Go into battle in a Yak-52 Russian Air Force Aerobatic Warbird, flying high above the Hunter Valley. During this flight, you will experience a low-level bombing over a dam, incredible and breathtaking aerobatic manoeuvres high in the sky, and an air combat dogfight against another aircraft!
This thrilling flight sees you take on an adversary in a mid-air dogfight, flying high above the beautiful landscapes of the Hunter Valley, in a Yak-52 Russian Air Force Aerobatic Warbird. Your experienced pilot will give you a full pre-flight briefing, including the formation, the mission, and full safety instructions, before you jump on board for an experience that will leave you feeling on top of the world!
On board, your take off will be either formation or stream take-off (wind dependent), from Cessnock Airport. Take in the scenic views of the surrounding Hunter Valley, as you and the second Warbird plane begin the formation positions, as you fly down towards the low flying area for the combat formation over the Brokenback Range, before making a mock bombing attack on a dam. Climb back up to altitude, where you will experience the adrenalin of a one-versus-one dogfight against another Warbird carrying your adversary!
You also get to experience some exciting aerobatics, beginning with the basics, including loops, barrel rolls, stall turns, and if you want to try some more advanced manoeuvres, you can experience 4-point hesitation rolls, cuban 8, porteous loop, slow rolls and vertical rolls.
On your return to base enjoy more air combat as you battle it out in the skies chasing your opponent in the other aircraft. You will manoeuvre on the tail of the other plane whilst going through a series of aerobatic displays of twists and turns as they do the same to you.
