Welcome back: new space programs for our old friends

It is always nice when the guests come back again after successful programs that is why we were very glad to welcome our friend from Switzerland coming to conquer the space with us two years after our first project.

In August 2012 Walter Egger took part in zero-g flight, visited Star City and Monino Museum of Air Forces, had a tour around Moscow and Sergiyev Posad and now he became one of the participants of our Baikonur spaceport tour. Naturally what could be more exciting than to see the crew off to space especially provided that the crew is very special since Mikhail Korniyenko and Scott Kelly will be the first cosmonauts of 1-year long mission and Gennady Padalka is going to set up new record on total duration of work onboard the ISS, to take part in all prelaunch events, to watch the rocket lifting off and flying to the night skies?

But just seeing the cosmonauts off to space was not enough for our friend and he went after them performing Edge of Space flight onboard MiG-29UB jet fighter flight. This adventure turned out to be even more bright and memorable since Walter was a pilot himself and how can a pilot stay indifferent face to face with such technological perfection as all-weather all-powerful jetfighter. Our guest performed higher aerobatic himself felt good and was extremely satisfied with the flight.

Besides Walter visited Moscow planetarium and cold war museum “Bunker-42”, Sokol airbase museum in Nizhny Novgorod, had a tour around this ancient Russian city and went home carrying wonderful memories and impressions about his unbelievable space trip to Russia.



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.
