Charitybuzz (www.charitybuzz.com)  raises funds for nonprofits through innovative online auctions. Right now, Charitybuzz is auctioning off the “Fly to the Edge of Space” Package to benefit Let ’em Play, a charitable organization that provides funds for youth to participate in sports, entertainment and educational programs who otherwise would not be able to afford to.

This package is for the true daredevil who wants to see something only a very, very few number of people have ever seen – the true edge of Space. This is where the blue of our planets atmosphere meets the black of space, the stratosphere.  One lucky bidder can fly to this place in a Mig-29, one of the most famous and impressive of all the Russian fighter jets. After the jet comes back to normal heights, it will perform as many of the incredible acrobatics that this legendary fighter aircraft can do that the winner’s body can take! Maneuvers such as Flying Inverted, the Hammer Head, the Roll, a Loop, a Low Level Pass and others, will be made.

After reaching its maximum altitude at the edge of space, the MiG- 29 “Fulcrum” fighter jet will descend to an altitude of 5-6 km when the pilot will begin performing the aerobatics. The winning bidder will be in constant communication with the pilot and may modify the program or the type of aerobatics. G-forces might be between 3G and 7G.

Readers can bid on this package by going to: ” href=”http://www.charitybuzz.com/catalog_items/113120?preview=1>”>http://www.charitybuzz.com/catalog_items/113120?preview=1>>
