White-knuckle, adrenaline-fuelled fantasies don't get better than this. Take a serious military warbird for a spin as you see the world through the eyes of a fighter pilot.
Discover the trade secrets from real fighter pilots and put them into action as you take the controls of an SIAI Marchetti SF260. Carry out two simulated strike missions and perform up to 10 maneuvers currently in use by the military. Hone your skills as you master an exciting spectrum of air combat moves including formation flight, lead and lag pursuits, vertical and oblique turns and displacement rolls. Finish your day with a real combat mission that'll test your nerve and ability to the max.
Think you've got what it takes to win the ultimate battle for the skies?
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.
