Russians soon will have a chance to go for a stratospheric trip inside a MiG-29 fighter taking off from the Sokol Aircraft Factory in Nizhny Novgorod. The flight price will start from 828,000 roubles.

That was reported by Lenta.Ru referring to the tourist service Travel.Rambler.Ru.


Tourists are offered to choose either a MiG-29 aerobatics program with a stratosphere flight or an aerobatics program with/without supersonic flight (45/25 minutes). Well-experienced test pilots of the factory will be at the wheel.

The factory plans to offer such tours on weekdays; the programs may be combined with a 3-day tour of Nizhny Novgorod or with a 5-day tour of Moscow.

The offer’s cost also includes handling of formal flight permissions, briefing with a pilot, medical examination, a commemorative certificate and a model of the MiG-29 fighter jet, as well as the transfer during the flight and pre-flight activities (10 hours). Besides, a tourist may be accompanied with two relatives or friends.

Travelers may also visit the Museum of Russian Aviation at the plant and go for a trip to the Star City or an optional tour of Moscow.
