Fly a fighter jetPilsen, Czech Republic
Join the Red Army for a day at the Pilsen air base and test your nerve in the cockpit of a Czech Aero L-39 Albatros with MiGFlug. This is not a simulated flight for wimpy air-force wannabes and you better have a stomach of steel. You take the controls as an instructor leads you through terrifying dogfight manoeuvres, including rolls, dives, loops and extremely low passes just a few metres from the ground.

- Briefing is comprehensive, so even though you’re embarking on an adrenaline-pumping adventure, you’ll be in good hands
