Major General Aviation

Meet the current Major General of Aviation today is not as easy as in the old days. The fact is that in 1993, this military rank was abolished. Now in the field of aviation a similar rank is assigned without specifying the type of troops: simply “Major General” (i.e., without prefix). And most of the major generals of aviation today are either retired or in reserve.

The title was first introduced back in 1940 according to two decrees of the Presidium of the Supreme Council on the establishment of military ranks to senior officers. At that time, the number of members of aviation units has increased dramatically; apparently, there was a need to streamline the system of assigning ranks. Title "Major General Aviation" 53 existed for years. Military history is replete with characters who, at one time or another, were given the title. If you meet Air Force Major General, retired or left, make no mistake: in front of you - a man of unique experience and knowledge.

In connection with the recent crash of a Malaysian airline in the sky over Ukraine, an interview with retired aviation major Alexander Barsukov appeared in the press. The current professor of the Irkutsk branch of the Moscow State Technical University of Civil Aviation knows almost everything about the technical part of passenger flights. And the first question, which naturally arises from an experienced aviator, concerns the hazard warning system on board the downed aircraft. Such systems, according to him, are on all modern aircraft: as soon as the plane hits the sight, special sensors work. The signal is instantly transmitted to the board, and the pilot in the cockpit simply cannot fail to notice it. This pulls the second question: what if the pilot noticed the signal and told where to go? Why then not a word about it anywhere? The situation is incomprehensible.

In an interview, Major General Aviation also analyzes the possible causes of the crash of the flight. According to A. Barsukov, there is simply nothing to base conclusions on.
