Become a Top Gun by emerging victorious from this Air Combat Mission! No experience is required for this flight profile, but be prepared to show everyone what you’ve got. This experience includes five air combat engagements, aircraft handling and G exercises, formation Battle Break to full-stop landing, in- flight video and hero photo with training certificate.
Get ready for the most amazing air combat experience anywhere! At booking, you will receive an air combat tactics manual to review prior to your adventure. Upon arrival at the squadron, you will be greeted by friendly staff, select a leather call-sign by which you will be known for the day, and get suited up in your flight gear. Fully briefed on tactical air combat maneuvers, you and your fighter pilot instructor will step to the aircraft to get strapped in for your mission. The flight profile begins with a formation take-off to the training area where you’ll warm-up with advanced handling, weapons usage and basic aerobatic maneuvers. Then it’s combat time as you fly 5 g-pulling air combat engagements in a profile utilizing offensive and defensive tactics against your opponent. The flight culminates with a thrilling three-dimensional smoke chase, each aircraft alternating lead and follow positions across the sky. An exciting formation high-speed low-altitude pass down the runway marks your arrival to base and impresses family and friends watching from the observation deck. The mission is debriefed by recreating your tactical flight using the multiple-view video and in-flight notes evaluating shots and tactics.
