Kiev Aviation Tour with State Aviation Museum and NAU Aviation Training Hangar visit for pilot Christian from Germany

Yet another business related trip to Kiev. Inspired by the good experiences from our last time, we again asked Pavel for help and are happy to say, this was a good choice!

Aviation Enthusiasts will like this tour:

First we took a tour to the State Aviation Museum adjacent to the City Airport (IEV, UKKK). This is very interesting with some very unique aircraft on display, one of them is the Naval version of the reconnaisance aircraft NATO named Bear. Realy a great Museum and Pavel was very eager to tell the stories behind the many airplanes history.

In the afternoon we made a visit to the University, where a hangar full of airplanes is situated. This little known fact is quite interesting. The airplanes are mainly intended for the university students to have hands on training, but Pavel managed for us to sit in the Cockpits, operate the controls and even motor the starter of a Mi8 Helicopter. Everything is functional and kept in good condition. For an aviation enthusiast like me, this was a very interesting and enjoyable trip to Kiev.

Once again - Thank you Pavel!.
