On May 8, the Youth Committee of ‘Support to Javakhk’ Foundation hosted the meeting of the “The Path of the Past” program with Sergey Vantsyan, this time on the online platform.
The day of the meeting was not chosen by chance, as Mr. Vantsyan had a key contribution to the victory of the Artsakh war, especially in the liberation of Shushi. After all, the transfer of people, weapons, ammunition, medicine and food from Armenia to Artsakh depended on him and other devotees of Armenian civil aviation.
“The victory of Artsakh changed our psychology, proving that when we are together, we can win, even be an aggressor, if we are forced to.”
He became interested in aviation when he met with the head of the Tbilisi airport Lavrenti Mkrtchyan.
“A person working in the field of aviation must be professional, knowledgeable and honest, be able to understand aviation psychology.”
Although the war was the most difficult stage of his life, he remembers every episode with pride.
‘During the war, I never forced pilots to fly, I said, “That’s the mission, can you complete it?”. And I’ve almost always flown with them, 3-4 times a day. In those days, we never had to land because of technical problems, because we realized that in any case, the flight must be safe. ”
The best advice for young people is not to leave Javakhk, to be patriotic, to stay firmly rooted and to cultivate the native land.
