The flight profile begins with a formation take-off to the training area where you’ll warm-up with handling, weapons usage and basic aerobatic maneuvers. The first five G-pulling air combat engagements follow a show and include a profile utilizing both offensive and defensive tactics against your opponent. Then its “Fight’s On!” for eight head-on engagements, three are scored neutral engagements, against the adversary.

The mission is culminated with flying unlimited aerobatics under your instructor's guidance. An exciting formation high-speed, low-altitude pass down the runway marks your arrival to base. Then, you will debrief with the instructors who will play both videos for all to view the flight first-hand.
