Edge of space flight for Julia Li

On the 10th, May our company has met the guest from China, whose name is Julia Li. Julia is the first woman of China, who has performed the “Edge of Space” flight on MiG-29. Also Julia is one of the most impressive businesswomen of the world. She is the founder of HCD Global, a leading education technology group based in China.

Her visit took place as part of a mission to support innovative education through the experience of space travel.

Nevertheless Julia’s flight was not only business, it sooner was realization of her blue child’s dream.

After the flight Julia said:
«Today’s voyage also has personal significance. I have long had a fear of heights. I continue fighting to stretch my ‘comfort zone’ to overcome this fear. In sharing my experience, I hope that others will be inspired to face their own challenges with a positive attitude. It is core to the process of learning and growing.”

It’s also worth mentioning, that longing to overcome the fear of heights Julia Li raised to the height of about 20 km!



News about flights on MiG-29:

Again we are glad to share bright pictures of our recent flights.

For the last week Vegitel Company has arranged 5 flights aboard MiG-29 jet fighter.

This time most our pilots were Russian citizens but among them were guests from Finland and Great Britain as well.

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.
