The itinerary that follows is to be considered as preliminary.
On Wednesday 22 August we will fly to Moscow (probably making one stop on our way there) and return to the Netherlands on Tuesday 28 August 2018.
We will then head for ARMY on 4 days. On Thursday 23 August it will most likely be a trade-day (accessible to all, but the entry fees will be a bit highter). Friday, Saturday and Sunday (24, 25 and 26 August) are expected to be public days.
During these days you can visit the 3 different locations (the Patriot Exhibition and Convention Centre terrain, the Alabino training ground and Kubinka air base).
On Monday 27 August we will return to Kubinka to capture the departure of (a large part of) the participants. For now we will do this from outside the fence.
We have deliberately chosen a somewhat longer tour to give you the option to see and do a lot. ARMY consists of several items and it is very interesting to have a look at Alabino for instance (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MrAf6euIcVA).
The museum in Monino is still open and certainly worth a visit. For those that are interested in visiting this museum during the tour we can organise combined transportation. We can discuss arrangements and payment while we are in Moscow. The city of Moscow is very beautiful and interesting. Planning a day to venture into the city is recommended as well.
During the tour you will stay in 2 different hotels. We start and end in a hotel that is within the city (very close to a metro station). In between we stay in the other hotel, which is closer to Kubinka. This enables you to visit Moscow as well as not being confronted by the heavy traffic in Moscow on all days.
For a visit to Russia visa is required. You have to apply for this visa yourself, 4Aviation will however provide the visa support letter. Please refer to the information the Russian Embassy provides in your own country.
