Squadron of «US pilots» performed their personal air show

On August12, 2012 Russia celebrated the 100th anniversary of the Air Force. Performances of aerobatic teams in Zhukovski demonstrated that Russian pilots are the world-best in flying combat airplanes

Continuing the anniversary celebration, on August 13 and 14 our company arranged our own air show with Mig-29 jet fighter, where six US tourists were involved

Matt, Peter, Yanik, Benjamin, Jeffrey and Chi ho made a real competition among each other with help of experience and professionalism of Russian test pilots – Sergei Kara and Andrei Pechenkin.

G-loads of 6.5 G, 7G, 7.2G, 8G, 8.2G, 8.5G, at the same time all «US pilots» completed the «Edge of space» flights and watched the Earth from the altitude greater than 20 kilometers, and accomplished aerobatics maneuvers would make envious even professional pilots

Joy, delight, emotional outburst, happiness and satisfaction from perfectly completed flights can be positively called a personal air show, conducted by Vegitel for our guests.



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!
