Fly an Aerobatic Plane Alongside a Professional Sky Combat Ace Fighter Pilot + Special Museum Access
Why ride along when you can fly your own airshow routine? Get ready to enter the cockpit and take control of the world's most advanced certified aerobatic airplane, the Extra 330LC.
First, there will be a safety briefing to educate you. Then, head up into the air alongside your highly-trained instructor pilot, who will show you how to do a maneuver. Now it's your turn to take control. And don't worry, the instructor has an identical set of controls and is there to back you up.
You will be amazed at what you can do in these unbelievable airplanes after just brief training. Learn for yourself what it is like to fly a world class aerobatic aircraft as you pull back on the stick to execute a perfect loop. Watch the horizon spin at up to 420 degrees per second as you try out your first aileron roll. Once you have the basics down, learn how to fly a Hammerhead or fly backwards in a hair-raising tail slide. This once-in-a-lifetime flight experience is guaranteed to leave you amazed.
