Reach for the skies in an SIAI Marchetti SF260 and experience first hand the thrill of flying a serious military machine for its real military purpose. Carry out two simulated strike missions under the guidance of former Air Force fighter pilots as you experience first hand the full spectrum of maneuvers including formation flight, lead and lag pursuits, vertical and oblique turns and displacement rolls. When your mission training is complete, you'll put your skills to the test in a combat mission that's as close as it gets to the real thing. On completion of your day, you'll take home memories to last a lifetime and a flight video commemorating your experience.
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.
