Experience the aerial adventure of a lifetime: the Edge of Space Flight in the mighty MiG-29 Fulcrum. Typically reserved for the likes of astronauts, you’ll reach the dizzying altitude of 20-25km – that’s twice the height of a passenger plane! Following a pre-flight briefing with the instructor and ground staff at Russia’s world-famous Sormovo Airfield, you’ll throw on a G-suit and get strapped into the incredible MiG-29. You’ll soar to 80,000ft, breaking through the sound barrier before reaching the very edge of the atmosphere. Marvel the jaw-dropping view of the curvature of the Earth; a sight that is, quite literally, out of this world.
