Record g-force

On 26, October Vegitel company had organized the jet MiG-29 flight for a British tourist Peter Riddle.

The dream-flight was presented to Peter by his beloved wife Gale and daughter Katrin with whom he came to Russia. Despite the age – this year Peter had celebrated the 61st birthday, — our guest decided to experience being the test pilot in full. While making the plan of the program, he had chosen to the most difficult elements of advanced aerobatics.

In the capacity of the first pilot was the Honoured Test Pilot of the Russian Federation Sergey Kara. Under his command the brave 61-years-old Englishman accomplished the figures of advanced aerobatics and established a new record of «Sokol» airbase. The new record of underwent overload is 9.1G!

Pete’s family can be proud of their relative and we are always glad to further dreams to come true and records to be established!

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.

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!
