Young participants of our afterschool program in the Star City met with members of the international crew of astronauts who are preparing for one of the nearest space launches.
Jet trainers L-29 Delfin and L-39 Albatros are awaiting their pilots. Flying jets is a great adventure of spring that doesn’t require long clearance procedures and exhausting formalities. Just book a flight date and come to the airfield. Unique one day programs for one or for two, group flights and many other options — no way you can fail to be moved.
Selfie with space rocket background? — No sweat! Our exclusive tour to the Baikonur cosmodrome provides an opportunity to make a lot of stunning shots on unique space facilities and to capture all the details of the preparation of the spacecraft and the crew for launch.
Everyone of us has had a dream in childhood to fly to space one time at least. This dream doesn’t seem to be so unreal as it seems for the first sight. Our specialists will help you to plunge into the world of real astronauts and to learn how the spacecraft looks like and how it operates. Soyuz-TMA spacecraft complex simulator can provide simulation of the work of all onboard systems and motion of the spacecraft, as well as the visual observation of everything what can be seen by astronauts through the windows or visual sight (the periscope) inside the decent module of the spacecraft.
To fly not in a dream but in reality it is possible — in simulated zero-gravity onboard IL-76MDK aircraft
Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center visitors have a plenty of opportunities to be a real space conqueror for a while. Our tour participants are having Sokol rescue spacesuit training. The cosmonauts are wearing these suits during the launch and reentry.
It is not necessary to train a lot or pass a thorough selection to be like a jet pilot, to perform aerobatics and try jet’s highest speed and capacity. Just apply for the flight and come to the airfield; take your seat in L-29 or L-39 jet trainer cockpit and conquer the skies together with an experienced pilot!
Yesterday evening our group witnessed Soyuz MS-08 launch taking place from Baikonur launchsite. Tomorrow the spacecraft will dock to the ISS and the crew comprising Roscosmos cosmonaut Oleg Artemyev and NASA astronauts Andrew Feustel and Richard Arnold will start their half-a-year space mission.

Launchpad number 1 called “Gagarin Pad”. From this very pad humanity made its first steps to space on April 12, 1961 and following the tradition all manned missions nowadays are launched from this one. By the way you also can witness a space launch joining our next Baikonur tour that will be taking place from March 18 to March 22
March 21, 2018 — updated date of the Soyuz MS-08 spacecraft launch. Join our five-day tour to the Baikonur cosmodrome, personally feel the pre-start tension, watch the preparation and launch of the spacecraft with international crew to the ISS.
