Summer Airbase Hours

We just received word from Russia that the Sokol Aircraft Building Plant is shifting to four-day work weeks, at least until November.  This means civilian MiG-29 flights will no longer be possible on Fridays.  The change doesn't affect Incredible Adventures flight programs.  The company has always avoided scheduling flights at the end of the week because of the importance of having a "weather back up day".  The airbase has always been closed on weekends, so if a Friday flight was canceled for any reason, clients would have to wait until Monday to fly.  If you choose a standard flight program, you'll arrive in Moscow on Saturday, depart for Nizhny on Sunday,  fly on Monday, have Tuesday as a back-up day and depart Russia on Wednesday.
