Take to the skies for the ultimate airborne battle and become a fighter pilot for the day.
No experience is necessary, just a sense of adventure as you master the controls of a Marchetti SF260 and engage in an air combat scenario that's as close as it gets to the real deal. Feel your adrenaline rise as you pull +6 G forces in a plane capable of 260 mph and discover up to 6 real combat maneuvers under the guidance of former fighter pilots. Learn the tricks of the trade from the experts then put them into practice in a simulated dogfight that'll literally take your breath away. Slide, roll and loop as you engage the enemy and fire!
If you've ever dreamed of seeing the world through the eyes of a real fighter pilot, this experience is for you. Take home a commemorative DVD and an ear-to-ear grin!
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.
Fighter Pilot experiences are available on pre-scheduled dates throughout the year. To secure your chosen dates it is recommended that you book well in advance.
