Fighter Pilot Experience Fly a Air Combat Mission fly a fighter plane pilot for the day

Can you rub shoulders with the top guns?

See the world from a whole new perspective as you carve through the skies in a mighty war machine, capable of speeds you've only imagined.

Experience at first hand the roar of an SIAI Marchetti SF260 as you leave the runway behind in a heartbeat. There's no clever graphics or high speed animation – this is as real as it gets. Squeeze the controls and feel the thrill of mastering a serious piece of kit that can reach 260 mph and pull +6 G forces.

Former fighter pilots will be with you all the way as you carry out up to 10 military maneuvers at speed, including lead and lag pursuits, vertical and oblique turns and displacement rolls. Then it's your turn to lead the way as you hone your skills on your very own tactical mission.

Unleash your inner speed demon on a daring adventure that'll leave you on the ultimate natural high.

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.
