American Company that Started it All

Incredible Adventures, formerly known as MIGS etc, specializes in making flying dreams come true.

Love at First Flight

The year was 1993. A young American entrepreneur was in Moscow, recruiting computer programmers for his new software company when a guy named Andrey offered him a flight in a MiG-29. It was a case of "love at first flight". He signed a deal to market the flights worldwide, returned home to Florida and founded MIGS etc.

Incredible Adventures President Jane Reifert still remembers what it was like to sell MiG flights in Russia back then. She was one of MIGS etc's very first employees.

"We placed an ad in the Wall Street Journal for flights. All day long, we'd get calls from people who thought the ad was a joke. Obviously they didn't know how expensive the ads were.

There was no internet back then and there were no cell phones. Phone lines to Russia were so bad that it could take an entire day to make one call or send a single fax to our office in Moscow. We finally had to have a special satellite line installed to be able to communicate with our Russian office. We were spending over $3000 a month on phone calls."

One of MIGS etc.'s very first customers was a reporter from the New York Times named Peter Passell. Thanks to the internet, you can still read the story he published about his flight almost 17 years ago. Another early customer was Sarah Davidson from New York, who became the first woman to fly with us.

A lot has changed for the better since the early days of MiG flights. Back then, our customers would often get pulled aside by the KGB for questioning. More than once, our guide had to smuggle film out of the airbase so our customers would have flight photos. Today, flight customers are made to feel very welcome and the air base where we fly provides everyone with a DVD containing video and photos of their time at the base.

In February of 1994, MIGS etc arranged its first zero-gravity flight with the Russian Space Agency and officially began offering cosmonaut training at the Yuri Gagarin Astronaut Training Center. Other adventures followed and before long, the name MIGS etc didn't seem to fit anymore. In 1996, MIGS etc officially became Incredible Adventures.

From 1993 until 2005, MIGS etc and Incredible Adventures arranged over 2000 flights at Zhukovsky Air Base, a top-secret facility located about 30 km from Moscow. People from all over the world traveled to Russia to break the sound barrier in a MiG-29 or climb to the edge of space in a MiG-25. They flew accompanied by incredible test pilots from Zhukovsky's Gromov Flight Research Institute.

In 2005, flights at Zhukovsky came to an end. Fortunately, as one door closed, another one opened. In this case, it was the gates of the legendary MiG factory 400 km away in the city of Nizhny Novgorod. The Russian Government granted Nizhny Novgorod Aircraft Building Plant Sokol permission to offer civilians MiG flights and Incredible Adventures found a new home for its MiGs over Russia program.

Incredible Adventures now offers Russian fighter jet flights exclusively in the supersonic MiG-29 Fulcrum. Flyers can choose an aerobatic flight or a high-altitude flight to the edge of space.
