Lifelong readiness to fly

We go on with our reports from the takeoff runway of Sokol airbase. Today we have arranged a flight for TV Company from UAE.

In comparison with yesterday flight arranged for Japanese guests the weather changed dramatically, the sky was cloudy with light snow falling but our pilots are always ready to fly through thick and thin and against all odds.

Flying to the edge of space, experiencing g-loads up to 7g and talking to our qualified pilots the flight participant developed tremendous and sincere respect for the people of such heroic, dangerous and difficult profession ready to defend their Motherland under any circumstances and any conditions.



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!
