We Knew Her When...
When we first met Amy Sorlie, she was reporting on IA's white shark adventures in San Francisco for Men's Journal Magazine and American Way, the inflight publication of American Airlines. Now, we know Amy as the screenwriter behind "Dark Tide", a movie due out next summer, starring Halle Berry.
"Dark Tide" tells the story of a diving instructor and white shark naturalist who returns to the water after a near-fatal encounter with a Great White shark. (Hopefully the movie won't portray sharks as evil killing machines.)
Here's what Amy had to say when we checked in with her earlier this month:
"Great timing! I just got back from the set and the movie is going to be amazing! Halle is lovely and did a great job with all the diving, etc. This has been an amazing experience to see it all come together! I will send you release date information when it gets closer!"
Go Weightless in Russia
There's no comparison. Zero-gravity flights in the US are great fun, but they are nothing like a zero-gravity adventure in Russia. In Russia, you experience weightlessness aboard the very same plane used to train Russian cosmonauts and sometimes American astronauts for space travel. The IL-76 MDK is huge, giving you an incredible amount of space in which to float, fly and somersault through the air. The downside, if there is one, is that a zero-g flight in Russia is as close to the real deal as it gets. The flight isn't "watered down" to accommodate for "civilian stomachs". A Russian zero-g flight is a true test of whether or not you have the right stuff.
Because the plane is used to train REAL Russian cosmonauts and sometimes American astronauts, flight availability is limited. The only available flight this year is set for December 15th. Space is limited to a maximum of 15 individuals and the cost is approximately $9000, for a program that includes training, lodging, meals, tours and more.
Or Go Weightless in Florida
In Florida, we offer personal zero-g flights for the bargain price of $2500 per person. Because you're the only floater, the flight is customized to your comfort level. Scheduling is easy. Flights are available six days a week, all year long.
Colin Flies to Raise Cancer Awareness
Earlier this month, Colin McCallum flew a MiG-29 to the edge of space, fulfilling a dream he hoped to share with his partner Pauline. Sadly, she died of cancer before they could make the trip to Russia together. See their story, as it was reported on Australian TV. (You might want to have a tissue ready.) More photos from Colin's day at the base can be found on our website.
A Cheer from Holly
We've got adventures, yes we do. We've got adventures, where are you?
Fly a jet or dive with sharks. We're better than an amusement park.
Incredible Adventures is number one. Give us a call if you need some fun.
(This cheer is brought to you by Holly, IA's incredible high school intern. When she's not cheering for Incredible Adventures, she's cheering Sarasota's Riverview Rams on to victory.)

Life is either an incredible adventure or nothing at all.
