About MiG-29 fighter jet
The MiG 29 fighter serial production, or the «Fulcrum», as it is classified in the NATO, was launched in Soviet Union in 1982. In September 1988 the MiG-29 was first presented at the International air show in Farnborough. The MiG 29 fighter jet was designed mainly to support and defend storm troopers against the NATO fighters like F-15 and F-16. The MiG-29 was actively exported in a variety of models to more than 26 countries. This is impressive, isn’t it? Today, Russian Air Forces actively exploit 200 MiG-29 fighter jets.
MiG-29 Flights for Civilians!
The MiG29 flights are a new and interesting branch of VIP-Tourism and an exclusive activity that is now available to civilians! The process is organized on a very high level to ensure that our guests have a great time during the performance. Any citizen of the Russian Federation or a foreigner, over the age of 18 can take a flight in the MiG 29 and have an unforgettable experience of their life! Until 2006 the flights in the MiG-29 were carried out in Moscow in the city of Zhukovsky on the airbase of LII im.Gromova. But, since 2006 MiG-29 flights are conducted on the Nizhny Novgorod airbase "Sokol" according to the permissive Decree of the Russian Federation Government. We organize the MiG 29 flights for more than 10 years! During this period of time, we hosted more than 220 MiG-29 flights for our guests!
Don’t think that only strong and young people can fly a MiG-29!!! That’s wrong!
Most of our Russian and foreign guests who had taken a flight in the MiG 29 were aged from 50 to 70 years and didn’t have any experience of flying in a jet fighter! Approximately 25% of our guests are women! Even the weaker sex easily and bravely endures all the overloads! Watch the video of a very brave woman that takes part in the most difficult program “Suborbital Flight Training and Aerobatic Experience in the MiG-29”! http://www.youtube.com/watch?t=42&v=9lemQ_WOGOw
The whole preparation procedure to fly a MiG 29 and the flight program will take no more than 3 hours. During this time you will have briefings from the pilot and a special training before the flight.
