The Japanese Conquer the Sky

The guests from Japan show growing interest to aerospace programs. Japanese delegations visited Baikonur with us during prelaunch operations and observed the launch of the rocket, greeted the cosmonauts back on the Earth in Kazakhstan and studied space simulators in Star City. And now the time has come to conquer the sky!

We’ve arranged for our guests from Japan an aerospace program that started with visit to world-famous Gagarin cosmonaut training centre in Star City. The participants studied Soyuz TMA spacecraft simulators, visited Hydrolaboratory where the cosmonauts practice EVA and Centrifuge-18 that enables the cosmonauts to practice different g-loads.

The aero part of the program followed the space one. Our delegation went to Nizhniy Novgorod to accomplish the main goal of their visit to Russia – to perform a flight onboard MiG-29 jetfighter. On a frosty January day after medical check, briefing and detailed discussion of the program with the pilot the guest performed his long-awaited edge of Space flight and when he descended from the space height performed for his friends watching the flight breathtaking higher aerobatics. After that the guests visited JSC “Sokol” museum.

Tour to Nizhniy Novgorod is a wonderful opportunity not only to have an extreme experience but also to get to know one of the most interesting and ancient city of Russia. That’s why we included Nizhniy Novgorod excursion tour in our guests’ program during which they saw many sights, beautiful monasteries, embankment and the Kremlin of Nizhniy while the restaurants met our gusts with warmth and hospitality in such frosty weather.

So the program was a success, the guests were satisfied and plan to perform more flights. And we in our turn are happy about such interest from the Japanese part to our programs and ready for future projects.

News about flights on MiG-29:
After a long lockdown we all crave new adventures and now when we are finally free it is necessary to take our best chances!
We are glad to inform you that we have resumed jet trainer flights and just for the last week have performed nine flights.

Russian frosts do not frighten the real extreme-lovers. In frosty sunny days, the airfield acquires a unique allure.

More skies, more flights, and more new impressions are ahead. There’ll be enough adrenaline for everyone!

During this summer there were performed 50 flights!

The most popular was the pair sync aerobatics which leaves you and your partner with common impressions.

Meanwhile, someone decided to strengthen relations with their dear ones and to give them a unique opportunity of a flight on L-29 or L-39 by presenting them with a gift certificate.
