Whether you remember dreaming of being Tom Cruise in Top Gun, or have played enough Call of Duty that you’re dying to try your hand at being a pilot, this experience offers you the chance of a lifetime. Get your hands on the controls of a real fighter jet and go for a thrilling aerobatic ride!

Activity Highlights

  • Experience incredible g-forces, just like in a real dogfight
  • Sit behind our experienced pilot as you perform exciting aerobatics
  • Take the controls and fly the jet yourself
  • Incident-free safety record for over 10 years of flights
  • Safe and thrilling – a dream ride to get your heart pounding!

Fighter jet dogfights are an adrenaline junkie’s dream. You can roll, climb, flip upside-down, dive at scary velocities, and go in directions your body won’t believe at speeds your brain will struggle to comprehend!

Our Aero L-39 Albatross is a real military jet. It’s used to train fighter pilots, for tactical recon missions, and as a light ground support fighter, and it meets all the usual military safety standards. It’s not a supersonic aircraft, but it can still manage to generate g-forces of up to 8G (positive) and 4G (negative) when our experienced pilot gets busy throwing this machine all over the sky!

Hop into the navigator’s seat, just behind the pilot, and experience for yourself the thrills of barrel rolls, Immelmann turns, Cuban eights and other wild aerobatic maneuvers that real pilots use to flummox their opponents and stay alive in combat.

Even better, we’ll let you take the controls and fly the fighter for yourself. No experience is necessary to feel the phenomenal power of a real military jet responding to your every command!
