Phoenix Aerial Combat Mission

Experience Flying as a Fighter Pilot with an Aerobatic Adventure

participants Price for 1 Participant

This 30 minute combat mission lets you be the fighter pilot. Learn the basics of modern air combat maneuvers and engage in actual air-to-air combat. Upon arrival to the squadron, you will suit up in flight gear and receive a loaned leather call sign (you may purchase at the end).  Fully briefed on tactical air combat maneuvers, you and your fighter pilot instructor will strap in!

Beginning with a formation take-off, you willl warm-up with advanced handling, weapons usage and basic aerobatic maneuvers. Then it’s “Check Six!” as you fly 5 g-pulling air combat engagements where you will utilize offensive and defensive tactics against your opponent.

Ending with a three-dimensional smoke chase, each aircraft will alternate “lead and follow” positions across the sky. The mission is debriefed using the multiple-view video and in-flight notes evaluating shots and tactics. You will receive an in-flight video, which is put into a CD in MP4 File Format at the end of your experience. So take to the skies with this memorable flying experience!
