Adam ( Australia): We had a fantastic experience. The entire operation ran really smooth and cannot fault. My preconceived ideas that being Russia and expecting dramas was completely unfounded. After getting my head around the way the place works it was great to go with the flow and let the adventure happen. Your staff were great and looked after my wife and daughters very well. Compliments to Elena and Artem . The flight was awesome. Very raw and thrilling, exactly what I was after.
Robert (Virginia): Your staff from Lena, Artem and driver Alexi were fantastic and went out of their way to make me feel welcome and comfortable. Their English is quite good and I enjoyed their company! As for the flight, what can I say, it was terrific even with the lousy weather. From the pilot Yuri down to all the support staff, really, everyone at the base was great, and I have made some good friends both in Nizhny and in Moscow. Yuri is a great guy and a terrific pilot.
Nilo from California: The experience was GREAT! If I win the lotto I will be doing again! Artem was great. I will always remember this experience with the MIG, plus my interactions with the Russian people.
Once Mach 1.94 was reached
Sergei the test pilot raised the needle nose of the MiG and we
headed straight to the Edge of Space into the stratosphere. This
was a pure adrenaline rush... I was
one of the fastest and highest human beings at that moment in
time. I was in heaven...Thanks a million to Incredible Adventures and all its staff, Sergei Kara and all the staff at Sokol air base for organising this amazing experience for me.

C. I wanted to thank
you for making my dream come true. The experience was unbelievable.
I will never forget it and probably will never come close to matching
it. Riding a motorcycle at 145 mph (6th gear red-line) is like
riding a tricycle compared to this. It was by far the best money
I have ever spent. I would definitely do it again in a heartbeat.

the end of the flight and I remove my helmet with the immortal
words 'That was worth every bloody penny'
Spencer, Jon and Danny: Everything
at Sokol exceeded our best expectations, everyone was fantastic
and the flight truly a once in a lifetime experience.
Novgorod MiG 29 UB: Lots of 'you have control' from Yuri Polyakov
and lots of aerobatics from Yuri. Fantastic aircraft. The only
after-effect was tired neck muscles owing to 5G heavy head. Obviously
fighter pilots develop strong neck muscles! Everything worked
perfectly. Full marks to Galina, Marina and everybody else. A
memorable 5 days. Thanks!
