Have you got what it takes?

See Portland as never before as you take a spin in the Ferrari of the skies, the SIAI Marchetti SF260. Experience first hand the thrill of flying a serious machine for its real military purpose as you learn expert maneuvers from the professionals. Find out what its like to be a trainee fighter pilot before deploying your winning skills in one of the most realistic simulated aerial combat situations money can buy. If you think you've got what it takes to control a plane capable of 260mph and +6 G-forces, this is not a simulator, it's your dream come true!

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.
