This experience gives you an introduction to fighter pilot training using the actual skills taught to current military fighter pilots. After being fitted with a full flight suit and completing the air combat briefings you'll climb into the fighter aircraft alongside your instructor. With your hands on the controls you will engage in a minimum of six combat engagements. Your flight will be recorded on video-tape and reviewed in a flight debriefing and we'll even give you a copy to take home at the end of your amazing day.

The instructors, both military and civilian, have enviable credentials. Most are former military fighter pilots from the Air Force, Navy and Marine Corps, and several are graduates of Red Flag and the Navy Fighter Weapons School. This fighter pilot experience features Marchetti SF260 planes as these are the planes used by the military in training their fighter pilots and so it will give you the best experience. They are capable of 260mph, +6 G-forces and are highly maneuverable giving you the most realistic air combat and fighter pilot experience available.

Restrictions: Pilots must weigh less than 250 pounds and stand no taller than 6' 7". Valid one year from date of issue and subject to availability.

Things to know: There are just two participants in each class. Since you will be suited up in a flight suit for this activity, you may wear whatever is comfortable for the air temperature. We suggest rubber-soled shoes (i.e. tennis shoes work well). Get a good night's sleep and avoid an overabundance of alcohol the night before your flight. Guests may sit in on the briefing and watch as you take off and land. Missions are conducted approximately 25 miles from the airfield so guests will be unable to view the actual flight. The instructor will fly the plane during take-off and landing.
