High performance aerobatics flight in a MiG 29 fighter jet. Book NOW!
The unique MiG-29 fighter will create dramatic impressions for you and cause the adrenaline to pump while performing normal and advanced aerobatics maneuvers. These fighters are currently on active duty with the air-forces of 26 different countries round the world.
Flying the MiG-29 jet fighter is highly recommended for those, who "like it hot".
The flight programs provides for various aerobatic maneuvers – from standard to the most advanced, depending on one's physical condition. There are two flight programs available for the MiG-29, which differ basically, in the duration of the flight – either 25 minutes or 45 minutes.
A person can experience maximum acceleration during the flight which could reach between 7 and 8Gs with a minimum of between 3 and 4 Gs.
One of the important points of this is that the flight program is quite flexible and can be customized by the pilot depending on how the passenger is feeling during the flight. If all seems well and composure is maintained during the aerobatics demonstration, the pilot will continue his performance with the thrill of advanced maneuvers. If sickness or discomfort occurs, then the pilot will modify his flight aerobatics and will revert to a less aggressive and more level flight allowing the passenger to regain composure.
Please do not assume that these flights are only for physically strong young men. We have substantial experience of organizing such flights for 65-year old men (see photo), as well as for women of all ages, all of whom have coped well with all the different G-loads and loved the experience. All preparations for the flight in a Mig-29 fighter jet and the flight itself will take about 3 hours at our Sokol air base.
The pre-flight preparation for the Sky + Space flight program itself lasts for an hour and a half. Tourists will discuss the flight’s program with the pilot, talk to the doctor about the state of their health, change into a high altitude suit and additional special equipment (oxygen mask, helmet, etc.). Customers will be briefed about the MiG-29 fighter jet, and they will be able to inspect the main elements and surface areas of the plane. Then they will be led to the cockpit to occupy the co-pilot's seat, be familiarized with the main control instruments and finally, briefed about emergency procedures.
As mentioned earlier in this page, the flight times differ according to which program is chosen - either 25 minutes or 45 minutes.
After staying at the maximum altitude, the jet will descend gradually to an altitude of 5-6 km and the pilot will begin performing the aerobatics. Maneuvers such as the Hammer Head, Flying Inverted, Loop, Roll, Low Level Pass and others will be executed for you. Having a constant connection with the pilot will enable you to communicate your wishes or requests to modify the program or intensity of aerobatic. G-forces can reach between 3G and 7G. Thus, the second part of the program will let you feel the possibilities of this modern fighter jet and to admire its real power not only with your eyes, but with your entire body. You will also appreciate the pilot’s expert handling in a very proficient manner. Upon landing successfully, you will be given a personalized Certificate, commemorating the flight and your participation, along with a photo-session with the pilot. If you have a flight book, it will be filled out, describing the flight in a MiG-29 military fighter jet.
