Nothing can compare with the view from the cockpit of a MiG-29 from a breathtaking vista in excess of 20Kms above the Earth’s surface.
There, with nothing but black outer space above you, marvel in total silence at the world below before both you and the MiG powers through sets of loops, tail slides, barrel rolls, extreme G turns and, of course, buzzing the tower “Top Gun” style before coming back down to earth. Adrenalin is the official Australian representative for the Fly To The Edge Of Space experience. One passenger lucky enough to fly to The Edge of Space said afterwards; "I can't describe the feeling... it was heavenly!".

I was probably the highest person in the world at that given moment, except for the people on the International Space Station.
I wanted to thank you for making my dream come true. The experience was unbelievable. I will never forget it and probably will never come close to matching it. Riding a motorcycle at 145 mph (6th gear red-line) is like riding a tricycle compared to this. It was by far the best money I have ever spent. I would definitely do it again in a heartbeat. Although we are already talking about our next adventure I am sure nothing will ever compare to the MiG 29 flight and the overall Russia experience. I feel sorry for those that want to do it but are reluctant because of the cost because they have absolutely no idea what they are missing out on. I can't wait to see the video when it arrives.
Day one: On arrival in Moscow, you will be met by our English speaking company representative. Our representative will help you to get to the hotel in one of our chauffer driven vehicles. On arrival, you will check-in to the luxury 5-star "Golden Ring Hotel."

Day two: After breakfast, you will check out from the hotel and head off for your sightseeing tour of Moscow in our vehicle accompanied by our English speaking guide. You will be shown what we think are the most interesting places of interest in Moscow, such as The Kremlin, Red Square and some of the famous cathedrals.

Preparation will include a brief health examination, a meeting and conference with the fighter pilot, and your preflight briefing on the rules of conduct and safety measures during the flight. Then, you will change into a special high-altitude pressure suit (for the flight to the Edge of Space) you will also be instructed on correct usage of the oxygen mask during the flight. Then you will be transferred to the airstrip. Once there, you will make a preflight inspection of the aircraft, together with the pilot and then taken to the cockpit. Finally, your long desired supersonic flight to the stratosphere begins!
On completion of the flight, you may take photographs with the pilot in front of the aircraft and you will receive a personal performance certificate of the flight onboard the MiG-29 fighter-jet. Finally, you will visit the Sokol Plant’s Aviation Museum. After finishing all activities at Sokol and the MiG-29 flight, you will return to the hotel where you can take it easy from your adrenalin-filled day. Following your tour, you will have an evening dinner in a Russian restaurant with your guide.
Day four: (back-up day for the flight in MiG-29, in case of bad weather). You will have breakfast at the hotel and check out and you will be taken out for a guided tour of Nizhny Novgorod.
