Fighter Jet Rides in Rhineland-Palatinate
After fighter jet rides were hardly available due to changes in the regulation (apart from the Czech L-39, the Polish MiG-15 and the Swiss Hunters, the jets were grounded in 2012), it became once again possible to operate jets in a reasonable and sustainable way. We are proud to offer you the first L-39 with a new immatriculation under EASA law. And the jet fighter ride over Eifel in West Germany is available every day- weekdays and weekend.
It is also an extremely attractive location. As in Czech Republic, Poland and Switzerland, the flight takes place from a former military airbase. You'll fly with a very experienced jet pilot. He learned to fly the L-39 with the famous display team Vyazma Rus. Just as all pilots that fly with our customers, he's also an instructor in case you are yourself a pilot and interested in a type rating.
The L-39 Albatros is a very attractive jet for unforgettable fighter jet rides. The view from the backseat is very good due to a higher seat position - and the jet is nice and easy to fly for inexperienced customers. The L-39 is well-known and popular from the Breitling Jet Team, James Bond and the Reno Air Race. It is comparably cheap to operate. Therefore costs for an L-39 jet ride are reasonable compared to supersonic jet flights.
Fighter Jet Ride over the Eifel
As always with MiGFlug, the jet fighter ride over southwestern North Rhine-Westphalia is simply incredible:
- sporty climbing and vertical diving
- If possible: High speed low pass over the airport runway
If the pilot will agree, you will get the chance to control the jet yourself for a while during the flight, at a high altitude level. The whole event has a duration of 3 hours. If you are a bigger group, preparations like safety training, flight system training and briefing can be done together. In that case the additional duration will be around 45min per person. Events with up to 8 flying participants per day (and unlimited spectators) are possible here.
You will start from a Cold War era US Air Base
During the era of the Cold War, the Airbase in the South Eifel was a US military airbase and home of the 36th Fighter Wing. From 1952 until 1994, the following jets operated from here: F-84 Thunderjet, F-86 Sabre, F-100 C/F Super Sabre, F-105 D/F Thunderchief, F-4 D Phantom II, F-15 A/B Eagle and F-15 C/D. Furthermore, it was home base of the famous display team Skyblazers, flying the F-100 C Super Sabre.
The Spangdahlem Air Base is an important airbase for the US Air Force up to today. A part of the 3rd Air Force is still operating from Spangdahlem Air Force base - along with Ramstein - and is home to the 52nd Fighter Wing with its F-16 C/D Fighting Falcon. Until 2013 it was home to the A-10 Thunderbolt as well.
About the Aircraft
The L-39 is our smallest and least expensive jet aircraft, and is available at numerous locations. It is a training aircraft that can also be used to engage ground targets. The L-39 impresses with good maneuverability and excellent visibility from both seats in the cockpit. Very good performance at sub sonic speeds make the L-39 jet the ideal aircraft to experience a cost effective flight in a real fighter aircraft.
Relatively easy to fly, good flight characteristics, excellent view from both seats, maximum g-load up to +8/-4G
