This is the closest it gets to being a real fighter pilot. Watch the runway evaporate in a heartbeat as you take off in a Marchetti SF260. Feel what it's like to undertake a real tactical mission as you carry out actual maneuvers used by the military. You're in control on this amazing adventure as you experience what it's like to fly a serious military aircraft for its real military purpose.
Following an expert briefing, it's time for your first training mission, under the expert guidance of former fighter pilots from stellar military backgrounds. You'll practise moves including high and low yo-yos, lead and lag pursuits, displacement rolls, vertical and oblique turns before putting your skills to the test in your very own tactical mission.
At the end of the day, you'll be buzzing so much your feet won't touch the ground. Leave with a permanent grin and a DVD of your flight so that you can re-live the moment, over and over again.
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.
