April,12th — World’s Aviation and Cosmonautics Day

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. From the times of Leonardo Da Vinci humankind has dreamt of conquering skies and space; this flight lasting for just 108 minutes became a great breakthrough, a triumph of S. Korolyov scientific genius and opened up new horizons and opportunities for humanity.

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

According to our tradition we wish you successful launches, soft landings and space health! Never stop conquering new heights!

News about flights on MiG-29:

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!

On February 23 we celebrate Defender’s Day in Russia.

What can be a better gift for a real motherland defender than thrilling aerobatics aboard supersonic MiG-29 jet fighter?
