Edge of Space Flight for the Tourist from England

Flights of our tourists aboard MiG-29 Fulcrum fighter jet take place all the year round. This week, one nice sunny, but cold day our airbase was visited by Thomas – our guest from England.

Thomas is an experienced traveler. Despite of his young age he has already visited 34 countries looking for the new impressions. However the ride to the stratosphere on a supersonic MiG-29 fighter is not an ordinary pleasure travel – it a real adventure!

During this flight our sky conqueror climbed to the 18 600 meters (more than 60 000 feet). And while completing the following advanced aerobatics program the G-forces reached “cosmic” values of 7,3 g.

Check our photo report of that flight, go for it and send your applications!



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!
