As most of the visitors to this blog probably know already, MiGFlug offers its customers the unique possibility to fly a range of incredible fighter jets without being a pilot.
First, let’s start with the booking process. Flying a MiG-29 is not as easy as booking MiGFlug’s other fighter jet flights since the MiG-29 is operated by Russia’s state owned Sokol plant – a manufactorer of the particular MiG-29UB two-seater you’ll be flying in. Below you can find the necessary steps to fly a MiG-29:
- Choose MiG-29 flight program (>90% do the Edge of Space flight)
- Send us completed questionnaire and passport scan. These will be sent to the Russian airbase who checks them. After all they want to make sure you are not a spy. Seriously, there is still quite a bit of Cold War atmosphere present.
- Let us know your flight date. MiG-29 flights take place Monday – Thursday, sometimes we can make an exception and fly on Fridays also – but it is closed on weekends. We have to start the process 60 days before the MiG-29 flight takes place – so make sure you don’t pick a flight date earlier than that.
- Payment. Full payment or at least a downpayment upon booking
- Travel arrangements and Visa. Our Russia specialist will contact you for travel arrangements, and to help with the visa process
- Sign T&Cs, Medical, Disclaimer, see doctor if in doubt
- Fly the MiG-29. You’ll be picked up from your hotel on the flight day by your interpreter and driven to the airbase
