Join the ranks of the privileged few as you become a fighter pilot for the day and take part in your very own dogfight. No other experience comes this close to the action as you take to the skies in the mighty Marchetti SF260 and see the world through the eyes of a real fighter pilot. You'll learn the ropes with former fighter pilots from stellar military backgrounds. Under their expert guidance, you'll be shown up how to carry out up to six air combat maneuvers actually be used by the military. Then it's time to put them to the test as you lock on your target and the battle begins. Enjoy a realistic simulated dogfight at the controls of a military machine capable of 260 mph and +6 G-forces. This is the ultimate fighter pilot experience. Are you up the challenge?
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.
