Have you ever wondered what it's like to be a fighter pilot? Stop imagining and discover for yourself the challenge of shooting another airplane out of the sky with the Fighter Pilot Mission experience!
No experience necessary, just a need for adrenaline! You'll be at the controls of a 330LC aircraft as you execute air-to-air combat tactics that have been developed through generations of fighter pilots.
Under the supervision of your expert combat fighter pilot instructor, you'll learn the art of basic fighter maneuvers during a 50-minute classroom briefing. Next you'll take to the sky and warm up with some gun-sight tracking exercises. Then it's time to engage your opponent for 5 aerial combat engagements! This is the ultimate competitive challenge!
These aircrafts are equipped with an amazing optical targeting system, so that when a "hit" is made, smoke will billow off your opponent's aircraft.
Take to the skies and fulfill your dreams as you engage in true Sky Combat!
