Beyond the Gravity
In October 2014 we successfully performed the long-awaited Zero-G flight!
IL-76 flying laboratory gathered onboard really multinational team: guests from China and Hong Kong, Belgium, the Netherlands, Belorussia and Russia came to us to experience the feeling of free flight, to overcome the gravity and feel like super heroes.
The aircraft performed 10 weightlessness modes giving our guests more than 5 minutes of free flight while professional instructors of Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre took care of our “cosmonauts” teaching them how to behave under Zero-G conditions and showing how to perform various tricks.
After the flight the Hero of Russian Federation Victor Ren presented our guests with special certificates testifying their participation in Zero-G flight. Each certificate has the following inscription: “You have overcome the gravity, so nothing is able to stop you anymore!” And indeed what can stop those who made their dream come true and got closer to the space secrets?
Besides our guests got full HD photo and video of the flight preserving these wonderful moments for the rest of their lives while some of them will possibly return to us to experience this magnificent adventure once again.
Foreign guests extended their aerospace program by visiting Star City Museum of Cosmonautics, Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Centre and Monino Museum of Russian Air Force and left our country full of good memories and bright impressions.
