Based in the desert playground of Las Vegas, Nevada, Sky Combat...

Based in the desert playground of Las Vegas, Nevada, Sky Combat Ace(SCA) provides a different level of adrenaline. At SCA, you’re not just a passenger on a joy ride, You are a steely-eyed fighter pilot at the controls of your very own “fighter jet”, pulling Gs and squeezing the trigger. Of course, we teach you everything you need to know about Basic Fighter Maneuvers (BFM) before you fly, so you have all the knowledge needed to successfully own the skies. We have a cadre of highly experienced pilot flight instructors with civilian and military backgrounds that have extensive experience in training aerobatics, basic fighter maneuvers (BFM), and formation training. Our civilian trained aerobatic instructors have over 20,000 hours of instruction given and our combat veterans that have flown everything from the F-15 “Eagle” to the F-16 “Viper” to the A-10 “Warthog.” A typical mission profile includes in-processing at the Squadron where customers are fitted with their own flight suit, followed by a briefing on basic fighter maneuvers. After that, we strap you in our brand new state-of-the-art, +10g/-10g, fully aerobatic Extra 330LC and our wingmen are thrust into the ultimate aerobatic thrill ride or dog fight. With a qualified Certified Flight Instructor in back, wingmen are taught the art of aerobatics and/or aerial combat. Complete with high-g maneuvering, all the aerobatics you can handle, military style training maneuvers, and actual head to head dogfighting. The whole experience is caught on video by one of our 4 mounted cameras, perfect for immortalizing our wingman’s first “kill” in a DVD. SCA utilizes all of the latest technology to give the wingman the most realistic simulation possible, including a gun reticle, an electronic targeting system that triggers “smoke on”, and complete visual coverage from 4 different angles. After several engagements, the 2-ship returns to base with the Las Vegas Strip as an unforgettable backdrop. Once our wingmen return from their adventure, they get to truly appreciate our meticulously rennovated hangar that celebrates the history of combat aviation with colorful murals, scale models and of course, decorated with our fleet of high performance aircraft. Once settled in, flight leads and wingmen swap stories, play pool, shoot darts and share the special camaraderie that only exists between pilots after a successful mission. …Fight’s On!

What an experience

Highly recommended. The pilots are very cool. The ride is awesome. What and experience. I took the $200 package. Their video and pics packages are a bit expensive, but worth it.

Great service! Very professional in all aspects. As a pilot myself the experience allowed me to do things that I wouldn't typically do. Highly recommend to anyone upon their next visit to Vegas

From first meeting, until dropoff after the ride, these folks take care of you! Top-notch people, and the "product" is top-of-the-line out-of-this-world! Literally! I've always wanted to fly, but never got to it, until now! And I'm glad it was with the Sky Combat Ace team. Smokey is a true ace, and made it so simple for me. I had... More

A bit expensive (especially their photo & video package) but definitely worth the money spent. If you are looking for a different experience which is thrilling, then this is it. Its a scary ride but the pilot's are very professional and go out of their way to make you feel less nervous.

Kyle is unbelievable, he took me on the Top Gun and it was nothing you can experience nowhere! He is an Ace pilot and did some great acrobatics. We did negative 3G's and I got my 8G's, almost G-locked! I would recommend this for everyone to try. Everyone is very friendly there! Don't have any doubts, just do it!! You... More

Awesome experience with the fantastic Sky Combat Ace team (especially Smokey). It was scarey but amazing at the same time, and I felt 100% safe at all times. The video has been great to watch! Thanks guys :) I will be recommending you to all of my friends and family.

This was great experience! The pilots and staff were very professional, and did a great job of making nervous participants more at ease. The flight was awesome, and loved every minute of it. I did the Top Gun aerobatics package, and since I'm a pilot, I got to do the maneuvers and logged some aerobatic time in the log book,... More

Amazing experience - the loops, rolls, upside down and near vertical take offs---thrilling, exciting, and yes a little scary too!!! Would do it all over again without thinking twice...Just do it, you will not regret it!

Hands down the most exhilarating experience of my entire life. I mistakenly thought that the flight package would be akin to skydiving, bungee jumping, or some of the more intense amusement rides and roller coasters I've been on in the past. None of those things even hold a candle to the ride in the Extra 330LC. The handling and maneuvering... More

Purchased the Operation Recon package and was extremely nervous to fly but the instructors, Ben and Kyle, made us feel totally comfortable and gave us an experience we will never forget. We had a blast and would highly recommend Sky Combat Ace to everyone!
