“For the Sistema charitable foundation, this is the first experience of interaction with the largest aviation forum, – notes the President of the Sistema Charitable Foundation Oksana Kosachenko.  — Since childhood, many boys and girls dream of becoming astronauts or connecting their lives with aviation. Very often, the starting point in choosing a profession is attending bright, memorable events such as MAKS. Unfortunately, epidemiological restrictions will not allow everyone to see the beauty of the flight program with their own eyes, not everyone will be able to attend educational seminars and take pictures with famous test pilots. That is why Lift to the Future opens up online opportunities, and thanks to the Student’s Day broadcast, Hundreds of thousands of young people who are passionate about the sky will be able to visit MAKS “.
