Through the Storm to the Skies

Late December the weather conditions leave much to be desired. On December 22 when our guest from Germany came to Sokol airbase together with his son to perform the flight onboard jet fighter it was snowing heavily.

The snowstorm was near to interfere with their plans but as it is well-known MiG-29 is an all-weather jet fighter and our pilots are real professionals in their field thus how could we allow to disappoint our guest? Heavy clouds upon the airfield and snow storm cannot stop those who dreams about skies and aircrafts, our jet fighter flies higher and higher taking our brave pilot to the height of 18000 meters while his son was watching the flight from the observation point. One day he will take the seat of the second pilot either, and probably even the seat of the first pilot, who knows.

Just believe in your dream and we will help you to make it come true!



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!
