Filming Project for Danish TV

26 photos

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.


One day in Star City

Early February we successfully implemented an extensive program of space trainings for our new friends. Since they are extreme fans and go in for sky-jumping their main task was to challenge themselves.


Baikonur tour – Soyuz MS-07 launch

33 photos

Once again we saw off to space one more international crew. Despite extremely cold weather conditions in Baikonur we had a big group of space fans willing to witness the launch of Soyuz MS-07 spacecraft with crew commander Anton Shkaplerov (Roscosmos) and flight engineers Scott Tingle (NASA) and Norishige Kanai (JAXA) aboard.


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


Jet flights for our Chinese guests

39 photos

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.

Space planetarium

Don’t miss the chance to visit our famous space planetarium! No doubts it won’t leave you indifferent! This is the place where you can find yourself under the starry skies even in daylight and learn how to recognize different constellations of Northern and Southern hemisphere! Planetarium is meant for studying the celestial sphere and training astronavigation with the help of nominal optical-visual devices.

GCTC Space planetarium is an astronavigation functional-simulating facility created in 1985 on the basis of space planetarium. It comprises:

  • Planetarium itself
  • Computer system, monitoring the training process
  • Crew capsules with the real console and devices of the main space equipment used by Russian space technologies

Space planetarium created in 1979 is one of the main devices for studying the starry sky. It has a diameter of 12,5 meters and projects stars up to 6,5 of optical magnitude thus creating an illusion of watching the celestial sphere outside the Earth atmosphere. That makes the perception of visual environment similar to the conditions of real space flight.

Astronavigation functional-simulating facility allows not only to project starry sky but also to simulate flight dynamics for different manned space vehicles with moving of constellations within the sight of windows and with real angular rates. It makes possible to train astronavigation skills with the help of nominal optical-visual devices under conditions close to those of the real space flight.

Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center

The history of Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center begins since the 11th of January, 1960, when upon the initiative of S.Korolev, chief designer of rocket-space systems, it was decided to establish an air force based organization for the first space flight training.

Zero Gravity flights

All of us at least once in our lives dreamt of flying. We don’t have wings like birds do, but nowadays wings are not required any more for people to fly. It becomes possible with help of zero-gravity conditions. Let your dream come true! You have this chance if you perform a flight onboard the IL-76 MDK laboratory airplane like cosmonauts do during their space flight training.

Centrifuge training

You are brave enough and want to examine yourself? You dream of feelings that cosmonauts experience during their real training for space flights? In this case the Centrifuge run is exactly what you need.

Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory

We are offering you a unique opportunity to feel yourself a real cosmonaut working on the external surface of ISS in the ORLAN extra-vehicular suit by diving into Neutral Buoyancy Laboratory.

Egress-2 simulator

To be an astronaut in the open space is such a stunning outstanding performance, but very complicated job as well! Just imagine, how they can stay in a support-free space wearing a huge spacesuit, staying outside their space home, when the endless space is around, and to work for hours there – isn’t it really breathtaking!? Meanwhile this kind of activity is also a routine for astronauts-heroes and nowadays this is a rather regular operation performed by every expedition onboard the ISS.

Sokol spacesuit training

When we think about astronauts – every time someone wearing a spacesuit comes to our mind. But few of us know that spacesuits can be different and the most interesting thing is that it’s possible to try it on and even to control its systems. This is not so simple, by the way! This unique experience can be gained in the Gagarin cosmonaut training center in Star city. This will be an unforgettable space adventure, and your photographs wearing a spacesuit will become a real family heirloom for pride.

Soyuz-TMA spacecraft complex simulator

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, Note that this spacecraft is used not only by Russians but also by astronauts from all over the world.

Don-Soyuz TMA simulator

The main peculiarity of the “Don-Soyuz” simulator is the opportunity to manually control the real spacecraft. Regular nominal flight are performed in the automatic mode and manual operations can be done only under the commander’s decision or command from the ground Mission control center. Nevertheless manual control skills are necessary for every crew member. Now you also will be able to learn how to control Soyuz-TMA spacecraft, which delivers astronauts to space. During the training you can, for example, dock to the International Space Station, that is a very complicated and vitally important task for the crew.

Space food simulator

Would you like to know what and how astronauts eat in space? Space food significantly differs from our usual food which we eat every day at home; first of all it is specially cooked and, of course, specially packed. We have the opportunity not only to learn but also to taste the space food and to try to cook it with the help of the special simulator, which is the part of the astronauts’ training technical means on the ISS Russian Segment Life support system. It is designed for astronauts’ training on the cooking and rational using of space food onboard the orbital complex.

ISS Russian Segment simulator

No doubt, that a lot of us have heard about the International Space Station and that it flies around the Earth and astronauts live there during their long-term missions to space. To get to know from the first source how they really live and work onboard the ISS, to learn interior of the Station – this will be the most interesting and outstanding experience which can be gained in the Cosmonaut’s training center.

Vestibular training

As it is known, first days of the space flight many astronauts feel some difficulties with adaptation to microgravity, or weightlessness. Some astronauts even can have motion sickness. Therefore scientists of GCTC had developed special vestibular training programs for astronauts, in order to get used to such irregular conditions. Spinning chair, tilt tables, simulation (optokinetic) drum are used for astronaut’s vestibular training.

Survival training

It is well known that during space flight various off-nominal situations can occur. But besides that, during the space flight training it’s important to consider such emergency situations which make the flight continuation impossible, and the crew has to return back to the Earth with help of emergency survival means.

Spaceflight training program

On the 4th of October, 1957 the first artificial satellite was successfully launched into space. This was the first step of fulfilling man’s long-cherished dream of conquering the space. The first human space flight of Yuri A. Gagarin onboard the “Vostok” spacecraft (April 12, 1961) announced a new space era in the history of a mankind.
