We, that is "Space Tourism LTD", together with Sokol Airbase created and developed this unique Program consisting of flying to the "Edge of Space" combined with the experience of aerobatic maneuvers in a MiG-29 fighter jet. This program has existed for several years. Why did we create this program? We have had unprecedented numbers of Requests from people who are already our customers, to satisfy two goals – to reach the stratosphere (an altitude of 17-18 km) and also have a high performance aerobatics experience, on top!
At the same time, the demand for flights to the stratosphere keep growing and that is why we provide the Aerobatic maneuvers and Edge of Space program in MiG-29 which consists of two parts.

Maneuvers such as Flying Inverted, Hammer Head, Roll, Loop, Low Level Pass and others, will be made. The flight program for the MiG-29 lasts 40 minutes.
The pre-flight preparations in MiG-29 will take about half an hour.
