Become a fighter pilot for the day and work with your instructor to outsmart, outmaneuver, and outgun your opponents while pulling six G’s and aerial acrobatic maneuvers.
Off we go into the wild blue yonder… Your mission: work with your instructor to outsmart, outmaneuver, and outgun your opponents in heart-pumping, “g-pulling” dogfights. You will be manning the controls of a real, fully aerobatic, high-performance aircraft.
After attending a full briefing covering formation flight, gun sight tracking, and aerial combat maneuvers, you will don your flight suit and board the Marchetti SF260, a current production, Italian-built fighter aircraft.
Once airborne, your instructor pilot will hand the controls over to you as you engage your enemy in actual combat!
Imagine yourself scanning the skies in a real military aircraft in search of an enemy airplane. You spot the bogey at 3 o’clock, break turn hard and the fight’s on. Up, down, and around. Pulling G’s, making quick decisions until you out maneuver your opponent, put the gunsight pipper on them, squeeze the trigger. The enemy erupts in smoke and you roll up and away, victorious!
Basic Air Combat option:
Following your flight briefing, take to the skies and prepare to engage in an air combat experience you’ll never forget.
Shortly after takeoff you’ll take the controls and warm-up by practicing formation flight, combat maneuvers like high and low yo-yo’s and familiarize yourself with the gun sight.
Now it’s time for combat! You’ll engage your “enemy” for 6 aerial dogfights as you put your skills to the test and try to get as many “kills” as possible. You’ll spend half of the dogfights hunting your adversary attempting to get a clear shot and kill, while the other half will be spent eluding enemy fire. May the best pilot win!
Fighter Pilot Lead In option: If you really want to test your skills as a fighter pilot and see if you have what it takes, this is the experience for you!
With the Fighter Pilot Lead In option, your first flight will be a practice session, focusing on maneuvers like formation flight, high & low yo-yo’s, lead and lag pursuits, displacement rolls, and vertical & oblique turns.
This initial warm-up flight will help you adjust to the G-forces, and give you a chance to hone your skills before it’s time to engage in air combat.
During your second flight, it’s time to engage the enemy and put your dogfighting skills to the test! You’ll use the maneuvers you’ve learned in a variety of tactical air combat situations, and will engage in 10 dogfights. This is the ultimate civilian air combat experience!
All experiences include a mini digital video cassette from 3 in-cockpit cameras to keep the memory alive for years to come.
