Today we are going to the Nalivaikivka airfield which is located 50 km (30 miles) from Kiev to have an air tour over the Ukrainian capital and see how it looks like in the colors of the golden fall from above.
It writes “Aeroprakt”.
This airfield is a permanently operating place for training, sports, experimental flights by air vehicles like Aeroprakt-20, Aeroprakt-22, hang gliders, trikes, etc.
Sl-122 the bee is some kind of an agricultural airplane. It’s a twin-engine aircraft with modern navigation equipment. It costs $ 79 thousand.
They say it’s the first sample of the model.
This is Aeropakt-22.
K-10 cannot be probably called very reliable. Once it started burining in the air and the pilot hardly managed to save the plane and himself.
It’s the projenitor of the modern Tecnam P2006.
Partenavia P.68 is an Italian six seater (not four as it was in 2006), twin-engine high wing aircraft made by Partenavia, and later by Vulcanair.
This one was produced in 1974.
The agricultural aircraft Sl-122 again.
This is a Skyranger aircraft.
Here they store fuel and other equipment for the planes.
The birds are training to fly synchronously.
We are already inside the plane.
Two hours in the air are ahead! Such a flight costs 168 dollars.
The airfield is rather neat and clean. It has a spacious hangar on its territory.
We are going to fly around Kiev counterclockwise.
Aeroprakt doesn’t fly too fast – about 150 km/h (93 miles / h).
We noticed the deforestation area.
There are many extended waters.
Are these cars abandoned?
People try to show how wealthy they are. There are many houses like this near Kiev.
It’s the shadow of the plane on the field.
We see various plants. In Ukraine if people have something they try to take care of it.
We are not sure if this is a church or any educational institution.
A fruit garden grows at the church.
Doesn’t it resemble Cyprus?
The church is being reconstructed.
Kiev finally appeared in the distance.
The heavy smog is hiding the city.
People live on the islands too.
The territory seems to be prepared for construction.
How do you like such houses on the water?
This is Vishenki village.
People take care of the farms.
Sometimes such strange roads can be seen on the fields…
Flying closer to the Kiev reservoir.
Isn’t this island cute?
Some boat is sailing and leaving the trace.
Football fields are of different sizes.
A livestock unit is being built.
This is some strange hydraulic structure.
A golf field was also noticed.
And we are back near the Nalivaikivka.
This is a power line being installed.
And we are back on the ground.
And this is the plane we were flying by.
