The Mikoyan MiG-29 Fulcrum is currently the only plane available for supersonic flying with Civilians. So if you plan to break the sound barrier – you either become a military pilot or the MiG-29 Fulcrum flight is waiting for you! There is no other alternative. The Mikoyan MiG-29 Fulcrum is a modern air superiority fighter jet of the 4th generation – comparable to the Boeing F/A-18 Hornet. But it is more powerful than Western counterparts and unbeatable in dogfights.
A German Air Force (Luftwaffe) colonel who was able to fly the MiG-29 after the reunification said: “that’s a rocket – as simple as that.” The fact that MiGFlug can offer flights in such advanced and powerful military jets is nothing short from fantastic. Even today – EU members like Croatia and Rumania still have the older MiG-21 as the backbone of their air forces.
