I believe you just buy a business day ticket, these are four times the cost of the normal public tickets but I can't see any restrictions on who can purchase them. I guess the price alone will deter most of the public from attending on those days.

And finally:

https://www.aviasalon.com/ru/news/secti ... -maks-2019

June 27th - Thematic section on drones will be created on MAKS-2019

The thematic section dedicated to unmanned aircraft systems (UAS) will be created as part of the exhibition program of the XIV International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2019. The organizer of the section is the Aeronet Association, with which Aviasalon OJSC signed an agreement on granting exclusive partner status.

The selection of a thematic section is both a statement of the significance of UAS, and concern for improving the effectiveness of exhibition marketing of companies operating in this field. I am sure that in partnership with the Aeronet Association we will create the largest exposition, and working within the business program will help solve the pressing problems facing the industry, ”said Vladimir Sovetkin, Deputy General Director of Aviasalon.

I'd recommend for the static to get to the showground as early as possible and then head straight to the large aircraft, which tend to be parked together, photograph these while the crowd is at its lowest before moving on to the smaller exhibits. 300mm will be a little short for individual aircraft in the air requiring some cropping during post processing, but it should be fine for the display teams.

I went to the 2017 show on a Friday which is the first of the public days, and while it wasn't too busy first thing, by 11am it was starting to get very busy. The trade days should be noticeably quieter, but like you say, it's probably best to avoid the opening day in case of increased security if there are VIPs there.

Without transport the fields on the other side of the river will only really be accessible via a taxi, in which case the ability to speak Russian would help greatly!


Thanks for your reply. Some useful information there.

I am thinking of buying access for the first public day and also for the second trade day to avoid any possible top VIPs... although what if the President and his people show up on the second day?

Everything is possible. I will just try my luck. I will attend the trade show with a business name. It's always better. It looks less amateurish.

About going to the other side of the river....

Are there any maps available with the proper spots? Any of you people planning on being there? I really want to see both sides of the air show. I can always ask my hostess for help, she can write me stuff on a piece of paper or a printed map or whatever.

Third thing: the weather!!!

If it rains it will be less fun. RIAT in the mud was not a good experience. Here again it will all be a matter of luck.

The line in red is where you can view off base, apparently you used to be able to go on the other side of the river but that is now out of bounds.

I'll be in the show on Thursday, and outside on Saturday and Sunday. As for the weather, well that is the nature of the hobby unfortunately!

I saw quite a few cars there in 2017, so I don't see why not unless the access has changed this year. It seemed to be quite a popular spot with the Russian public, with families setting up BBQs and watching the display.

Cool. Thanks for taking the time to answer all the questions. This trip is stressing me out more than it probably should.

I’m staying right over by Domedovo at Ibis.

No problem, I guess if you do hire a car you could always do a recce of the area beforehand, as your hotel isn't too far away from Zhukovsky?

Thanks a Million for the map. It helps a great deal.

I think I will skip the public days inside the air show grounds and head out to the "red line district" to watch the planes instead. :drool:

I had spotted a church not too far away from there on Google Maps. The church name is St. Michael the Archangel. Should be accessible by some form of public transport or other.

I think getting to the red line is quite feasible on foot from the church. I will not have a car.

I will just have to figure out which transport to take to get there from central Moscow ... and arrive early.

Just be aware that to walk from that church will take 60-90 minutes!

A word of caution... In 2017 word from the local police.... The locals were getting very upset about the amount of cars being parked in front of their homes. People that have been there will know that there is not a lot of room on those roads in the red area. The word from the police was along the lines of.. "this will be the last year for parking and such. That was for 2017... So I hate to say it, be prepared to maybe not be able to use that area this year before committing to such a long walk. But then again... you would probably be okay in staying since you wouldn't have a car.. who knows.. :dunno: The police may just make it so locals can get in just like the village near the control tower. You used to be able to watch from there.. 2017 they had guards only letting locals in there.

Have you tried it before?

I figured out a public bus to get to that area near where the church is along with the metro station to catch that bus. I will provide the info if someone is interested.

Can always find a taxi after I get off the bus. There have to be some during air show time.

I will speak to my hosts in Moscow. I am hoping to meet with a group of spotters from Siberia during air show time. They attended the Defense show this past weekend.

If non local cars are banned by the police all non locals who want to get to the Red Line district will have to walk anyway.

I haven't tried it before but according to Google Maps it's a 5km walk from the church.

Let's hope the Police let pedestrians through!

I'd say at least an hour walk.. as there really is no direct way to the field without cutting through some dense forest and farmer fields. If the police enforce the area. I'd bet walkers would be allowed. It was the cars parked in front of peoples houses they and the locals were having a problem with.

You are close. Yandex map gives me an estimate of 44 minutes walk for 3.6 km distance from the main road crossing where the bus lines are.

That is to get to the center point of the observation field by the river. Then you have to walk a further distance along the red line.

There is a road to get there. Probably not a large road but there is a road or a path. I don't see the need to cut across farmer's fields or forest.

The best is to form a group of spotters and walk there together or share taxis whatever. United we stand.... I was just told there will be Iranian plane spotters making the trip to the air show. Good for them. Maybe there will be some that I know.

I will be on foot. I don't see why they would block us walkers from accessing these places.

https://www.aviasalon.com/ru/news/pilat ... -maks-2019

It's a direct translation, so I can't decide if the second paragraph means they will also demonstrate the PC-12, or if it means they will be demonstrating the higher cruise speed.

July 09 - Pilatus RS-24 will take part in the flight program MAKS-2019

Jet business jet Pilatus RS-24 will be presented at the International Aviation and Space Salon MAKS-2019 in a static parking lot and in a demonstration flight program, the company Nesterov Aviation, authorized Pilatus sales and service center in Russia, said.

Among the specific features of the aircraft is the ability to fly from short runways, including unpaved runways. At the same time, the RS-24 has a significantly higher cruising speed than the dimensionally comparable turboprop Pilatus RS-12NG, which will also be demonstrated at MAKS-2019.

Show Observer’s daily issues will be published on business days (August 27, 28 and 29, 2019) with a circulation of 10,000 copies each. The editorial staff of Show Observer will prepare materials while being in the center of events at the air show, providing readers in Russian and English with the most up-to-date information on the most interesting events and exhibits of MAKS-2019, as well as on the latest achievements of the aerospace industry, defense complex and air transport.

As expected, after the end of the exhibition, the RS-24 will make a demo tour of Russia, during which it will perform a number of flights.

Previously, Nesterov Aviation has already presented products of the Swiss aircraft manufacturer Pilatus to MAKS. So in 2017, the single-engine turboprop aircraft Pilatus PC-12NG was exhibited.

It says 'also' so I guess it will be there too, but when they say demonstrate I guess it may just be static; won't know for sure until show week when they publish the flying programme.
