It is well known that not only pilots can take a MiG-29 flight, but also normal people like you and me, even if you’re not an aviation enthusiast. It is a common mistake, though, to think that a flight in a MiG-29 is just a flight with acrobatic maneuvers, that’s not true. This legendary jetfighter offers many other possibilities.
As a matter of fact, from the many kinds of flights one can take in the MiG-29, one of them is the Flight to the Stratosphere with Acrobatic Maneuvers. This flight program is the most purchased and popular nowadays, even if it’s more expensive than the standard Acrobatic Maneuvers Flight. But the price delivers the adventure to its full extent! Because only during this flight you have the chance to fly to the Stratosphere in a jetfighter up to 18 km of altitude, what cannot be accomplished in a normal civilian airplane. After the plane has lowered the altitude, you may perform awesome acrobatic maneuvers -- “Flying Inverted”, ”Hammer Head”, “Roll”, “Loop”, all of which will take your breath away!
A lot of people may thing that they are already too old to perform this flight, it’s a common place to think that only young and trained people are entitled to this adventure, the MiG-29 flight. But this is another common mistake! We have had tourists older than 70 years old that have taken the flight just like anyone else! The only requirements to take the flight in a MiG-29 are past heart and brain surgeries. Most of our tourists have never flown an airplane before and were not trained, a lot of them were women, most of which had only ever flown a civilian airplane until then. Of course, the preparation for the MiG-29 can improve your experience during the performance of the acrobatic maneuvers, since you will be experiencing some serious gs!
Officially the flights take place only in Nizhny Novgorod. And if you think this is too far away from where you are now, we can say that we have tourists not only from Russia, but from all over the world, from countries such as USA, Australia, Brazil – for these tourists taken a transatlantic flight was no boundary or limitation for them to come to Russian and fly the MiG-29, it was just a part of realizing their dream!
