  • After a classroom session on modern air combat maneuvering and safety, you and your fighter pilot instructor will get strapped into the Extra 300L for the flight of your life.

    As you speed down the runaway and launch into the clear blue sky your heart starts racing with anticipation. Before you know it, it's "Check Six!" and you are pulling 5-G air combat maneuvers in an action packed combat mission against an enemy aircraft.

    The flight is culminated with a thrilling three-dimensional smoke chase, each aircraft alternating "lead and follow" positions across the sky.

    An exciting high-speed, low-altitude pass down the runway marks your arrival and "wow's" family and friends watching from our observation deck.

    Choose between 2 air combat mission profiles:

    Intro to Air Combat Mission: You will learn the basics of modern air combat maneuvering with both offensive and defensive engagements. Includes up to 30 minutes of flight time.

    Top Gun Air Combat Mission: You will experience all that's included in the Intro to Air Combat profile plus 3 scored competition engagements as well as unlimited aerobatics. Enjoy up to 1 hour of flight time.

    Live the dream of learning to be a fighter pilot without committing to years of military service!
