MAKS 2019 Roll Call

Postby Go4Long on Wed 05 Dec 2018, 5:47 pm

Alright, hotels are booked and visa app is filled out. I'll be heading from RIAT to Moscow for 2019.

Who's planning on heading to MAKS 2019?

Hmmm... I avoided this problem for MAKS 2017 by booking myself into a veritable flea-pit, who were presumably equally thrilled and bemused to have a visitor from Western Europe. (Seriously, the state of this place had to be seen to be believed however it was at least clean, and as cheap as chips).

I booked in by the DME Airport. It's a ways drive away, but I'm ok with it...

Decent looking hotel, and given the general cost of rooms in Moscow seems to be cheap like borscht, I went for the upgrade./

Well you must have been reading my mind as I was sat here thinking about posting the very same question.

I booked my flights on Tuesday , Heathrow to Sheremetyevo with Aeroflot so next job is the Hotel booking and then the Visa app and then a visit to London VFS Centre and then a sigh of relief when hopefully my Passport comes back with the Visa stamped and in place..
It may seem like a lot of hassle to some people but I wouldn’t miss it for the World, fantastic Airshow, amazing static line up, raid the Halls for freebies, reminds me of Farnborough ?? ( 20 years back). If you’re in two minds I’d say go for it but don’t just take my word for it ask anyone on here who’s been before .

Just for info, my choice of Hotel is the Alfa at Izmailovo cos it’s cheap, clean and 2 feet from a Metro station.

I'm at ibis Moscow Domodedovo. Reviews looked good and it was cheap. I'm PLANNING on driving at this point. Although I might change that and book a different hotel later maybe.

It was only about $400 CDN more for me to add Moscow flights on to my London round trip, so I figured it would have to be worth it.

I'm hoping to stay with friend(s) so hopefully I won't encounter this issue!

HI,

Hope you guys are aware that the dates are still not set in stone, the original end of July dates are highly likely to be changed to end of August.

MAKS-2019 Air Show May Start Late in August
MAKS20 November 2018 0:37
The timeframes for the MAKS-2019 airspace exhibition may defer for a month, from the late July to the end of August or early September, the sponsors of the show, Aviasalon JSC told Mil.Press Today.

"The deferral is caused by the dates of the Army-2019 forum. Although there are no official documents so far, we’re about to arrange MAKS between August 27 and September 1", said an insider in Aviasalon JSC.

However, the event's official website still displays the old dates, June 23-28. According to the interviewee, the changes will not have any effect on the registration of participants that is going on since April.

An official from the Ministry of Industry and Trade confirmed the information about the request of MAKS-2019 sponsors to defer the show for a month. Currently, the document is pending governmental approval.

As was recently reported, the Russian Defense Ministry decided to hold the Army-2019 forum in June. Due to this, managers of the International Maritime Defense Show (IMDS) have to postpone the exhibition as well.

The International airspace show MAKS is held since 1993. MAKS-2019 will take pace in Zhukovsky, Moscow Region. Earlier on, the minister of industry and trade Denis Manturov announced China would be Russia’s partner at the air show.

That would definitely be unfortunate...

The only reason I can make the trip work is because it was cheapish to add on following RIAT...I don't think I would be able to convince the wife on a second trip overseas a month after the first.

Sadly that happened last MAKS. They made the announcement if I remember right, 3 months before the show. That resulted in us having to reapply for a duel entry VISA and in Canadian Funds... was around $650 ! After having that problem again it was a clash with Army show, I'll wait till April or May, maybe even June to book this time around.

Bloody typical ! 2 years ago I had to change my flights as the dates were moved from late August to late July and now it's looking like I'll have to do the same but in reverse ! For Christs sake make a decision and stick with it ( he says staring Putin eye to eye ??? )
