Conquering new heights

It may take time and effort to become a sky conqueror. But if you are really willing to achieve something you will surely succeed! Just like our guest from France. He has dreamt of being a pilot from his early childhood but life has its own plans for us all and he got another profession but still couldn’t abandon his dream.

He had already flown lots of aircrafts and now long-awaited flight onboard MiG-29 jetfighter was recorded in his flight book.

So the hero of our story took the second pilot’s seat and performed Edge of space flight reaching the height of 17500 meters. G-loads up to 7g and breathtaking higher aerobatics became a wonderful addition to such an exciting program.

Sometimes having made your long-cherished dream come true you feel a kind of sad but luckily our guest left the airbase carrying the best and happiest impressions with him since there are still lots of flights to be performed and discoveries to be made. Maybe one day he will come back to fly onboard MiG-29 once again who knows.



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!
