Feel the mighty Marchetti SF260 roar through your soul as you carve the air in a plane capable of 260 mph. No, this isn't a simulator. It's the closest thing on Earth to feeling like a real fighter pilot.
Head to flight training school with former fighter pilots as you learn tactical maneuvers from the best of the best. Soar off the runway and carry out up to 10 fighter pilot moves at speed, including lead and lag pursuits, vertical and oblique turns and displacement rolls. When you've mastered the basics, you'll have the chance to showcase your skills on your very own tactical mission.
Turn your world upside down (literally) with this once in a lifetime adventure that'll leave you on the ultimate natural high.
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.
