Main Question or Discussion Point

Fly a MiG over Moscow, go to the edge of space, drive a submarine, swim with sharks, balloon over the Alps, this company offers some truly incredible adventures. I still hope to fly a MiG before I'm too old.

Their menu has expanded greatly since I first became interested in their MiG program, but I just received an email with their latest adventure, which made me LOL. Funny!!!

Our new Covert Ops Counter Terrorism Adventure is incredibly intense. Spend four days in Miami training with former Israeli soldier Garret Machine and you can expect to go home a little bruised and battered. The adventure is both physically and mentally exhausting. Covert Ops Counter Terror training isn't for wimps.

The adventure is hard core fun. Here is what a few of our January Covert Ops participants had to say about their experience:

A lot of views but no favorites?

I wonder what their rocket flight cost; probably far out of my price range even in a best case.

I'll fly those jets to get practice until that suborbital flight is ready!

I want to try them all!

My favorite one is driving in artic! :biggrin:

Now, I need to save 10-15K for that :cry:

You can have a group of six for < $50K; so a little over 8K a piece. Is ice driving big up there such that other people might want to do it? I'd never really heard of this before.

The last time I checked, the MiGs over Moscow deal was nice but really spendy - about $20K, and no group deals. You stay in a five-star hotel and it takes a week for the training, but it only includes one flight day. Of course, the price of fuel alone must be staggering.

I'm still torn between the high-speed combat maneuvers flight, and the edge of space flight, which were both about the same price. There was a deal available out of Vegas where you can fly a trainer jet for a much lower price, but I'm still shooting for the MiGs - its a race between the economy, my business, and my age. I thought I was on my way about five years ago, but that plan came to an abrupt end in 2007.

I did the Air Combat gig, which is I think still only about $1000. It was incredible and well worth every dime for thrill junkies.

The halo [30,000 foot] jumps look interesting and only cost about $4K - getting in the range of the price of many typical vacation packages.

I must have read it wrong. I thought the page said $2500-$6000. Oh. That was for the L-39 adventure.
