If you have the money, you can break the sound barrier, climb to 65,000 feet, see the curvature of the Earth and experience 8 G’s on a MiG-29 ride.
The famous MiGFlug MiG-29 Edge of Space flight (also known as Stratosphere or high altitude flight) makes the news regularly as it probably is the craziest and most surprising adventure available, worldwide. The Edge of Space Flight – or Stratosphere Flight – has several unique characteristics that can’t be experienced elsewhere:
– It’s the only possibility for everyone to break the sound barrier
– supersonic flying with a top speed up to MACH 1.9
– Altitude up to 20km/65,000ft altitude
– Insane aerobatics with G-Forces up to over 9g
– The only possibility to fly a modern 4th generation fighter jet
– MiGFlug customers can control the MiG-29
You will reach twice the altitude and speed of a commercial airliner. Up there, in the stratosphere, you can clearly see the curvature of the Earth. Countless stars can be seen, even at daytime – in a deeply black sky. And far below the Earth is wrapped in a blue fog – the Troposphere. A breathtaking – life changing experience.
But how does the MiG-29 climb to these altitudes? It is above the service ceiling of the beautiful fighter jet. The MiG-29 climbs at maximum speed in a huge parabola and “overshoots” the service ceiling.
After the Edge of Space part – on the way down, you’ll get to learn the amazing agility of the MiG-29, and the G-Forces the advanced aerobatic manoeuvres in combination with high speed causes. You can experience up to 9.2g which is very intense.
