We're The Same Age as Our High School Intern

In October 1993, we Incredible Adventures has been in business for 17 years.arranged our very first MiG flight in Russia.  Back then, we answered to the name MIGS etc and people thought our ads in the Wall Street Journal were a joke. (Obviously they didn't know the price of a Wall Street Journal ad.) They found it hard to believe that an American company could arrange a "joyride" in a Russian fighter jet.

Incredible Adventures started as MIGS etc in 1993.One of the first to book one of our "high performance flying holidays" was writer Peter Passell, whose adventure was chronicled in a December 1993 issue of the New York Times.  (You can read the story online here, but be sure to skip over the part where he mentions the price of his flight. We don't want you to be mad you didn't fly with us 17 years ago.) Joining him in Moscow was New York investment banker Sarah Davidson, who became our first female customer. Since then, we've arranged more than 2000 MiG flights.

In 1994, we arranged our very first zero-gravity flight with the Russian Space Agency and by 1996, we'd expanded our offerings to include so many different adventures, we needed a longer name. 

Visit our website to view the video slide show our high school intern Holly created in honor of our 17th birthday. Holly is 17 too, which means we've been making dreams come true as long as she's been alive. 

That Sound You Heard Was a Huge Sigh of Relief

This month, 10 prize winners from 10 different countries flew the MiG-29 to the edge of space in Russia. You have no idea how happy we were to see them leave Russia.

For months, we've been holding our breath, fearing something unexpected might keep them from flying. Thankfully, we worried for nothingIntel Prizewinner flies MiG-29 to edge of space and ten happy people returned to Singapore, Vietnam, Thailand, Australia, The Philippines, Taiwan, India, Malyasia, India and South Korea.

The winners were originally Intel Prizewinner flies a MiG with Incredible Adventuresscheduled to fly MiGs in August, but that plan went up in smoke. Literally. Massive wildfires broke out across Russia, filling the sky with smoke and forcing airports to close. Just days before they were to start flying, we had to cancel their trips and work quickly to reschedule everyone.

Each had to start the 60 day security clearance procedure all over again. Hotel reservations, plane tickets and train tickets had to be changed and new travel visas had to be obtained. 

With help from Intel, our Intel Prizewinner Flies a MiGfriends at Adrenaline Australia and our great partners at Sokol Airbase, we did what had to be done and delivered 10 incredible adventures.

Intel has also created a special Facebook page where you can read comments from the prizewinners and view their photos and video clips. You can also find photos of the lucky 10 on our website.
