Your top gun dream come true

Take to the skies for the ultimate Fighter Pilot Training experience and see the world through the eyes of a professional fighter pilot. Discover the awesome power of the mighty Marchetti SF260 as you take the controls and slice through the air. Learn the expert maneuvers needed to carry out your very own military dogfight then put them to the test in a simulated aerial combat situation that's as close as it gets to the real thing. Find out what it's like to master one of the true thoroughbreds of the skies capable of 260mph and +6 G-forces.

This is without doubt one of the most exciting adventures available today. A dream come true for every budding Top Gun pilot. This is NOT a sim, this is the real deal, YOU control all the action, YOU call the shots.

  • Includes 1 tactical mission and 5-6 dogfights
  • Fly state of the art military aircraft including the SIAI Marchetti SF260

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.
