  • 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".
