Edge of space flight aboard MiG-29 jet fighter is a unique exclusive program most popular with our guests from all over the world.
You take a seat in second pilot’s cockpit of miG-29 fighter. Under experienced test pilot control the fighter accelerates to 1800 km/h and climbs up to the altitude of 17-19 km. You will reach the Edge of Space that is two times higher that the altitude of ordinary passenger jets. In the Edge of space the sun is brighter; you can see the space blackness over your head and the horizon curve.
From such altitude the Earth will look like a satellite map to you. Due to MiG-29 panoramic cockpit windows you will enjoy fantastic views to the full extent.
Even such advanced jet fighter as MiG-29 is not able to stay in the Edge of Space over a long period of time and after a few minutes you will start descending. But that is not the end of your flight program! After a little descent the fighter will perform stunning higher aerobatics at supersonic speed.
The pilot will show you everything MiG-29 is up to performing such aerobatics as loop, tail-slide, rolls, turns, inverted flight etc. from the simplest to most complex in accordance with your physical state. Some of our gusts prefer “light” program while the others prefer to challenge themselves.
During the flight you will wear high altitude suit that will protect your body from g-loads and communicate with the pilot discussing flight program on-line.
С разрешения летчика-испытателя и под его контролем в определенные моменты возможна краткосрочная передача управления самолетом в ваши руки.
Попробуйте лично пилотировать сверхзвуковой истребитель и самостоятельно выполнить некоторые элементы высшего пилотажа!
Полет в стратосферу и следующая за ним программа высшего пилотажа совокупно длятся около 45 минут, однако эмоций и воспоминаний хватит на всю жизнь!
There are almost no age or sex limitations! The oldest of our sky conquerors was 71 years, the ladies made up about one-third of our pilots. It is you to determine the complexity and the content of your flight program during preflight briefing.
We may perform up to three flights a day. So your friend or family members may follow your steps and conquer Edge of space right after you.
Both Russian and foreign citizens are allowed to fly MiG-29. You may either take attendants to watch your air show.
Edges of space flights are performed at Sokol airbase in Nizhny Novgorod.
This is the world’s only place where touristic jet fighters flights are performed.
Nizhny Novgorod is about 470 kilometers far from Moscow.
You can get there either by high-speed train (3,5 hours), by plane (1 hour) of by car.
A unique movie about your flight will make a good bonus to your adventure. We install several special HD-cameras both in the cockpit and on the outer surface of the fighter and make recording of your communications with the pilot. Besides in the course of your on-ground preflight preparations and during post-flight operations you will be followed by photographer and operator.
Thus you will be able to share your emotions with your dears showing them professional movie in a special multiangle format, which makes it possible to change cameras at any moment of time switching the angle and the view and moreover displaying data about current flight parameters (velocity, Mach number, altitude and G-loads) of every moment of time.
We will be glad to answer your questions about MiG-29 jet fighter flights.
Flights are performed on weekdays only.
The flights are possible for people reached the age of 18.
Apart of the flight we will either be glad to arrange for you the following services:
