“Like many people I assumed flying in Russia would be difficult, but with warm hearted people across the country at wonderful airfields and MAKGAS’s efficient organisation, everything was easy. I will now include Russia in future adventure plans, and would love to visit surrounding countries as well. It has literally opened up the top of the world and offers a delicious alternative to the well-trodden Middle Eastern / Sub-Continent routes. Thanks Evgeny.”
"My son Tom and I crossed Russia from Anapa on the Black Sea coast to Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk off the shore of Japan in our Cessna 185 in September 2019. It was one of the greatest experiences of our lives. The warmth, humour and friendship of the Russian people was a perpetual delight and the scenery and the memories will stay with us forever.
The trip was overseen by MAK Aviation Services. There were obstacles to be overcome, arrangements to be made and changed as circumstances dictate and all in a language of which few foreign pilots have any knowledge. But MAK General Aviation Services team made it seem easy. Nothing was too much trouble. No difficulty was insuperable. We had a smooth and enjoyable trip and the whole thing was a blast from start to finish.
If you’re thinking about it, then don’t think about it, just do it, but make sure you do it with MAKGAS. You won’t regret it."
«We flew eleven stops in Russia and it was such an exciting time that we organized with wonderful MAK Aviation Services. Recommend them to anybody. Do not miss an opportunity to fly in Russia! If that is possible - do it! Because it is amazing flying and great hospitality!»
«Everyone told us we should use the services of MAK in Russia. They were right. The Russian legs were the ones I have worried most about on this trip but I needn’t have. Everything was as briefed and requested. You even arranged great weather for us!
Thanks for being so flexible with our constant changes, and for your understanding»
"I wanted to express my deep appreciation of your outstanding support during my passage through Far East Russia this summer, in my Cessna 182, C-GWST. Your ability to obtain and revise flight permits, and arrange complex logistics required to support flights across Far East Russia is unsurpassed. I was particularly impressed with the speed at which you were able to source a replacement starter motor for my aircraft from Moscow. I highly recommend your services to all general aviation pilots contemplating a flight through Russia. You make flying through Russia easy!"
