Fly a DC-3 over Florida

Fly a Legendary DC-3 Airliner over FloridaSee Florida from the cockpit of a very special Douglas DC-3. This World War II veteran flew in Normandy on D-Day and in Holland's Operation Market before retiring from military service in 1945.

Today, when she's not being used to transport supplies and humanitarian aid to remote locations, she's available for introductory and advanced pilot training and film and TV work.

Fly a DC-3 Near Miami International Airport(You may recognize our Miami-based DC-3 from her appearance in the James Bond movie "Quantum of Solace" or her role in the movie "Amelia". She's also appeared on the cable TV show "Burn Notice".)

Learn what it's like to fly "left seat" in a legendary airliner. The DC-3 is the plane credited with making air travel popular.

Together with an FAA certified DC-3 flight instructor, you'll take off and land from Miami's first airport. Complete just a single flight back in time for $2450, or enroll for complete PIC/SIC* training. A valid FAA third-class medical is required.

Pilots Host Summer Camp

Hollywood Top Gun Pilots Host Kids CampOur Hollywood Top Gun pilots held a Kids in Aviation Summer Camp in Los Angeles earlier this month. Kids ages 10-14 were provided with a hands-on introduction to a variety of aircraft at two different airports. Camp highlights included getting to fly a simulator and sit in the cockpit of an L-39 Albatross.

The camp earned rave reviews. Here's what one parent had to say:

"Thank you for all the great real world learning activities! L-39 Pilots Host Kids Camp in Los AngelesWe are very impressed and he was absolutely thrilled with his experience. Please, put us on the mailing list for any future camps or lessons".

Schedule an L-39 flight with one of our Hollywood Top Gun pilots and you'll be impressed too. Our pilots combine great flying with great filming experience, insuring you get the high-quality footage you need for your own "top gun" themed movie, commercial or promotional video.

You don't have to be a pilot to make a movie in the L-39, but some basic requirements must be met. For scheduling and other details, send us an email or give us a call.

News, News and More News from XCOR

XCOR Lynx rocket planeIncredible Adventures continues to accept advance reservations for future flights aboard XCOR Aerospace's Lynx rocket plane. The initial version of the Lynx is set to be flying its first passengers from Mojave, California within a couple of years and is being designed to carry a pilot and passenger up to 200,000 feet high. The price for a flight in the Lynx Mark I is currently $95,000. After flights commence in the US, Lynx Mark II flights will debut in the country of Curacao.

Lately, XCOR Aerospace has been making news faster than we can report it. The company recently announced plans to establish a manufacturing and operations center in Florida and establish a research and development center in Midland, Texas.  

XCOR engineers are creativeEven though it's now "old news", we couldn't resist sharing this press release from May.  XCOR engineers came up with a novel, money-saving method of testing new rocket piston pump technology. They installed the pump on an experimental motorcycle and took off on an incredible road trip. (Being space guys, they had to visit Roswell, of course.) You can see great video highlights of XCOR's cross country motorcycle trip on YouTube.
To learn how you can become one of the first civilians to fly high in a Lynx, give us a call or send us an email.

Mike and George Fly High

There's a great story surrounding every MiG flight. Here are two of this month's favorites:

Mike flew a MiG over Russia with Incredible AdventuresBehind Mike's MiG-29 flight is a love story. His flying adventure was a surprise gift from his wife Cathy. Here is a bit of what Cathy wrote before leaving for Russia:

"As our 20th wedding anniversary was approaching, I began to think of ways that I could make the milestone unforgettable. From that deep place in my brain came Mike’s lifelong dream of flying a mig. I immediately googled “fly a mig jet”. There were several companies that claimed they could arrange the flight. However, after much research and many phone calls, I decided Incredible Adventures out of Sarasota, Florida was the most legitimate and Mike received a MiG adventure as a wedding anniversary gift.trust worthy. I called Incredible Adventures, asked a hundred more questions, made a plan and never looked back. Greg, my dream planner, walked me through every step I needed to make in order to pull off the trip of a lifetime.

On July 4, 2012, our 20th wedding anniversary, I presented Mike with his trip. In front of family and friends I was able to watch Mike’s face as he realized that he was going to actually fly a Mig 29 to the Edge of Space. It was all that I had imagined it would be.

He was blown away. And speechless. And being speechless for Mike is like a fish living out of water. It just does not happen. The look on his face was the full reward for all my preparations. It gave me great joy and satisfaction that I was able to make a dream of his come true. You see, over the past 20 years, Mike has made all my dreams come true."

George flew to the edge of space in a MiG-29George's story is one of determination and timing.  When he first spotted an ad for IA's MiG flights in "Pacific Flyer" back in 1997, the time wasn't right for him to fly. He tore the ad from the aviation paper and held on to it FOR FIFTEEN YEARS. All that time, flying a MiG remained on his list of things to do in his lifetime.  MiG Photo GalleryWe're happy the former police officer and commercial pilot from Oregon can finally say he's been to the edge of space.

Incredible Adventures has been making dreams like these come true since 1993. Let us help make an adventure dream come true for you.
