  • If you've always dreamed of taking the controls of a high-performance aircraft and engaging in thrilling aerobatic maneuvers combined with head-to-head air combat, this is the ultimate experience for you.

    Your thrilling day will begin with a 50-minute classroom briefing under the supervision of your expert combat fighter pilot instructor where you'll learn the art of basic fighter maneuvers.

    Next, it's time for you and your instructor to step aboard an Extra 330LC aircraft and prepare for takeoff.

    Your first phase begins with a warm up consisting of gun-sight tracking exercises. Then it's time for your 25-minute sky combat experience where you'll execute air-to-air combat tactics followed by the ultimate dog fight experience where you'll have the opportunity to challenge your opponent to 5 exciting aerial combat engagements!

    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.

    Just when you think you can't take any more fun, you'll start your 15-minute aerobatic flight and experience loops, rolls, stalls or spins pulling up to 8 Gs! As you progress through some of the more basic maneuvers, you'll begin to move on to some advanced airshow acrobatics including hammerheads and tumbling!

    Your experience will be capped off with a dynamic low level flight, culminating in an element surface attack mission against a ground target.

    It is the perfect package for those who want the ultimate adrenaline rush!
