Air club in Krutyshki, near Stupino

Presenting KRUTYSHKI AIR CLUB.

A good place to go to for anything related to air, from general information to arranging aerial photograpy and filming. The place is full of old-school flight enthusiasts. I took British film makers looking for materials on cargo planes to Krutyshki in November 2012.

Krutyshki is near Stupino, and Stupino is about an hour south from Domodedovo. The place is difficult to find. No site, no official address. Write and I’ll put you in touch with English-speaking club members.

Airport arrivals tableaus

If meeting someone, especially during heavy snow, check out the actual arrival times before heading to the airport

PARKING HINT:
Don’t use the parking lot right by the airport. The lot is often jammed and it is not unusual to spend 20 minutes just to get out. Use the one just before the airport. Make a U-turn at the end of the road to the airport, and use the car park that will not be on your right. Perhaps a couple of extra steps but you won’t get stuck. Two dangers to watch out for: (1) Guys hanging around pay stations are trying to pull some scam but I haven’t yet investigated the details; (2) At night some may try to get off the parking lot without paying by following you very closely. Once a fellow ran into my car’s hitch.

HINT:
In the new terminal to the left of old Sheremetyevo-2 it is 500 roubles/hour if you park in front of the building but 100-150 ($3-5) if you enter the 3-4 level parking.

Vnukovo:  UNABLE TO LOCATE THEIR OWN TABLEAU, ONLY THIRD PARTIES  THAT ARE UNCOMFORTABLY DISTANT FROM ACTION.

VNUKOVO PARKING HINT:
Massive construction around around the airport and especially on the parking lot. Entrance to the airport building is hard to find. Easier to park outside the airport.
