GA visitors welcome in Russia
So says Evgeny Kabanov of AOPARussia, who reports that recent improvements in foreign aircraft flight support and procedures will make pilots welcome to visit the country this summer.
“With gained experience, AOPARussia is confident that foreign VFR and IFR aircraft can fly to Russia, or through Russia from west to east,” he says. “100LL and Jet A-1 fuels are available in selected entry airports, landing and fuelling is possible on domestic Ga-friendly airfields, but please remember that each flight needs a prior entry and routeing permit, so make sure you apply at least two weeks in advance. Simplified visa formalities and Aopa-russia support turn Russian
terra incognita into an attractive summer season destination to explore. Contact Aopa-russia at [email protected] and please provide them with your desired itinerary and route, along with registration, airworthiness certificate (or Permit to Fly) and insurance certificates in PDF format. They are most willing to help.”
