Fly a MiG Over Moscow

MiG Flights FAQ

Please call us 800-644-7382 to answer any other questions you may have.

How do I know you can really arrange flights? American company Incredible Adventures has been arranging MiG flights in Russia since 1993. We were the first company offer MiG flights in Russia and have arranged more fighter jet adventures around the world than any other company. Thousands of past customers will vouch for us. (Feel free to ask for references.)

Do I have to be a pilot? No. Our customers range from experienced pilots to those who have never flown before.

Are there age restrictions? Yes. Typically, one must be between the ages of 18 and 80 to fly. Some exceptions may be made.

Flying MiGs MAY BE ADDICTIVE!Will I get to fly the plane? Yes, each plane features dual controls. Your Russian pilot will demonstrate a maneuver and then invite you to repeat it. Obviously, the more flying experience you have, the more you will be able to control the plane during complex maneuvers. The amount of stick-time can also depend on the selected flight profile.

Can I fly more than once? Definitely! You can complete more than one MiG flight at the Sokol Base and you can add an L-39 flight near Moscow. You can also add a detailed tour of Star City, home to the Yuri Gagarin Cosmonaut Training Center.

Can I change the itinerary? Definitely! This is YOUR dream. You are welcome to buy just a flight and make all hotel and transfer arrangements yourself. Or, you can tell us what you want and we'll do our best to make it happen!

What does the pre-flight medical involve? You will be asked to complete a questionnaire answering general questions about your medical history that will be presented to the air base doctor prior to your arrival in Russia. It is also important that you be examined by your own medical practitioner and certified fit to complete this adventure. Anyone over the age of 40 may be required to present evidence of a recent EKG/ECG and based on the opinion of air base doctors, may be asked to provide additional information or undergo additional testing. Doctors are concerned with any existing condition that may be aggravated by the stress of a flight. Potential problems include excessively high blood pressure, heart trouble, kidney stones and gallstones. At the base in Russia, your blood pressure may be checked and you may be asked to ride an exercise bike, etc.

How long are the flights? Typical flights are 40 to 45 minutes from start to finish. Some may be slightly shorter or longer, depending on the jet and adventure purchased. Ask your sales representative for more information.

Can I bring my camera? No. You'll get hundreds of great digital photos of your flying adventure as part of your package but regulations say that they must be taken by the airbase's professional photographer. This means you can focus on the excitement of flying and leave the picture-taking to a professional! Most packages also include a professionally-edited video of your adventure that is sent to you shortly after your fighter jet flight.

What kind of clothing do I need? You'll want to wear comfortable clothing suited to the time of year, and take a complete change of clothes (including underwear) along with you. Flying fighter jets is sweaty business. After your flight, we think you'll want to take advantage of the shower in the locker room and change into clean, dry clothes. You'll need to wear sturdy boots during the flight itself for safety reasons, but the base can loan you a pair. They'll also fit you with a helmet and flight suit. If you'd like to purchase a personalized flight suit you can take home with you, let us know in advance.

Who are the pilots? Our pilots are among the top test pilots in Russia. They are employed by the Nizhny Novgorod Aircraft Plant Sokol to test planes. Bios of our main pilots can be found on our Pilots Page.

What and where is Sokol? All Incredible Adventures flights take place at the Sokol Plant in the city of Nizhny Novorod. The Sokol Aircraft Building Plant has been building MiGs for over 70 years and employs almost 8000 people. Nizhny is Russia's third largest city and has a population of over 2 million. The town is about 400 km east of Moscow and used to be called Gorky. If you begin and end your adventure in Moscow, we will make arrangements to get you to and from Nizhny by luxury train. If you'd rather begin and end your trip in Nizhny Novgorod and never visit Moscow, let us know and we can provide you with a custom itinerary and pricing.

How do I obtain Security Clearance? No one can enter the base without security clearance. To obtain clearance, the following information must be provided to Incredible Adventures no less than 60 days prior to your desired flight date: full name, passport number, passport expiration date, citizenship, occupation.

What else can I do in Moscow? Moscow is an ancient city with a history of more than 950 years. This is of course the capital of the country and center of Russian culture. The fine art galleries and historical and military museums are all worthy of visits. A visit to the Kremlin is almost mandatory. If you come during the theater season our staff will do their best to get tickets to the Bolshoi or Kremlin Ballet or perhaps to the Moscow Circus if you wish. Today's Moscow is an exciting city with a wide array of clubs, restaurants, casinos, theatres, sporting events, theaters and shops to choose from. Although the city is now among the most expensive in the world, you will have no problem finding restaurants to suit your personal taste, be it McDonald's or the finest continental or Russian cuisine. Our staff will be happy to provide you with other suggestions for your free time.
