See Las Vegas as never before as you reach for the skies in an SIAI Marchetti SF260 for a first hand look at what it takes to be a fighter pilot. No other experience takes you this close to the action as you grasp the controls of a machine capable of 260mph under the expert guidance of former fighter pilots. Experience the thrill of flying a serious machine for its real military purpose as you learn up to six air combat maneuvers before putting them to the test in a G-pulling dog fight that'll leave you on the ultimate natural high.
If you've ever wondered what it's like to be in the cockpit of a real fighter plane. This is your chance to find out. It's the most realistic simulated combat adventure money can buy.
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.

This was one of the most fun experiences I have ever had. I never thought I would be in control of the airplane for most of the trip, and the dogfights were just unbelievable
