News about flights on MiG-29:

Our Company successfully implemented a very interesting project for Danish TV2.

In the framework of this program the anchorman performed 30 minutes flight aboard L-39 Albatros. Our pilot demonstrated highest skills and capabilities of the aircraft performing various aerobatics such as low passes, rolls, turns, zooms etc.

Again we are glad to share bright pictures of our recent flights.

For the last week Vegitel Company has arranged 5 flights aboard MiG-29 jet fighter.

This time most our pilots were Russian citizens but among them were guests from Finland and Great Britain as well.

On April 12 we celebrate World’s Aviation and Cosmonautics Day. 56 years ago on April 12, 1961, Yuri Gagarin performed first spaceflight proving that there is nothing impossible.

On this day we congratulate not only those dealing with aerospace industry directly but either usual aviation and cosmonautics fans.
