As close as it gets to being a fighter pilot

Swoop low and lock on your enemy target as you conduct a strike mission in a real fighter plane. This is your chance to spend a mind blowing day at Flight Training school learning the tricks of the trade from the best in the business. Slice the air at the controls of the mighty Marchetti SF260 and discover what it feels like to fly a serious plane for its real military purpose.

You'll be guided through a range of basic maneuvers actually used by the military before putting your skills to the test in an aircraft capable of 260mph and 6+ G Forces. Fly a simulated tactical mission that's as close as it gets to feeling like a military hero.

This is without doubt one of the most amazing experiences you are ever likely to have. You'll take home memories to last a lifetime as well as a commemorative recording of your flight.
