Nineteen Incredible Years

Incredible Adventures has been making dreams come true for 19 years.We just celebrated our 19th birthday. That makes us older than pop singer Justin Bieber and older than Google. (It also means we have lots of experience delivering dream adventures.)

Our first ads appeared in the Wall Street Journal in 1993.Incredible Adventures, originally known as MIGS etc., arranged its very first Russian MiG flights  in October of 1993. Our first customers included a female investment banker named Sara, a Miami furniture dealer named Alex and a reporter named Peter. You can see video of Sara and Alex's flights and read Peter's description of his flying adventure on a special page of our website devoted to our early years.

Arranging a MiG flight over Russia was a lot harder back then. In the early 90's, international phone lines were terrible and emailing wasn't yet an option. This made informing the base customers were coming difficult. We could spend all day just trying to get a single call through to Moscow. Our monthly phone bill was often more than $3000.

Fly a MiG Over RussiaPaying for customer flights was also a challenge. In the early years, the base didn't have a bank account for wiring funds, so a company representative had to deliver a suitcase of cash to the base before flights. The US money had to be new looking and printed after a certain date or the director of the air base wouldn't accept it. At the time, Russian banks would refuse to exchange old or faded US dollars for rubles, fearing the dollars could be counterfeit.

Today, Incredible Adventures can call, email, text or Skype Russia with ease.  Customer flight payments can be easily made by wire transfer and hotel and other expenses can be paid by credit card.

The only obstacle to arranging a MiG flight now is time. It can take 60 days to obtain the security clearance necessary to fly a MiG-29. If you call today, we can have you climbing to the edge of space in a MiG-29 in January.

Get There the Long Way

Travel from California to Fly 
with Casey in his CessnaNevada the Long way. When Alaskan Bush Pilot Casey Long flies his specially-equipped Cessna 185 somewhere, getting there is the adventure.

Casey tries to take the most scenic route possible, landing on remote airstrips and at great lodges. Fitted with 29" bush wheels, Casey's FAA-certified Alaska sightseeing plane can land places other planes can't.

The view of 
Lake Tahoe from Casey's CessnaCome Spring, Casey will return to his air tour business in Alaska, but until then, his plane can be chartered for private custom flying adventures around America's South West. You can also join Casey on one of his favorite trips.  Casey is currently planning a flying adventure from Sacramento, California to Laughlin, Nevada.

Interested in a "road trip with wings"? Call or email us and we'll put you in touch with Casey.

Cross the Atlantic By Balloon

On October 14, Austrian Felix Baumgartner made history as the world watched. Supported by Red Bull and wearing a custom pressure suit, he made a spectacular jump from 128,100 feet up and broke the sound barrier during his descent to earth.

You can read more about Felix Baumgartner and his successful scientific mission on the Red Bull Stratos website.

Red Bull may have Felix, but we have Steiger. 

Steiger is planning a Transatlantic Balloon Flight.IA's daredevil balloon pilot is busy planning the first "luxury" Transatlantic balloon crossing. Just as Felix needed a special balloon to carry him to altitude, a special balloon will be needed to cross the ocean.

Steiger has been working on the design with top engineers for some time now and believes he could be done with test flights and ready to launch in a little over a year. The cost to join Steiger hasn't been finalized yet, but is estimated to be similar to the cost of a future suborbital space flight.

If you'd like to be part of this special project, let us know and we'll put you in touch with Steiger.

Covert Ops Not So Covert

Garret Machine of Covert Ops

Our Covert Ops adventure has received a lot of great press coverage. The opportunity to spend four days training with former Israeli Special Forces soldier Garret Machine was recently featured on a gun website and a site targeting senior citizens.

Our next Covert Ops Miami Adventure is set for December 6-9. Sign up now and learn pistol shooting, self-defense and more from a battle-tested professional. For more info, visit our website or send us an email.

Please Buy the Insurance

Our office is based in Sarasota, Florida, just steps from the Gulf of Mexico, so we know how devastating a big storm can be. Our thoughts are with those impacted by Hurricane Sandy.

It doesn't take a hurricane to mess up a perfectly planned adventure. A snowstorm could force cancellation of your flight to Moscow. A broken ankle could derail your plans to go shark diving.

That's why we strongly recommend the purchase of adventure travel insurance. You can obtain a free quote here.
