A person should be in the age bracket of 18-70, but if you are out of this range, we can then
discuss the matter individually. Apart from the age, a person should be in good health. Medical
requirements are not tough for tourist flyers. Although with an exception to those with a history
of brain, heart, or/and back surgery. It’s pretty easy to clear the checks done by the medical officer
present before the flight as it’s more of a formal inspection of blood pressure, general fitness, and
just to testify your previous claims about your health. We suggest for you to get yourself medically checked
with your local doctor initially.
There’ve been lots of flyers before in the age bracket of 60-70 years and have done well in their flights. If someone by any chance feels squeamish or unwell, the pilot then takes the decision about the flight program. Taking your health into consideration, if serious, he may take you down safely.
No medical certificates are required as such and of around 200 flights that have been airborne in the past 7 years, there has never been a single case where a flyer was rejected on medical grounds.
Such flights are performed only in one place in the world - at the Sokol airbase in Nizhny Novgorod, Russia (450 km from Moscow). Sokol airbase is not just a flight base - it’s also the birth place of MiG-29, so you can be assured maximum level of safety and service. If you want to fly the legendary and modern jet - welcome to Sokol!
There are several options to arrive to Nizhny Novgorod. You can fly through Moscow and get a train or a flight to Nizhny Novgorod. We offer MiG-29 packages based on 5 days via Moscow or 3 days within Nizhny Novgorod. Or you can purchase a Flight only and arrange all your travel details by yourself. You always have a choice with us. But the most popular and recommended package is a journey through Moscow. You combine a great flight experience with understanding of Russian life through an informative tour within its capital. Moscow is really a must see destination. And the airline flights to Moscow are cheaper.
We are a full service adventure touristic company and of course we provide all additional services for you. But if you want to buy just a flight - it is also possible. The level of our service is VIP, because all our clients are also VIP for us. We can provide you the contacts of our previous clients and you can talk them directly to receive honest feedback.
You should book your flight and choose a date 65 days in advance. Such requirements are applied due to long Security Clearance process. Access to the Sokol airbase is restricted for civilians. We start reservations after we sign a contract with the client.
Medical requirements are rather easy for tourists. You must understand that good health is necessary. But generally there are no special requirements. The flights are prohibited only for people who have had heart, back, and/or brain surgery. We are sure that you will be permitted for the flight at the medical check right before the flight; because it’s more of a formal inspection including blood pressure check and general briefing with a doctor about your claims. If you wish - you can check your health in advance with your local doctor. You don’t need to give us any medical certificates. There are a lot of tourists at the age of 60-70 years and they performed their flights in MiG-29 without any problems. These Flights have been organised for more than 7 years and there have been more than 200 flights already. There were no cases when tourists could not pass medical check or were not allowed to fly in MiG- 29.
Yes. To perform a flight you must be aged between 18 to 70. If you are out of this range, we can discuss it individually.
You can pay via bank invoice according to your contract to our currency account. If you order the flight in advance, before 3 months and more, we sign a contract and your payment will be divided into 2 parts. You pay 20% first on booking and 80% not later than 30-40 days before the flight. If the flight does not take place because of our fault, we will return all the money.
The preparation time is about 2 hours and includes a briefing with your pilot about the flight program and manoeuvres, medical check, dressing to the G-suits, technical training about the aircraft, cockpit training. You can see the detailed information at Your day at Sokol airbase in our proposal.
We will do our best to follow your requirements. Just contact us in advance and we will try to arrange the additional points in your journey and also in your MiG Flight program. Of course, your wishes are limited by technical security requirements.

Yes. You can make a several reservation package.
All equipment and clothes will be provided to you at the airbase.
We highly recommend you take out travel insurance for your trip in case you are prevented from attending due to illness. Then your out-of-pocket expenses may be covered by your travel insurance.
Most likely not, provided you follow our simple guidelines. Less than 5% of people are actually sick during a flight. We ask that you avoid alcohol for 24 hours before the Flight. Eat light meals at the usual times on the day of the flight. Also avoid taking anti-nausea medication, as it tends to make you sick.
No. Only an authorised camera man can film at the base. We recommend you to order DVD film and photos package together with your tour.
Of course, you may take 1-3 persons with you to see your MiG-29 Flight. They also must send us copies of their passports and questionnaires. They will accompany you at the air base; they will see your preparation before the Flight, medical check, changing clothes, etc. But they won’t be able to come close to the aircraft. They will see your taking-off and landing at the distance of 400 meters from the aircraft.
Yes. We arrange special insurance on any emergency Accident during the Flight.
The price is strongly depended on the fuel price. Anything from 3 to 5 tons of fuel is used for one Flight. Also, about 120 employees of Sokol are involved in the Flight performance - security, navigation, doctors, firefighters, technical staff, pilot, special laboratories, etc. Your safety is our priority and we prefer not to compromise on this.
Yes, sure. We have a system of Gift Certificates and you can arrange such a great and unique gift for your dear ones. This gift will stay in their memory forever.
MiG-29 is available for all and we have got a lot of pretty ladies who flew like top-guns. The best flight for women is our Edge of Space Flight, because it’s the most notable flight for unearthly impressions.
MiG-29 flights are available all year round. But the best seasons for flights are in spring, summer, and autumn.
