Jump aboard a modern L39 Albatros Jet Fighter for a real Top Gun experience. This close air support mission will have you flying low at top speeds over the Burragarang Valley. Throughout the flight you will complete a series of manoeuvres to ensure you get to see what this aircraft is capable of.
Your experience begins with meeting the experienced military and commercial pilot, before being run through a pre-flight briefing and completing the necessary manifest papers. Next, you will move to your aircraft for an inspection and pre-flight photographs. When you are ready and you have put on your flight suit, a trained member of staff will help you aboard the aircraft and assist with seatbelts and flying equipment including your intercom-equipped flying helmet (this makes for another excellent photo opportunity!) During the flight, you will be sitting in the back seat of the aircraft behind the pilot. Within seconds, you'll feel the enormous 4000lbs of thrust spooling up as you take the ride of a lifetime.
This mission will have you on the edge of your seat as you perform a series of high 'G' combat manoeuvres at speeds of up to 910km/h before rolling in on your target to defend the skies of Victoria! You will complete an intense session of aerobatics, including manoeuvres such as the loop, vertical rolls, cuban eight, barrel rolls, aileron rolls, derry turns and four point rolls. After you have completed the aerobatics, you will be diving for the hard deck at speeds of up to 910km/h to perform a low level simulated bombing run through the Burragarang Valley. This flight is tailored for you so it can be as mild or as wild as you want! You will be in constant communication with your pilot at all times, who is one of Australia's top fighter pilots. You will have several photo opportunities so don’t forget your camera!
You will be one on one with your fighter pilot.
In the event of rain or inclement weather your experience will still go ahead unless contacted by the experience provider.

That’s 10% of the Australian population! When we started ‘doing’ experiences in 2001, Facebook didn’t exist; the iPod had just been invented; John Howard was Prime Minister; and Destiny's Child were popular (yikes!). We’ve been at this business of experiences for quite a while, so put your trust in us to show you a good time.
