Day 2: Flying by air, ATV riding and fishing

Today will be a day of all sorts of activities: you will not notice how one changes the other. First you fly on a sports plane, so the wind will whistle in your ears and take your breath away from the figures of aerobatics; then - fly on quad bikes through the snowy forest; and in the evening - fish in the winter pond.

Here you will be able to jump with a parachute or fly on the sports and aerobatics plane YAK-52. All flights are performed by qualified instructor pilots, masters of aerobatics, winners of the Championship of Russia.

During the flight you will have two-way radio communication with the pilot, and you can ask any questions and express your wishes. After the first independent flight, the next stages of gradual training in figure flight begin. Be sure to make an appointment [in advance](http://aeroclubnn.ru/contacts/).

Park Park Green Wald park

Today we are going to ride quad bikes in a snowy forest. This time of year the ride is very exciting: white landscapes, snow drifts and a storm of emotions. The winter track requires more maneuverability and patience from the driver. But together with the support of friends it is not difficult to overcome the path. Riding ATVs in winter hardens not only the body, but also the spirit! We promise you won't shut down or freeze halfway through. Experienced instructors will give skill lessons even to those who do not have a driver's license, and will teach to skillfully drive a four-wheeled machine, will help to equip in a protective suit for difficult ways. Thanks to the outfitting, ATVs can be rented even for children. You can learn more about routes and sign up [here](http://gwaldpark.com/katalog/prokat-kvadrocziklov/).
