Rocket Toward Space in the Cockpit of a MiG-29
Russia is currently the only place in the world where
a doctor, stockbroker or school teacher can strap into a legendary
supersonic fighter jet and climb so high the sky appears black above and blue below. No flying or military experience is necessary.
Virtually anyone can fly a MiG with
Incredible Adventures, as long as basic height, weight and health qualifications are met and there is sufficient time to obtain the necessary
security clearance.Through a special arrangement with the Nizhny Novgorod Aircraft Building Plant, Incredible Adventures can arrange flights for both pilots and
non-pilots in as little as 60 days.
The incredible MiG-29 performs best in a cold sky and can climb up to 20 km high in a winter weather month like
January. That's over 12 miles high and more than twice the height of Mt Everest.
See video of a January MiG flight landing here.
Participants are fitted for a high-altitude pressure suit, which is worn beneath a provided
flight suit. The airbase also provides boots, gloves and heavy flight jackets, insuring comfort and warmth during each winter-weather journey to
the edge of space. (Custom-made, personalized flight suits are available for an added charge.)
The most popular flight option offered by
Incredible Adventures is a five day, four night edge of space adventure including a supersonic flight, edited video, luxury hotel accommodations,
guided tours and private transfers. Custom itineraries are quoted upon request.
