Zero-g flights in late November

41 photos

On November 28 we successfully performed two zero-gravity flights. Well-known Russian Company arranged an unusual corporate event dedicated to space topic for its specialists and we are very glad to see that cosmonautics becomes more and more popular. Program participants had a general tour around Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre area visiting its most important facilities learned how the cosmonauts prepare for the spaceflights, how the work and live on the orbit and even could feel

For the last week Vegitel Company has arranged 4 flights aboard Aero L-39 Albatros jet fighter for Chinese tourists. They totally rocked this rather nasty day and filled it with joy and bright impressions. The tourists performed all kind of aerobatics aboard Aero L-39 Albatros, some of them were lucky to perform twin aerobatics together with Aero L-29 Delfin.

Together with a group of space and adventure fans we saw off to space from Baikonur launch site one more international crew. From tour to tour our groups tend to grow in size and though the major part of the group were Russian citizens it is very pleasant to see that more and more foreign guests show great interest to Russian cosmonautics. This time we had a team of space fans from USA, tourists from Austria, Germany, the Netherlands, New Zealand and France.

Zero gravity flights

Perform an amazing Zero Gravity flight!

Zero Grafity flightZero Grafity flightZero Grafity flightZero Grafity flightZero Grafity flightZero Grafity flight

All of us at least once in our lives dreamt of flying. We have no wings like birds have, but nowadays wings are not necessary any more for people to fly. It becomes possible with the help of zero-g conditions. Let your dream come true! You have this chance if you perform a flight on board the IL-76 MDK flying laboratory like cosmonauts do during their space flight training.

Weightlessness is one of the main specific factors of space flight that requires special organization of cosmonauts’ professional activity.

Conditions of weightlessness simulated on board the flying laboratory are very close to real space flight conditions and thus allow to train the majority of operations in the periods of 25-30 seconds. Since 1967 to 1979 such flights were performed on flying laboratories Tu-104A. Since 1980 IL-76 MDK flying laboratories are used for such zero-g flights.

The «IL-76 MDK» wide-body airplane is a unique flying laboratory, which can create short-term weightless conditions. To achieve a short-term micro-gravity, the aircraft flies in a parabolic pattern that is called Kepler curve, rising to a height of about 20,000 feet, and then curving downward. People feel weightlessness in the upper point of parabola. It lasts from 22 to 28 seconds depending on flight accomplishment conditions and can be recreated up to 15 times within one flight. The Zero-G flight lasts 1,5 hours. Total time of your stay in weightless conditions can be approximately 450 seconds.
