If you love speeds that would make your mom faint and heights that leave most people weak at the knees, you'll be in seventh heaven with this mind blowing day at Fighter Pilot training school.
Picture the moment as you squeeze the controls of an SIAI Marchetti SF260 and smash towards the horizon in a military mean machine that can reach 260 mph and pull +6 G forces in the blink of an eye.
Turn your world upside down (literally) as you slice the air and learn up to six real military maneuvers under the expert guidance of former fighter pilots. Then deploy your skills in a simulated dogfight that'll push your adrenalin levels off the richter scale.
This is not a video game, it's the closest experience in America today to being a real fighter pilot.
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.
