Air force base and school[edit]

Main article: Kant (air base)

In 1941, a Soviet Air Force base and pilot training school were set up in the district. During World War II, 1507 military pilots were trained there. Since 1956, the school trained foreign pilots; among its graduates were both the ex-Egyptian president Hosni Mubarak and the late Syrian president Hafez Assad.

In 1992, the air base was transferred to Kyrgyzstan authorities; since 2003 it hosts Russian Air Force units. [2]

Water erosion[edit]

The district authorities, as well as the residents of the riverside village of Milianfan (Russian: Милянфан), are concerned with the River Chui gradually washing away the district's land, as it shifts its course to the south and erodes its left (southern) bank.[3]
