MiG-29 flights: perform the dream of your life!

As we already said our clients are different people: lawyers, surgeons, entrepreneurs, managers. And although all of them have a dream to have a flight on MiG-29 flight, probably the most passionate flight-loving people are commercial pilots.

Not that long time ago we arranged a flight for one of our clients who had been dreaming for a jet flight for over 60 years! He grew up on Canadian Air Force bases in Canada and Europe and watched and dreamed that someday he will surely have a ride on one of the beautiful steel birds called military jet fighters and to see the natural beauty of Earth curvature.

But upon graduating the university he was told that his eyesight was not good enough to join the military pilots ranks. So the years were passing. When he learned he could perform a flight of all his life, he hesitated not a single minute and book a flight.

The Client was so happy that he said that nothing – even the Safari in Africa and Caymen and diving with sharks – could come even close to what he had experienced!

He left us a feedback where he mentioned: “The “Trip in Russia with MiG-29 flight” was great with the tours and the accommodations and escorted so well you never have to think of a thing but the joy of being there for the thrill of a lifetime. Everyone I met was gracious and friendly. I could not have had a better experience unless I was still flying!.. Yet there is a disappointment - one had to leave and come home. But the memories live on; the bond has been set between them and I; and today...yes even now I hear the soundtrack of “Top Gun” and know I have been there ….done that!!”

Amazing Aerobatics in MiG-29

Have you ever seen the aerobatics on Air Shows? Beautiful maneuveres were performed by professional pilots and on sport jets. Fascinating from down there isnt it? But we can assure you: it is even more amazing, when you are not standing on the ground but sitting in the cockpit!

Yes, it is pretty much possible to enjoy an aerobatics in MiG-29 legendary jetfighter! MiG-29 "Fulcrum" is a world known aircraft jet for its maneuverability and lightning speed. During the flights in MiG-29 the aicraft is able to perform several figures such as “Flying Inverted”, ”Hammer Head”, “Roll”, “Loop”, "Combat Turn" and others.

"Flying Invented" maneuver is basically a turn-down flight, when you are able to see the ground survace from upside down! Its probably the least complicated figure. Hammer head maneuver is a vertical flight with a sudden turnaround in the air, while "Roll" is a horizontal flip. "Loop" (or Nesterov's Loop) is commonly widespread maneaver first introduced by a Russian pilot Pyotr Nesterov: a plane accomplish a round in the air and then returns back to the normal altitude. "Combat turn" is a side turn with simultaneous ascent in the air.

All the maneuvers are implemented by professional Russian honored pilots.

Our company has been arranging MiG-29 flights for more than 10 years. Aerobatic maneuvers are included in all three our flight programs

What you should know before the flight on MiG-29

So, the tickets are bought, clothes packed, and your excitement level is over top.
The day before the flight on MiG-29 you need come to Nizhny Novgorod city either by yourself, either accompanied by our representative (if you booked a 3-day to Nizhny Novgorod city or 5-day tour to Moscow and Nizhny Novgorod city).

Well, first of all, you should relax and take a deep breath — nothing is going to happen with you on the next day during the flight. Our flights are absolutely legal and safe. During almost ten years arranging the flights on MiG-29 we hadn’t have a single accident both in skies and on the ground! Your flight is insured for the flight time.

Take a break — do not overload yourself before the flight with excessive physical activity for you must be rested. We recommend you to sleep well before the flight day.

Do not drink alcoholic drinks before the flight! Alcohol may not only oppress your neural system, but also to raise your blood pressure, which is vital to those who suffer from high blood pressure. Not to mention that alcohol will blunt all impressions from the flight of your dream!

We recommend you not to eat fat food for breakfast – have a light meal. Overloads you experience during the flight may affect your vestibular apparatus in case if your stomach will be too full. Dont worry about overloards - before the flight the guest discusses with the pilot all the details of the flight program including the overloads for each maneuver which he will perform in your MiG-29 flight program.

Don’t forget to take changing clothes with you – after the flight you may want to take a shower and refresh yourself.

That is pretty much it. If you have any questions, you can read FAQ or send us the message via email or Jivosite.

Have nice weekends!

Who are our tourists for Mig-29 flights?

They all are different people: men and women, tall and small, slim and plump, young and aged. Lawyers, entrepreneurs, sportsmen, architectures, surgeons... They come from all over the world: USA, United Kingdom, Japan, Brazil, India, France and other countries. You would probably ask: what is common between them?

One of our Customers (no names, sorry), from Switzerland, for example, have been dreaming to fly on MiG-29 for 30 years. He easily passed our health requirements, and when he knew that during the flight a passenger could experience up to 6G’s overload, he had no worries about that — a former bobsledder in the past, he endured 4-5, even 8 G very well!

Another one from Sweden, who was very excited when he had realized that via our services he could legally perform fly trip to Stratosphere with a subsonic speed. The planned MiG-29 flight program “Edge of Space” became so important to him, that he had been working out for some time before his trip to Nizhny – he had been running, rowing, biking and practicing yoga!

Some of our Customers are pilots or have a piloting license. By the way, if you are a professional pilot, you can take your personal pilot log with you and we can add a special entry in it stating that you officially performed a training flight on MiG-29 fighter jet.
