    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!!!

    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!

    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.
