Whether you wanted to be Tom Cruise when you saw Top Gun, or spend hours playing Battlefield online, try piloting a fighter first-hand with this incredible once-in-a-lifetime experience. Take the controls of a real military jet and go for a thrilling aerobatic ride!

Activity Highlights

  • Sit behind our experienced pilot as you perform exciting aerobatics
  • Experience incredible g-forces, just like in a real dogfight
  • 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!

If you love the idea of flying at incredible speed, climbing quickly to high altitude, then rolling, diving, looping, and doing a load of aerobatics, then this is the perfect experience for you!

Hop in behind our experienced pilot and take the navigator’s seat in an Aero L-39 Albatross. It’s a real military jet, 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. The Albatross isn’t supersonic, but it’s fast enough to generate 8Gs (positive) and 4Gs (negative) when our experienced pilot starts throwing it all over the sky!

With an amazing view out of the cockpit, you’ll experience incredible thrills as our pilot performs barrel rolls, Immelmann turns, Cuban eights and other wild aerobatic maneuvers that real fighter pilots use to outwit their opponents and stay alive in dogfights.

Even better, you’ll take the controls and fly the aircraft yourself. You don’t need any flying experience to feel the phenomenal power of a real military jet responding to your every command!
