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!

This was a gift for my 15 year old son who desires to be a pilot. If he could survive this ultimate thrill ride, then we knew he had the makings of a future pilot. He LOVED it!

My husband and I wanted to experience the thrill and adrenaline rush of the Sky Combat and although we weren't disappointed with the flight, we were however very disappointed with the video packages. As we were going for my husband's 50th birthday, I splurged for the top video package which was $500 per person. In the end, for both our... More

This was one of the most amazing things I've ever done, I highly recommend it for anyone that enjoys flying, or any thrill seekers looking for the best experience of their life. TEX is the man! Can't wait to show all my friends the video. Cesar Chavez

We initially booked our flights for a bachelor that ended up canceling the whole thing. However, my gf and i wanted to make a trip out of this failed bachelor weekend and went thru with everything, including the Sky Combat Ace. Words really cannot describe what you will experience....a must do no matter how you look at it. Our flights... More

My husband and I treated ourselves to a stunt-plane joyride prior to starting new jobs, and we do not regret it one bit! The staff and pilots were very helpful and knowledgeable. We felt like we were in good hands as we wheeled and soared through the air. We even got a video of the experience as a permanent memento... More

Staff were friendly and engaging, the copilot was fantastic. The brief ground school helps prepare for what lay ahead, but nothing can really prepare you for the actual flight experience. Having never flown but handed the "stick" shortly after take-off was daunting, but soon mastered. And the sensations and exhilaration of manuvers while pulling up to six "g's" - under... More

This was an amazing experience. I can't say enough good things about this fantastic trip. I booked the "Afterburner" for my husband on his 40th birthday. My husband, his cousin, and I, all went at the same time. They flew us side by side and we could watch each other take turns through the crazy maneuvers. The pilots were friendly,... More
