Fly the L-39 'Albatross' Over Russia!
Fly an L-39 over Russia with one of the incredible pilots of
Team Rus. Incredible Adventures will take you to Vyazma Air Base*,
where Russian Air Force pilots train to fly fighter jets.
*Note: Access to Vyazma is currently restricted to Russian citizens. Until the situation changes, others will fly from an alternate location with a former Team RUS pilot. CLICK HERE FOR ANOTHER L-39 FLIGHT OPTION.
In a small town about three hours from Moscow, young Russian
Air Force pilots train to fly fighter jets in the incredible L-39
jet trainer. Their instructors are members of the famous air show
demonstration team "RUS" and are considered to be among the world's
top L-39 pilots. Now, you can fly with one of these amazing men
without joining the Russian Air Force. Add a Russian L-39 adventure
to any MiG or Russian Zero-Gravity adventure or just fly at Vyazma.
Either way, it's guaranteed to be an incredible adventure.
The Czech-made L-39 is known for its flying ability, reliability
and the great visibility from both cockpits. The jet trainer is
used by more than 30 Air Forces around the world.
What’s it Like?
The weather was completely clear and the pilots decided they
would take the three of us up at the same time. We were therefore
treated to being in three aircraft doing a formation takeoff
followed by formation flying, maneuvers and a chance to take
the controls. This was a great flight, quite different from
the MIG flight but no lesser experience, the scenery was amazing,
the flying extraordinary. The return to Moscow via a Cafe for
dinner saw us all comparing notes on the flights and enthusing
about everything. ~Spencer, Jon & Danny
think you should do lots more Vyazma. It was very good. Lots
of "you have control" and lots of aerobatics. The L39 is a super
little aeropalne. Very easy to fly, viceless little plane. Wish
I could afford one. Grand finale was "OK you land it". So I
did. I never thought the Russian Air Force would let me land
one of their jet trainers!
~ Nick (who, by the way, is an experienced, licensed pilot)
No pilot’s license is required. Anyone over 18 and in reasonably
good health can fly. Security clearance is required, and you’ll
need a travel visa to visit Russia, so advance planning is necessary.
Flights at Vyazma are available on weekdays, from March through
Choose from thirty minute or sixty minute flights. Multiple flights
can be completed in one day and friends can experience the thrill
of formation flying for no additional charge. Our standard packages
include transportation between Moscow and Vyazma, the services
of our translator and lunch.
You’ll also leave the base with digital photos and/or video of
your incredible L-39 adventure.
Vyazma L-39 flight & hotel packages start at $4950 US.
