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

Have you got what it takes to be the king of the skies?

Watch the runway evaporate in a heartbeat as you take the controls of a mighty Marchetti SF260. Discover the unparalleled sensation of mastering a real fighter plane while engaging in a simulated dogfight that's as close as it gets to the real thing.

It's the ultimate battle for the skies over Texas as you learn air combat strategy from the best of the best. Spend an unforgettable day with former fighter pilots and carry out up to 6 tactical maneuvers with your hands on the controls. Carve through the air in a plane capable of 260 mph during a practice session that will blow your mind. Then, deploy your new skills in a real air combat situation that'll leave you begging for more.

This is no simulator. It's a real deal, once in a lifetime adventure for every budding fighter pilot.
