Take to the skies and enter a whole new world of adventure as you spend a day at flight training school with the real Top Gun team. Learn the full spectrum of maneuvers and experience first hand what it's like to deploy a serious military plane for its real military purpose. Discover the basics of formation flight, lead and lag pursuits, oblique and vertical turns and displacement rolls before putting them to the test in a simulated mission situation.
Forget air combat computer games, this is the real thing. Your feet won't touch the ground for weeks - we guarantee it!
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.
