Experience the ultimate battle for the skies as you fly a SIAI Marchetti SF260 for its real military purpose.
Head to Fighter Pilot training school where you'll learn the trade secrets from real fighter pilots and put them into action as you take the controls. Carry out two simulated strike missions and experience at first hand up to 10 maneuvers actually used by the military including formation flight, lead and lag pursuits, vertical and oblique turns and displacement rolls. Once your training is complete, you'll deploy your skills in a real combat mission that's breathtakingly close to the real thing. Finish your day on the ultimate natural high and take home memories to last a lifetime.
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.
