Cosmonautics Day: Closer to Space

On the threshold of the World’s Aviation and Cosmonautics Day thanks to Vegitel guest from sunny Italy got a chance to make a step to realization of his lifelong dream.

Our sky conqueror has been dreaming of space from his early childhood and today he could reach its edge performing “Edge of Space” flight onboard MiG-29UB jet fighter. Since our guest is a military pilot he felt perfect during the flight and was very excited about it.

One more step to the space exploration made! Who knows maybe the next space tourist will come from Italy?



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!
