Fighter Pilot Experience Fly a Air Combat Mission pilot experience pilot for the day

Experience the thrill of air to air combat

Unleash your inner thrillseeker as you reach for the skies and see the world through the eyes of a real fighter pilot. This is no flight simulator. It's the real deal and the most authentic simulated air combat experience available in America today.

Learn how to carry out real tactics used by the military as you undertake up to six actual fighter pilot maneuvers with your hands on the controls. Feel the G force as you slice through the air in a mighty Marchetti SF260 capable of traveling at 260 mph. Former fighter pilots will guide you every step of the way as you learn an array of combat moves from the best of the best. Finish your adventure with a simulated dogfight that's the closest it gets to feeling like a real wartime hero.

If you've ever wondered what it feels like to fly a serious military machine for its true military purpose, this experience is for you!

  • Half day at Fighter Pilot School that can be redeemed at locations nationwide
  • 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.
