chabot imagerocketplane.com: Oklahoma City, 10/4/04 – Incredible Adventures, the Sarasota Florida-based company best known for offering supersonic MiG flights, and Rocketplane Limited, Inc., an Oklahoma corporation dedicated to revolutionizing space travel, have signed a marketing agreement. Both companies will soon begin taking reservations for Rocketplane’s suborbital spaceflight experience, slated to launch in 2007.

“We’re ready to start taking flight reservations, and our customers will fly in the order in which they sign up,” said Incredible Adventures President Jane Reifert. “We’ve been looking for a company capable of fulfilling the space dreams of our clients for more than a decade. We’re confident we’ve found that company in Rocketplane Limited, Inc. I’ve met the engineers. I’ve seen their facilities. It takes a lot to impress me, but the Rocketplane team has.”

Rocketplane is developing a commercial space vehicle that will depart from the Oklahoma Spaceport and take space travelers 100 km above Earth, where they can view the planet from space and experience the sensation of weightlessness for up to four minutes. The Civilian Astronaut Spaceflight Experience is currently priced at $99,500.

Incredible Adventures has been a leader in promoting the development of space tourism and will add the suborbital flights to its catalogue of one-of-a-kind holidays for thrill-seekers.

“Incredible Adventures is a world-renowned leader in marketing high-adventure programs,” said George French, President and CEO of Rocketplane Limited, Inc. “We have been very impressed with the quality of work they perform and look forward to a long and plentiful relationship with Incredible Adventures.”

Incredible Adventures has been selling space adventures since 1993. The company offers hands-on training at Russia’s Cosmonaut Training Center, zero-gravity flights in Moscow and Ft Lauderdale and high-altitude flights in Russia and South Africa.
