As you’ll see in the short video below, renting a jet for your entertainment is totally possible as long as you’re willing to travel to Russia. You heard that correctly: It costs $18,000 to rent an actual jet fighter that would normally be used for war rather than leisure activities. Once inside the MiG-29 airplane, you’ll need approximately 50 minutes to get to 70,000 feet in the air, atop the clouds. And the experience seems to be spectacular.
Flying at supersonic speeds, hitting up to 9Gs and experiencing weightlessness for a few seconds in the stratosphere should be one experience to remember. And yes, before you have to ask, for that price you’ll actually get to fly the plane around once you’re up there.
