  • 30 minute F-18 Super Hornet simulator flight
  • Realistic air combat
  • Air to ground bombing exercises

This TOP GUN fighter pilot simulator experience is as close as you'll get to flying the real F/A-18 Hornet. Flying at the speed of sound, seeing the ground rush on a bombing run, to shooting for the stars in an Air to Air combat mission. At the Air Combat Centre you'll "feel the need for speed".

What's Included?

  • 30mins of simulated combat flying
  • Pre-flight briefing and guidance during session

Flying a fast jet is one of the most exhilarating experiences you could ever imagine. However it is out of reach for the general public, with only the elite Air Force pilots being able to have this thrill. Until now!

This 30 minute experience will allow you to fully experience the aircraft and the capabilities it really has offer. Strap in and become the Top Gun.
