Hey,

I was flying as a passenger on the MIG 29, L-29, Zero G. Now I would like the F-16.
Any company that organizes such flights - commercial / scenic?


Best regards.

It looks like only one company has ever privately owned a F-16, they went under and now the F-16A they owned is used as a high school mascot at a football field. :D I dunno if you could workout a ride with NASA or the USAF, I bet if your offered to pay the price of the entire flight they might consider it , but the F-16 has a CPFH of like $20,000 so a pretty expensive joy ride.

We don't have such companies, so to speak. Our economy isn't a wasteland like the former (failed) USSR, and we don't need to generate revenue from clowns. Sorry you lost

I think most of the customers of the Russian joyrides are European or even American, most Russians can't afford it.

He was just asking a harmless question, no need to sling insults.

sorry guys, I was being a sarcastic a hole. Was just busting his chops, though probably came off as more dick-ish than I intended. I too would enjoy a ride into near space in a MiG.

Ok. Thanks for the answers. Too bad there are no such flights.
Flight MIG-29, it costs about $ 20,000, so little Russians can afford such a flight.

And what other planes do you recommend? Such as you can fly as a passenger.Is still organized interesting flights?

I am mainly interested in fighters.

Sorry - my English is not good.

Wow, that's incredible, a flight in an F-4D Phantom II!!!!!!

That would be like a dream come true.


I wonder if they are ever going to put in a standard J79-15 in that D model they fly. It has one normal engine and a different one, and it does not howl that much as a normal J79'd F-4D does in low mil power. Any one know why they have that one weird engine in it???


Anyways thanks a million for that link. :P

It would be great to get (buy) a flight in a Mig-17 (if there is a 2 seater available) too. Don't know if you guys have ever seen Randy Ball in his Mig-17, but it is frinkn' AWESOME-
