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

Yes - you do get to control the aerobatic aircraft and pull positive G's while flying over the south Las Vegas desert area. Spins, Loops, Spirals - great stuff - just as advertised.

I really enjoyed this experience. The pilots were great and they really seemed to be having fun as well. I did the top gun session where you can briefly grab the stick and "do" some maneuvers (they have the throttle and help massage you though). I am a huge flight sim nut and I was surprised that the real planes... More

I went in a Saturday afternoon to fly the last slot and it was thrilling, amazing, awesome!!! I do not have words to describe how good it was! The people at SCA is very professional, flight safety is paramount and the aircraft is very well maintained. It is expensive, very expensive, but it is really worthy to fly with SCA.... More

I think this might be the best thing I've ever done. A description really can't do justice to the experience, totally superb. Thanks for the experience guys, if I come back to Vegas, I'll definitely do it again!

My husband booked the Hoover Dam Waco tour for our one year anniversary and we both left the airport saying that the flight and people there absolutely made our trip to Vegas. We could have gone home that minute and felt that our trip was complete and totally worth it. The plane ride was spectacular and we couldn't have asked... More

Tex was my pilot. He was brilliant! I went to 6G's and he tried to do whatever he could to scare the b'jesus out of me. Absolutely brilliant Tex! I have scuba dived, sky dived, and raced in cars etc. but this has to be the BEST excitement I have ever experienced. I will be talking and showing this video... More
