August Rush: Breaking News from the Airfield

On August 22 Vegitel arranged Edge of space flights onboard legendary Russian MiG-29 jet fighter for two guests from Germany.
Even morning downpour couldn’t spoil their plans especially considering the fact that MiG-29 is an all-weather fighter but fortunately while they were passing preflight preparations the weather improved.

After going to the altitude of 17 000 meters, experiencing g-loads up to 7g while performing aerobatics our happy sky conquerors will remember this fantastic experience as one of the most incredible events in life.

Have a look at photo report below. And remember there was no one leaving the airfield disappointed. Maybe it’s your turn to conquer the skies?



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!
