Results of an experimental study of aerodynamic characteristics of models of two hypersonic re-entry vehicles (ARES-H aerospace demonstrator proposed by EADS-ST and EXPERT re-entry capsule proposed by ESA ESTEC) are presented. The experiments were performed in a new wind tunnel AT-303 at ITAM SB RAS in the range of free-stream Mach numbers
