Care to soar to the skies on a MIG and experience one of the top 10 world’s adventures for a holiday? If flying to altitudes boosts your adrenaline rush, then the Edge of Space program is tailored just for you. Russian MiG-31 or MiG-29 military jets are employed to take you to 65000 feet that not all have been to. Flying at Mach 2.35 (about one mile every two seconds), being a part of such an exclusive flight mission is the closest most people can get to being an astronaut. Lasting for about 40-45 minutes and costing about $25,000, you can experience the hypersonic speed of 2400-2500 km per hour. While descending, you can enjoy some high aerobatic maneuvers with your flight instructor, a certified first-class pilot of the Russian Sokol Airbase. Keen fliers will also be allowed to steer the high-powered marvel machine but, of course, under the pilot’s control and at the pilot’s discretion. The package includes a MIG flight, luxury accommodation, private excursions, and transfers.
All the flights in MiG 31 are performed at the Sokol airbase in Nizhny Novgorod. So, if the L39 Albatros fighter jet flight at The Hotel Métropole in Monte-Carlo failed to lure you as an opportunity of a lifetime, then make sure to book yourself for the fly to the border of outer space on the Edge of the Space program.
