Fast cars will seem insignificant after you've taken this baby for a spin. Reach for the skies in a mighty Marchetti SF260 and discover one of the most mind-blowing experiences known to man.
Spend a day with real fighter pilots learning at first hand what it takes to fly a military fighting machine capable of +6 G forces and speeds of 260 mph. Discover the thrill of carrying out up to 10 actual military maneuvers including lead and lag pursuits, vertical and oblique turns, with you at the controls! No video game can prepare you for this white knuckle adventure as you undertake real aerial moves before testing your skills in a simulated mission.
This is an adrenaline fuelled, once in a lifetime adventure that will leave serious thrillseekers begging for more.
You'll learn basic Air Combat Maneuvers in a program that lasts a full day. The experience includes two missions with 10 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.
