Edge of Space Race

Experience has proven that even the most luxurious racecars men of all ages dream of pale in comparison with a jetfighter! To make it sure a well-known Ferrari race car test driver came to Nizhniy Novgorod Sokol Airbase. Being well-prepared for high speeds and g-loads and willing to test both himself and the aircraft he has chosen the most impressive program – Edge of Space Flight.

This adventure shifted all his expectations indeed: the aircraft flew to the height of 18300 meters and after that performed the inverted flight maneuver. Later there were all breathtaking higher aerobatics possible including tailslide, knife maneuvers, combat turns, rolls, etc., g-loads up to 8 g and burst of adrenaline.

To conclude the program our sky conqueror visited Sokol airbase museum and then left Nizhny Novgorod happy with this experience.

If you still doubt try it yourself!



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!
