If you’ve seen Top Gun an endless amount of times, you’ve probably always dreamed about flying a fighter jet. Well, with the Sky Combat Ace Stunt Plane Experience you can get into thrill seeker mode and fly a real plane under the supervision of highly-skilled pilots.
There are several categories to choose from, including aerobatics, air combat, combination, and flight training. You’ll go up in the air in a propeller-driven Extra 330LC with a professional pilot and channel your inner-Maverick as you take the controls. Sky Combat Ace allows you complete control of the stick to maneuver your aircraft, and you don’t need a pilot’s license since each plane has dual flight controls. If you choose a package that simulates aerial dogfighting, you’ll use an optical targeting system to go up against another plane piloted by a novice coupled with a professional pilot. If you squeeze the trigger and hit your target, the opponent’s plane will pour smoke to indicate a kill. There are plenty of packages to choose from, such as the Top Gun experience or the insane Operation Red Flag package for king-of-the-hill style aerial dogfighting. Packages start at the $249 spectator level.
