Well! We do not rest and have prepared for you the renewal of the Nalchik airport! Okay update, MSFS2020 version is now available! This is a new scenario! And we are great! We did it! :-)
The Nalchik airport was organized in 1945 on the basis of the Osoaviakhim airfield. A land plot of 140 hectares, a small storage facility and a shed - Nalchik Airport began from such a base. In 1975, the construction of the runway began. At the same time, flights to Rostov, Voronezh, Moscow, and Grozny were operated from Nalchik Airport on An-24 and Yak-40 aircraft. In October 1976, V. Solovey was appointed commander of the Nalchik OJSC. In the first quarter of 1977, work was completed to lengthen the runway to receive Tu-124, Tu-134, Il-18, An-12, Yak-42 aircraft, and in connection with the repair of the runway at Mineralnye Vody airport, part of the flights from there were transferred to the airport Nalchik. In 1978, 137 thousand passengers were sent from the Nalchik airport.

In 1992, in connection with the economic transformations in the country and their negative consequences, flights on the An-24, Yak-40 aircraft for the carriage of passengers practically ceased, began to decline sharply, and given these circumstances and the provisions put forward in the resolution of the Council of Ministers of the Russian Federation in the development of Kabardino -Balkaria as a resort of all-Russian significance, one of the points of which spoke about the allocation of three Yak-42 aircraft for the Nalchik airport, the commander of JSC Metov H.T. decided to retrain seven crews for the Yak-42 aircraft at the Training Center of the Training Center. At the same time, ITS was retrained, and the ground technical base for the operation of Yak-42 aircraft began to be equipped. In June 2002, FSUE "Elbrus-Avia" was formed.
