Your incredible MiG adventure begins when you arrive at the airport in Moscow, where you are greeted by our guide and driver and escorted to the five-star Metropol Hotel.  You will be formally invited by our Moscow General Manager to discuss the details of your adventure  over dinner.  Afterward, you will have the opportunity to relax and get in a good night’s sleep.

The first full day of your Russian experience kicks off with a  unique breakfast experience. The classic elegance of the Metropol’s dining room is something you would expect to see in  a Hollywood movie.

Before traveling on to Nizhny Novgorod for your MIG flight, you will explore Moscow with a guide and check out a lot of incredible places,  such as the Kremlin and Red Square.  When you’ve finished touring the highlights of Moscow,  you will take a train to nizhny.  You will be seated in a private first-class cabin alone, or with other Incredible Adventures customers.  The roughly 4 1/2 hour trip will speed by.

When you arrive in Nizhny Novgorod, you’ll find our airbase guide and driver waiting to deliver you  to your next hotel. You will be spending the night before your MiG flight at the Alexandrovsky Garden Hotel which is the best four-star hotel in the city.  We know the excitement of what you are about to do will make it hard to sleep, but it is important you get a good night’s rest.  The third day of your adventure is going to be incredible and exhausting!

After breakfast, our guide and driver will meet you and take you to the gates of the Nizhny Novogorod Aircraft Building Plant Sokol.  No one gets past the armed gates of the MiG facility without the proper security clearance.  You will  meet with the doctor and get medically cleared to fly and then, you will meet your pilot and learn your flight plan.

You’ll be fitted for a flight suit, g-suit, helmet and boots and receive a detailed safety briefing.   Together, your pilot and the Sokol ground crew will make sure you’re securely strapped into the cockpit of the MiG-29 Fulcrum.  Finally, it’s time for the moment you’ve dreamed of for a lifetime. You will fly a MiG-29 over Russia!

After your flight, you will have time to explore the Sokol Air Museum with the airbase guide.  Flying a fighter jet and experiencing the g-forces of loops and rolls can make you tired, so afterward, you’ll be taken back to the Alexander Garden Hotel to rest awhile.  Later, you’ll join our guide for a tour of  Nizhny Novgorod and dinner.  Then, it’s off to the airport in time for a late-night commercial flight back to Moscow.

Day four of your adventure is yours to spend as you wish. The extra day is included in your schedule so you have an extra day for flying, in the event of bad weather on day three.

A MiG-29 Experience is an incredible adventure. From the sights of Russia around you to the adrenaline rush of the flight, you will be experiencing and tasting everything around on your journey. You don’t have to be a pilot to fly in this military jet; this is an opportunity of a lifetime for everyone. Worry not, we have some of the world’s top test pilots that work with us at Incredible Adventures.

Advance flight reservations are required.  Obtaining the necessary security clearance to fly isn’t difficult, but it does require a minimum of 60 days to complete.
