Russians conquer the edge of space

October came to an end. But despite the nasty weather of inter-season period, all-weather Mig-29UB jet fighters with Russian second pilots onboard conquer the edge of space.

Severe weather conditions, even ice rains and strong winds could not prevent our brave sky lovers from performing the flights.

Owing to Vegitel, Petr, Igor and Leonid had the thrilling experience and the fact that flights were performed in almost extreme conditions makes these unforgettable impressions even more bright and colorful. With full-HD video films of their own flights our pilots will be able to recall those great moments when like professional jet fighter pilots they struggled with the weather at the breaking point of human and machine possibilities.

Take a look at numerous photos of this event in our photo gallery of sky conquerors.



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!
