programme is designed to allow you to visit the prime points of historical
aviation interest around Moscow and attend the MAKS airshow at the
Zhukovsky airfield - why not consider a MIG flight whilst you are in Russia - go on
take a loan! In addition to aviation points of interest we have included the
'must see' items in both Moscow and St Petersburg. Naturally, there are other
museums dedicated to various aspects of Russian aviation, space and military
history. We can vary the programme to suit individual requirements.
The International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS will be held at the Gromov
Flight Research Institute at Zhukovsky airfield around 14 to 18 August 2013.
During previous shows up to 50 fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft performed
demonstration flights on the daily basis. Featured were the famous Russian
aerobatic teams - Russian Knights and the Swifts from the Russian Air Force. Our programme
is designed to visit the main public air show days on Saturday and
Sunday. If desired we can arrange for you to visit on the trade days

Visit to the Russian Airforce museum at Monino. This trip is by car with your
guide. This has got to be THE aircraft museum in Russia. For more detail you
might like to read my story about my first visit back in the early 90's when
foreigners were still a suspect visitor.
Sightseeing tour of Moscow with guide 0900hrs to 1700hrs. To include the Red
of central Moscow, and the 'National Aviation and Space Museum'. This is with
our 'Walking Guide'. Walking is a more efficient way to see the central sights and to
experience the Moscow Metro system. Road traffic is a problem in Moscow and time
can be wasted in jams! Entrance fees for the Kremlin (Red Square area) can be organised with the guide directly. This means each person can choose what they
want to see and pay accordingly. Any other entry fees for other sites are paid
directly as and when required.
