Experience the challenge of aerial maneuvers at 500 knots, aircraft take-offs and landings and the excitement of air-to-air combat. Up to ten people can fly at the same time, each in their own authentic F-16 flight simulator! There is also the "Officer's Club", an observation area where guests can view and listen to all of the action on large LCD monitors, where they will see what each pilot is seeing during their flight and also hear the interaction between the pilots and the ATC crew (air traffic control).Flightdeck offers 45 minute air combat flights and 30, 60 & 90 minute Boeing 737 flights. Advanced reservations are required. « less

Mustang this is ghost rider requesting fly by. Had an awesome time here with friends. While we already have our commercial pilots licenses, this was definitely a fun opportunity to show off our fighter "skills". Great place for any avid jet fighter or simulator fans!

If you've ever dreamed of riding in a jet fighter and experiencing the challenge of a mid-air combat (but without the risk), here you go! Complete with a flight suit and pre-mission briefing, the experience was fantastic. From the moment the canopy closes you can feel the adrenaline race through your body, and it only gets more exciting from there.... More

For all the would be "Mavericks" and "Icemen" out there , this is the place to go. All the adrenaline and excitment of arial combat without actually being in any danger. The adventure starts by putting on your flight suit and being briefed on the aircraft controls and basic flying manoeuvres. The instructors keep it light hearted and encourage student... More

I went yesterday. It was fun, I enjoyed myself, I would do it again, but I still have some comments. For one, a nice shout out to our instructor Zulu, was friendly, welcoming, and presented well. Going in, I didn't know if it would be simulated "real" experience or more like a big video game. Their marketing says things like... More

This is a non-nauseating simulation ride. Excellent visuals of the scenery in the state. Very corny warm up that is so hokey it is almost worthwhile just for that
