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! « less

Had the time of my life. Never could have imagined how exciting it was. The staff was great and very knowledgeable. I am certainly going to come back and do it all again. Thanks "Tex" and the rest of the crew. You made my week.

If you're an adrenaline junkie, this is for you! My husband & myself both did the 'Adrenaline Rush' package. My husband went up with Tex the first day & loved it so much he went up again the next day with Whip. I went up with Tex the second day. They and the staff at SCA were courteous, professional &...

This place was great and loved every second I was in the air with these ex-fighter pilots. Most of the pilots are retired F-15 or F-16 pilots and really know there stuff and explain the process really well. Make sure you pay attention to the pilot before you take off cause I didn't and wasn't sure what to do in... More

I was fortunate enough to get a free gift certificate from a friend and his loss was my gain. From my first phone contact with SCA staff and all the way through my experience, I was treated like royalty. The facility was clean and orderly, the staff was professional, and the flight was AMAZING! I was witness to some fantastic... More
