Need help identifying Soviet decoration

Article about: Does anyone recognize this beat-up old decoration? I've had no luck finding a similar example online. Looks to have something to do with aircraft production or maintenance? Thanks!

    This is "Ready for anti-air and chemical defense" (PVHO) badge.

    "..in order to actively involve school youth in training the basics of PVHO approved the standards of the complex for children aged 12 to 16 years. These norms included the need to study well at school, to know the structure of the gas mask and to be able to handle it, to study the tasks of PVHO, to be able to fight fires and provide first aid to the victims".

    And given the age of it it is not that badly "beat up". It looks like there is only a single link missing from the chain and it should be fairly easy to simply re-attach it. Its' main issue is that there should be a screw post on the rear of the aircraft. That can be fixed by a jeweller but I wouldn't bother as it is probly close to being not cost effective.

    Here is a front and back pic of mine plus a 2nd class version of the same thing.

    PS Sorry about the rubbish pic quality. I just took the photos and it is quite sunny here this afternoon.
