Anniversary Flight

On April 12 the whole world celebrated 55th anniversary of Yuri Gagarin spaceflight. Our guest celebrated this remarkable event in space style and though he didn’t enter the orbit but has been to the Edge of space performing a flight onboard our MiG-29 jet fighter.

Alexander got flight certificate as a Birthday gift in January but patiently waited for the right moment. Indeed what can be better than a higher aerobatics, edge of space and almost space g-loads on such a space date? This flight gave him a chance to feel like a part of cosmonautics history.

Once again we congratulate you on World Aviation and Cosmonautics Day and wish you to conquer space heights!



News about flights on MiG-29:

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.

Last March our guests from different countries of the world – Japan, Italy, Canada, Australia and Bulgaria – visited “Sokol” airbase and fulfilled their unforgettable flights to the Edge of Space on MiG-29 jet fighter.

See our new big photo gallery of the March flights.

Vegitel Company successfully arranged two Edge of Space flights for a couple from Switzerland.

Despite the fact that occupation of a pilot is considered to be for men only we try to disprove this prejudice.

The ladies keep pace with the men!
