of the OODD for combating terrorism and protecting the constitutional order of the FSB. And the actual founder of this detachment in the ranks of the FSB was V.E. Pronichev. The corporate work began, involving the entire department, as a result of which all legal and legal issues were resolved in just six months. Beginning in February 2000, the Russian special forces received their own aviation, performing purely its tasks.

To carry out and delivery of the accompanying equipment. And it was an unusual Transportion. Often, job priority was put saving people. A similar situation occurred during the operation in Mineralnye Vody directly with the hostage-taking in the Lazarev.

At present, the FSB aviation is in a state of constant readiness to fight terrorism and protect the country's borders. Protection of economic interests at sea is also in demand. For FSB pilots, there are special missions of reconnaissance, transport, fire and other special purposes.

True, most of the operations performed are impossible to describe, since they are classified as "top secret".

The structure unit consists of about 300 the flying vehicles, most of which is located at the borders of the country and is responsible to the border authorities for the protection of external borders.

Aviation supports FSB Special Forces groups. This increases mobility, reduces the time spent on care employees on the transfer of weapons, property and most of the personnel. At the same time, the FSB aircraft is not able to replace the type of flight units of the regular army or the other law enforcement agencies.

Initially, it may seem that armed flying detachment of federal services are the most common aircraft machine. However, it is not. The main difference lies in the aircraft equipment. One of the most striking examples of this transformation is the helicopter Ka-226Which is converted by the product of the minimum noise. The same situation concerns aircrafts such as "ANSAT» Mi-8 and "Finist". They upgraded specifically for the various types of the FSB secret service operations. In addition to regular flying machines, the FSB arsenal of drones present, balloons, airships and separately purchased televizornaya, radar and teleradiolokatsionnaya equipment.
