If you're an aviation enthusiast then you have to visit this place in Kyiv. The simulator is as real as it could be and everything feels the exact same way as it does onboard a real plane. I had tried A320 simulator previously in Poland but wanted to know what's the difference compared to 738 and this simulator offered exactly what I wanted. Everyone was really kind and the co - pilot will most likely be pilot in the future, therefore you should have no problem if you are trying simulator for the first time.
Considering the value ( 1800uah/1hour ) I recommend this to anyone interested in aviation as you most likely will never find simulator that good with the same value. I have checked the simulator prices all around the world and this is by far the best value one. Thanks for the experience and keep up the good work)

Dear Henry! Thank you very much for your review and you decision to come in Kyiv and Ukraine! It was great team work of you and the instructor of Boeing 737 flight simulator making a flight like a real one as well as the communication between each other showed clear understanding of the standard procedures on take-off and landing. Got in the air from runway 36R of KBP (UKBB) airport we made night landing on runway 08 at IEV (UKKK) and next after return to KBP (UKBB) - short day flight to GML (UKKM) with landing on runway 33 to visit the world largest aircraft Antonov 225 Mriya and made pictures with her majesty - Queen of The Sky! And it is all during just one hour! Wish you to become a professional pilot in the future and let all your Dreams come true! Welcome in Kyiv and Ukraine again!

We booked the extended Aviation Tour about two weeks ahead, communication was always prompt and reliable, and instructions and the reservation was as easy as possible.

Pavel picked us up in the morning at our Hotel and we arrived two hours ahead of the regular opening times of the Oleg Antonov State Aviation Museum, which gave us two hours on our own in this fantastic museum including several very rare cockpit visits.
Pavel was extremely knowledgeable about the history of each aircraft, performance and its historical role during the Cold War.
After 4 great hours we had the privilege to visit the National Aeronautical University Hangar, where we were even able to start engines on aircraft and helicopters finishing the tour with stored aircraft, tanks and a steam train on the campus of the polytechnical university.

Once in a lifetime experience and extremely recommended. And for those worrying about the price....it is worth every cent !

Thank you very much for your review!) The great possibility of State Aviation Museum Extended Tour "Cockpits Opening" let us get inside aircrafts that usually closed for visits - anti-submarine Tu-142, supersonic long-range strategic bomberTu-22M3, flying boat Be-12, fantastic and super strong supersonic interceptor and reconnaissance aircraft MiG-25 and long-range jetliner Il-62. Next Extended Tour of Aviation Training Hangar of State Aviation University was full of surprises as well - start-up of the engine of L-410, gear and flaps retraction of Yak-42, cold start-up of Mi-8 and then visit of unique aircraft and only one in the world preserved - ANT-7 (1929). Tu-154 is also great aircraft to visit and so amazing that it meets the hangar size. Then short drive to Aviator's Alley in State Politechnical University with Yak-40, Mi-2 and world famous and the greatest success of Oleg Antonov - aircraft AN-2!) Thank you for your visit of Kyiv! You welcome to discover and enjoy more interesting aviation attractions in Ukraine! Stay healthy and take care!)

We spent a fantastic day today with Pavel starting with a city tour and then the helicopter tour to Chernobyl in the afternoon.

The city tour was fast paced and a perfect combination of Kiev’s most interesting sights. Pavel picked us up directly from our hotel with his driver and drove us around to the different sights explaining everything we were passing by on the way. In addition to being very knowledgeable, Pavel was also an amazing photographer and we have more picture of us from today than we’ve ever had on a trip before!

After the city tour, the weather cleared up and we headed to Chernobyl by helicopter. Pavel had a route planned for us that minimized our radiation exposure and our half an hour over the zone yielded almost none! We made a few loops around the top signs and got some fantastic photos. Helicopter is definitely the best way to go. The helicopter itself was a brand new model and the pilot was extremely experienced. We got to fly low and Pavel even made us a video of the trip.

I highly, highly recommend Pavel and am looking forward to doing more of his tours next time I’m j. Kiev!

Hello Kevin! Thank you very much for your review! I am happy that all went as planned - we looked at all Kyiv main sights and attractions in short time, touch the Force of Jedi Master Yoda and get before the sunset to the symbol of Kyiv - Mother Motherland Monument that correspond to Statue of Liberty in New York, USA. The worry was about weather conditions and we understand how important to see clearly all sights and attractions in Chernobyl Zone. With weather forecast was chosen the best time to take-off from Kyiv helipad and we were lucky that sky cleared of clouds completely) Nice to hear that you enjoy the video of your Chernobyl helicopter tour and hope that you share it with your friends and family so they enjoy the views as you are! Welcome to Kyiv and Ukraine! We happy to see you again when you have the new chance to come! Take care and stay healthy!

Visiting cockpits in Aviamuseum - Great Experience

We spent a great morning with Pavel by visiting cockpits of aircrafts in the State Aviation museum, with many interesting and clear explanations about each aircraft we were visiting. It was a great experience that I can recommend to every aviation enthusiast! The cockpits are incredibly well preserved. Thank you to Pavel and to the guides who opened the aircrafts.

Hello Kevin! Thank you very much for your review and support of Ukraine! We have visited State Aviation Museum in Kyiv with private aviation tour for opening of cockpits of aircrafts Tu-142, Tu-22M3, MiG-25, Tu-154 and helicopters Ka-25, Ka-27 on your personal selection from fifteen available aircrafts (Il-86, Il-76, Il-62, Be-12, Tu-142, Tu-22M3, Tu-134A Ukraine, Tu-154, Su-15, Mig-23 (54), Mig-25, Yak-38 (46)) and helicopters (Mi-6, Mi-14, Ka-25, Ka-27 ). As our aviation tour starts early in the morning at 09:00 in winter time (at 08:00 - in other seasons) and it was a bit cold - good tea from thermos help us to keep warm and nice. Also after the main tour of cockpits opening we have chance to look at the unique cockpit of TU-134UBL (open for pilots only) and enjoy views of Yak-40 USSR-87683 - new exhibit of Kyiv Aviation Museum. The video of the tour and pictures in aircraft and helicopter cockpits will be a great memory of time spent in the museum. The special moment of out aviation tour was meeting with cat-guard of Tupolev Tu-142 which actually lives in the airplane (right landing gear gondola) and get food for its service from workers of State Aviation Museum. Hope to see you in Ukraine again soon, wish you good health and flying safe! Take care!

We had the great opportunity to have Pavel organize a helicopter trip for us which saved us many hours of driving and provided a wonderful insight into Ukranian countryside.
The helicopter was in excellent condition and Yuri, the pilot did a very professional job. On the way back to Kiev he requested a little detour to show us the city from above. Everything went perfectly well.
In the evening Pavel showed us the main sights of Kiev, including the Mother Motherland Statue, the museum underneath (which really impressed me a lot) and we went to eat in a very nice Restaurant serving Ukranian traditional food.
A guided walk with Pavel through the city followed, and it was very impressive how much information can be gathered even in a short day visit, when accompanied by a guide like Pavel. He knows a lot about everything, is very nice guy to spend time with and adapts his tours to the needs of his clients.
I really enjoyed the short visit to Kiev and will gladly return one day.
To Pavel: Thanks again and all the best to you and your company! You do what you are passionate about, so luck is on your side :-)

Dear Christian! Thank you very much for your review. On the day of the helicopter trip we was lucky with the weather that is so changeable in January in Ukraine providing us good flight conditions. I think that special moment was on the way back when the sun illuminated Kiev and you get the chance of clear view of panoramas of Ukrainian capital. The pilot Yuriy is a helicopter pilot of old USSR flight school with more than 2000 hour on helicopter R44 so it is always better to choose and fly with professional helicopter pilot in Kiev. As it was your first business visit in Ukraine it is important to get the impressions of the country, sights and attractions of Kiev and taste Ukrainian food even for short time of stay. Nice to hear that you like the tour in The Ukrainian State Museum of the Great Patriotic War and was impressed by Mother Motherland Statue that is one of the main symbols of Kiev. After long day it was great to spend time in Ukrainian restaurant and drink good red wine Kolonist, taste traditional borsch and Chicken Kiev) Thank you for you good words and you are welcome to Kiev and Ukraine in the future! Take care and fly safe!)

Pavel is truly the BEST tour guide and we highly recommend using his company. We travel a lot and can say that Pavel is the most organized, well-informed, articulate, kind, and professional guide we have ever had. His knowledge, his calm nature and punctuality were key to making our trip perfect. From helicopters to dinners to ground transport - he had it all covered!

Took the T-34 tank driving with 3 friends and with Pavel as our tour guide. Experience was amazing! I strongly recommend it to anyone curious to drive a renovated soviet-era cool-looking tank! Pavel was very helpful and friendly. The video he made for us looked amazing. Thanks again Pavel!

Hello Nick! Thank you very much for your review! T-34 Tank Driving is unique experience for each participant of the tank driving tour and from my point of view it is important to save it for good memories by the quality video... as much it is possible to make in shaking tank) The video goes as a bonus for each T-34 tank driving and is the complete tour experience from the beginning till the tank driving is over) We respect the privacy so the video is just for your team and friends who watch it with enjoyment for sure! Good luck in your journey and welcome to Kyiv and Ukraine for more interesting experiences with pleasure!

In november, I could try the Boeing 737 simulator in Kyiv, Ukraine. I had the possibility to try to fly a Boeing 737 in a very good cockpit and installation, I could really feel myself like a captain of 737. From the installation, the very kind and friendly instructor, everything was great, and I highly recommend this simulator to the aviation fans. And price is really low, so it definitely worth a visit if you stay in Kyiv.

Thank you again !

Hello Kevin!) Thank you very much for your review!) Kyiv flight simulator Boeing 737-800 NG is fully functional classic flight simulator that is not currently certificated for flight training so is the reason it is cheap compare to classic flight simulators in Europe and USA) It is great possibility for aviation enthusiasts to enjoy VLCF "virtual low cost flights" in Kyiv and Ukraine. The quality of the cockpit and visualization by X-Plane 11 is great to feel like the real flight) For one hour experience it is recommended classic program or as many as possible take-offs and landings around base airport. For two hours - long international flight are possible but still short distances as Boeing 737 flight simulator is real time) Thank you for choosing to fly Boeing 737 flight simulator in Kyiv) Wish you great health and new visits to Ukraine!)

In june 2021, I visited the Pink Lake in the region of Kherson , Southern Ukraine. I never heard about this lake before.

I have been impressed by the beauty of this lake, with a real pink color. It's an absolute must see location if you travel in the region of Kherson.

Also, special thanks to the great guide and driver who explained me a lot about history of Kherson city and the whole Kherson Region !

Unforgettable experience, I recommend it to everyone !

Hello! Thank you very much for your review!) You experienced Oleshky Sands which is the largest desert in Europe (160 sq.km) climbing real sand dunes and Pink Lake (Lake Lemuria) - saturated pink color of which is due to algae Dunaliella Saline producing beta-carotene under rays of the summer sun. All these attractions are in Kherson Oblast of Ukraine and to start the trip it is always better from Kherson. Knowledgeable tour guide Lada accompanied you during the entire trip complemented the display of attractions with unique stories about them. Great full day tour with lots of emotions and fantastic pictures for the good memories of Ukraine!

The team is really well coordinated, will have all ready for you and will facilitate all you may need during the trip in order for you to relax and just enjoy living the experience. We went to Chernobyl by helicopter early in the morning and then switch off to car to continue hitting the road. They have all information you may want to know and will have answers to all your questions. They do know about their country,the history and what happened in Chernobyl.

To sum up, you will live the experience as if you have been there when things happened.

Thanks to the team and I totally recommend!

Hello! Thank you very much for your review! You are right that Chernobyl combination tour including morning helicopter flight over Chernobyl zone with the helicopter tour guide and then full day of exploring of Chernobyl Zone by private car with professional Chernobyl tour guide is the maximum experience that could be gained during just one day. First of all it gives the impression of "helicopter view" of Chernobyl Zone and its main sights and attractions from the air: Dytyatky Checkpoint, Radar DUGA-1 Russian Woodpecker, Chernobyl NPP and its Cooling Pond, Prypyat Ghost Town with famous Ferris Wheel and Chernobyl City. Next private Chernobyl tour by car complements the impression of each object of Chernobyl Zone in details thereby creating a complete impression about the historical and modern outlook of Chernobyl Accident and its consequences. Thank you for joining us and we happy that you are satisfied with your experience about Chernobyl Zone! Welcome to Ukraine again and again - there are much more to discover!)
