Veni Vidi Vici

Spring-summer season is an amazing time for jet fighter flights and we are glad to introduce our new sky conqueror to you.

The hero of this story was born in Balakhna town not far from Nizhny Novgorod. By the way Balakhna is a mother-town of great Russian leader Kuzma Minin, who played an important part in Russian history during the war against Polish and Swedish invaders in the beginning of 17th century.

Being an experienced pilot he was familiar with such notions as actual speed, indicated speed, ascentional force, Mach, etc. and that is why he has chosen the brightest and most exciting flight program – Edge of Space flight – combining flight to the altitude limits and higher aerobatics.

Unstable May weather was close to interfere with our plans: the day before Nizhny Novgorod saw a thunderstorm but at the day of flight the city welcomed our pilot who came to the airbase together with his son with clear blue skies.

The child was very interested watching preflight preparation and upon completion of all these operations said “I am going to be a pilot!”.

When we hear such words of a 7-year old boy we see that the sky of Russia will be in good hands.

With a feeling that the duty has been fulfilled our hero took a seat in his helicopter and flew back to his airfield, while our MiG-29 jet fighters stayed to wait future sky conquerors.



News about flights on MiG-29:

Again we are glad to share bright pictures of our recent flights.

For the last week Vegitel Company has arranged 5 flights aboard MiG-29 jet fighter.

This time most our pilots were Russian citizens but among them were guests from Finland and Great Britain as well.

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.
