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!

Wonderful Experience! I can't believe I actually got to do this! Incredible fun. No roller coaster or amusement ride can top this experience. I was nervous going into it but left wanting more. Already have plans to do another mission very soon. The crew are very experienced fighter pilots and want to make sure everyone has a great time. What... More

Great experience since the beginning. I took the Top Gun experience which I highly recommend if you want to do some acrobatics by yourself. Pilot always take care of you and keep asking how you feel. The briefing before the flight is really useful. All of them were always nice and kind. I only suggest that it would be nice... More

Did this aerobatics experience with my teenage daughter today. It is amazing in terms of its uniqueness. It is thrilling in that you are doing loops, barrel rolls etc. in a phenomenal aerobatics plane. However, know that it is likely to be a little nauseous (more than that for some, they have an ample supply of sick bags!). Extreme roller... More

Oh WOW..this had to be the most awesome, exhilarating experiences in my 16yr old sons life as a birthday gift. From reservation, pick up in a big hummer, the briefing, the charismatic talented pilot to actually flying.. this was a 'push your nerves and mind' to the absolute max experience. The entire team make the whole experience the best it... More

What else to say than "HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!" - very professional team, taking time and loving what they do. Go for any "you fly" option and for those who have never done such kind of stuff consider a (pricy) video package at the end. You will look more than once for the rest of your life.

Experience of a lifetime, it's the only way to fly!. The staff was super friendly and professional. I flew in my younger years and did some aerobatic flying, but nothing came close to doing it in the Extra 300 and able to experience the loncevak and tail spin maneuvers as well as the indescribable exhilarating low level ground attack mission...

Wholly CRAP this is a total blast! You have no idea what's in store for you, from the pick up in the Hummer to the take off and that's all before you've even got of the ground. You won't believe how beautiful and freeing this was. My two son's (13 and 14) also did the Top Gun Experience and thought... More
