You could live the combat fighter pilot dream!

Slice the air at the controls of a lean, mean fighting machine and find what an SIAI Marchetti SF260 can really do when used for its military purpose.

No simulator will get you this close to the action as you spend a day with former fighter pilots carrying out up to 10 military training maneuvers. Perform the full spectrum of moves including lead and lag pursuits, vertical and oblique turns and displacement rolls before putting your training into action. You'll be in command of your own tactical mission designed to test your nerve and ability to the max.

Can you defeat the enemy and achieve your mission objective? Fantasy becomes reality on an air combat adventure that's as close as it gets to the real deal.

  • Includes 2 missions and 10 dogfights
  • Fly state of the art military aircraft including the SIAI Marchetti SF260
  • Learn from expert fighter pilots, trained by the military

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.
