News about flights on MiG-29:

This year Russia hosts World Cup attracting lots of tourists from all over the world to our country.

As it is commonly known Russia is one of the leading aerospace countries thus jet trainer flight with higher aerobatics in Russia is a perfect adventure for extreme enthusiasts seeking an unforgettable experience.

Our Company successfully implemented a very interesting project for Danish TV2.

In the framework of this program the anchorman performed 30 minutes flight aboard L-39 Albatros. Our pilot demonstrated highest skills and capabilities of the aircraft performing various aerobatics such as low passes, rolls, turns, zooms etc.

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