It’s safe to say that just about everyone has seen the classic 1986 film “Top Gun” and, accordingly, has imagined buzzing towers and zipping over the desert as Maverick’s wingman. Thanks to Sky Combat Ace, that fantasy becomes a reality during aerobatic flights above Las Vegas. Guests are paired with fighter pilots and taught the basics of fighter maneuvering before being allowed to take the controls and execute loops, rolls, spins, and more.
Five types of aviation experiences provide something for everyone and include aerobatic flights, aerial dogfighting, sightseeing and spectator packages, and multi-day adventures that incorporate numerous flights. Flight packages include photos before takeoff and video during the flights. Groups can reserve the Sky Combat Ace Hangar for events pre- or post-flight to enjoy flat-screen TVs, foosball, darts, a pool table, and the Redbird Full Motion Simulator.
