Are you ready for the ultimate battle for the skies?
Head to Fighter Pilot training school where you'll learn trade secrets from real fighter pilots and see what an SIAI Marchetti SF260 can really do when used for its true military purpose. Take the controls of an aircraft that can accelerate to 260 mph in a heartbeat and carry out two simulated missions under the guidance of former fighter pilots. Find out how to perform up to 10 maneuvers actually used by the military including formation flight, lead and lag pursuits, vertical and oblique turns and displacement rolls. Then deploy your skills in a real combat mission that'll test your abilities to the match.
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.
