Fighter Pilot Experience Fly a Air Combat Mission fly a fighter plane pilot for the day

This is the incredible world of the fighter pilot...

Turn your world upside down (literally!) as you carve through the air at the controls of a magnificent SIAI Marchetti SF260. The sky is yours for the taking as you unleash the power of one of the ultimate military fighting machines in an aerial combat adventure that'll send your heart racing.

Learn up to six real fighter pilot maneuvers from the best of the best as you take the controls of a legendary aircraft that can pull +6 G forces and reach 260 mph.

Feel the world evaporate around you as you roll, dive and loop the loop, then see what this aircraft can really do as you take part in a simulated dogfight that'll show you first hand what it feels like to be in a real aerial combat situation.

  • Half day at Fighter Pilot School
  • Includes 1 tactical mission and 5-6 dogfights
  • Fly state of the art military aircraft including the SIAI Marchetti SF260
  • Learn from expert fighter pilots, trained by the military
  • You must weight less than 250 lbs and be no taller than 6 ' 7 "

You'll learn basic Air Combat Maneuvers in a program that lasts a full day. The experience includes a tactical mission with 5-6 dogfights. You'll use real military aircraft including the SIAI Marchetti SF260, under the guidance of licensed fighter pilot instructors. This extraordinary adventure provides the chance to experience the thrill and adrenalin of flying a light attack fighter in air-to-air combat. The only thing that is not real are the bullets. Fully briefed, you will climb into the aircraft alongside your instructor and you will be in control of the aircraft as you engage in air to air dogfights. Every maneuver is recorded during your flight and the tapes are yours to keep.

Flying is weather dependent and there is also a risk of air sickness. If you are prone to motion sickness, this experience may not be for you.
