We have supported the national the Ukrainian Aeronautical Society’s flash mob, consolidating its achievements by introducing a professional holiday.
On September 15th, from 12 settlements the organisers managed to launch 31 balloons into the sky. With the help of FlyTech technology and a special coordination group, the National Register of Ukraine registered a record. We decided that this event should become a part of the history of Ukraine. September 15th is the official Day of Aeronautics of Ukraine. Even Wikipedia knows about that. Also, the chosen data has a symbolic meaning: in September 1783 was the day, when the living creatures flew for the first time (a duck, a rooster, and a sheep).
A new holiday - it's good, but we decided to make aeronautics more real to people. For the contest on social media platforms, the NEBO team have developed the Instagram mask “Flying mood”. By posting a photo or video with mask, and by tagging our agency and the aeronautical society, one of the participants is getting an opportunity to win flight on a hot air balloon.
