The engine roars and the landscape evaporates around you. This is no simulator - it's you at the controls of an awesome SIAI Marchetti SF260 as you feel the rush of carrying out actual maneuvers in a lean, mean fighting machine!
Prepare to reach cloud nine as you spend a day to remember with former fighter pilots learning what it's like to master the skies in a plane that can reach 260 mph in the blink of an eye. Carry out up to six tactical maneuvers under expert guidance, then put your skills to the test in a simulated combat scenario that will blow your mind.
The only thing that isn't real are the bullets. If you're looking for the ultimate high flying adventure, this fighter pilot experience is for you!
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.
