High octane thrills combine with scenic spills as you take a mighty Marchetti SF260 for a spin and carry out your very own strike mission.
You'll spend a day with former fighter pilots finding what it's like to control a plane that can accelerate to 260 mph in a heartbeat as you learn up to 10 air combat maneuvers. Experience the rush of performing actual moves used by the military including lead and lag pursuits, vertical and oblique turns, with you at the controls! When your basic training is complete, it's time to showcase your skills as you take part in a simulated mission designed to test your nerve and ability to the max.
This is the closest it gets to being a real fighter pilot. Have you got what it takes?
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.
