Hello everyone, sorry for intrusion.

I'm Ignat Solovey, the cameraman and international relations guy of the only Russian video feature about general aviation (NB: not another vlog, we work in different format that is closer to classic TV). We restarted our English production after 2-year hiatus and here are couple of the first issues. These two and three more are about helicopter sports championship and stage of helicopter racing world cup that happened couple of weeks ago, further issues will be about things... well, less expensive than helicopters.

We are non-political, we do believe in common language, friendship and common skies... as much as that's possible with what politicians do. Please don't voice what do you think of Mr. Putin/Crimea/Ukraine/Syria to us, we have nothing to do with that and never had (although I had numerous encounters with the president as a news photographer... not the most pleasant experience of my life, I'd say)

I hope you (and forum admins) won't mind if I'll update this thread from time to time with new issues... #11, 12 and 13 will be posted in several days, since they are re-edited from Russian versions that we already published two weeks ago, all other will be made later.

If you have questions or ideas for us, I'm open.

It's better to watch these two videos in sequence, as well as other three that will follow on Saturday, Sunday and Monday.

Issue 13.
Finals of the Russian stage of the 1st Helicopter Racing World Cup. This issue is the last for this year dedicated completely to helicopter sports. The next ones will be about different things, probably in a week or so.

Issue 14. New flying boat is airborne... and it's even better than expected.

Part 1. Open Skies 2017 — what general aviation meetups look like in Russia. Also, see new light 2-seater helicopter for €150k and new two-seater airplane with foldable wings.

Part 2. Aerovolga Borey, a new 2-seater light flying boat by Boris Chernov, Dmitry Suslakov and Sergey Alafinov, made its maiden flight and entered serial production. See how modern Russian planes are made.

• Historical aircraft in flight and aerobatics show at Mochishche airfield near Novosibirsk.
• A monument to aircraft technician will appear at Levtsovo airfield near Yaroslavl, and it's the first one in Russia. Are maintenance men honored in Europe, Americas or elsewhere? We're curious.
• New life for Antonov An-2. As TR-301TV (TB) that venerable biplane is now a strut high-wing, uses turboprop to fly, goes fast and high, but still it's good old An-2... just better.
• Free gliding training for teenagers. A passionate glider pilot spends a chunk of his non-aviation business's income to lure children to the clouds... literally. And it's almost only girls that go airborne.
• Russian aerobatic team got another bunch of gold medals at European championship... and that's how they train. No comments...

1) NEWS: AKM-5, a serious light sport cruiser to rival Bristell, Dynamic, EuroStar and RV-9.
Russian aviation authority faces a lawsuit from pilots it deprived of their licenses. The state policy seems unfavorable for general aviation and freedom of flight here, yet...
2) People still fly here and do it good enough to make crowds gasp in amazement, and...
3) ...new airplanes are produced, mostly for the foreign market. The second feature continues the story of Aerovolga Borey.
4) At NO COMMENTS section: a video sent to us by Leonid Kulesh from Chita in Siberia, a Dragonfly pilot and one of our viewers. He holds some records and this flight is at least spectacular if not a record-setting.
