The pre-flight preparations will take about half an hour. You can
discuss with the pilot about flight’s program; your blood-pressure will be
taken and you will put on a pressure-suit and a helmet and oxygen mask. Once
suited up and ready, you will be ferried to the airfield to examine this unique
aircraft which has a place of honour in the world’s aircraft industry. Under
the supervision and assistance of the pilot, you will be expected to check all
plane’s moving parts and the air-surfaces. Your pilot will explain the
functions of all the cockpit displays and instrumentation to you, in detail.
After reaching its maximum altitude, MiG- 29 "Fulcrum"
fighter jet will descend to an altitude of 5-6 km when the pilot will begin
performing the aerobatics. These high aerobatics can be performed far from
Sokol airbase but if your friends want to be able to see the advanced
aerobatics, with you on board, then they will be performed right over the
aerodrome. You will be in constant communication with the pilot and may modify
the program or the type of aerobatics. G-forces might be between 3G and 7G.
The Aerobatics and Edge of Space in the MiG-29 program is a very
popular and unforgettable adventure. It would make a great gift to your friends
or business partners.
Our "Country of Tourism" staff will escort you during your
entire stay in Russia, starting with guide-interpreters and drivers, to the high class Sokol airbase test
pilots who do not just provide the expertise and safety of your
flight, but, with the best in Russian hospitality, too!
