Item Description

Your Top Gun Experience includes:
• 1 fighter pilot mission experience for 1 person on the SIAI Marchetti SF260 or the Extra 300L, including briefing on the Rules of Engagement, the physiological effects of G-forces, practice with formation flying, basic maneuvers, 5-6 dogfights, and debriefing afterwards
• A mini DVD that records your entire flying experience from 3 onboard cockpit cameras

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 and guns, guns, guns! The enemy erupts in smoke and you roll up and away, Victorious! Your aircraft is an aerobatic, Italian built fighter with the lines and handling of an aerial Ferrari with an onboard intercept capability for acquiring targets beyond visual range.

Are you up for the challenge? Do you have what it takes to be a Fighter Pilot for a Day?

You, as the guest pilot, will get to fly real military fighters alongside licensed fighter pilots in the cockpit. All aircraft are outfitted with three high-end digital multi-camera systems to capture your fighter pilot experience, as well as a tracking system that verifies an air-to-air “kill”.

You will be briefed beforehand on basic fighter tactics, Rules of Engagement, and the physiological effects of G-forces. Then you’ll climb into the cockpit with an instructor pilot for the thrill of a lifetime! You will practice formation flying, basic maneuvers and engage in 5-6 dogfights. The entire experience is recorded on a mini-DVD from three onboard cockpit cameras. The tapes are used for de-briefing purposes and are yours to keep.
