Feel the world as you know it evaporate in a heart beat as you roar off the runway in a real fighter plane. Smash through the sky at the controls of a lean, mean fighting machine and discover the white knuckled thrill of flying a mighty Marchetti SF260 for its real military purpose.
This is no simulator – it's the ultimate thrillseeker's experience and as close as it gets to being a real fighter pilot. You'll spend a day with the best of the best learning up to 10 military training maneuvers including lead and lag pursuits, vertical and oblique turns and displacement rolls. Then put your training into action as you are sent on tactical training mission that will test your nerve and ability to the max. Do you have what it takes to succeed?
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.
Fighter Pilot experiences are available on pre-scheduled dates throughout the year. To secure your chosen dates it is recommended that you book well in advance.
