As aviation and cosmonautics are our company’s main specialization we were very glad to mark this great event by a number of aerospace programs. First of all on the 13-14th of August our American guests performed 6 Edge of Space Flights on board of Mig-29 jet fighter.
But the next two days saw 3 Zero-G flights on board of Il-76 MDK at once! Our “cosmonauts” from different countries such as USA, Spain, Argentina, Switzerland, Japan, Kazakhstan, Azerbaijan and Russia experienced unique free flight feelings.

People of Earth have experienced unearth feelings of flight and free fall, felt themselves like a Superman, due to 810 seconds that is almost 15 minutes of Zero-G Vegitel presented them!
