Attraction details
Owner description: 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!

Let me just say I am a true adrenaline junkie. I have done bungee, skydiving, zero G , all sorts of racing as well. This was LEGIT!!! From the front office to the super cool hangar everything was top notch. Dennis and Kyle are insane pilots. They cater to what you want to do. Of course I wanted the max... More

I took the Top Gun package just this morning and it exceeded my expectations. Doing aerobatic maneuvers in the Extra 330 is a sensational experience, and not scary at all. Towards the end, after the pilot showed some airshow routines, my stomach needed a break. I told him and we took a minute flying smoothly over the desert. But as... More

When I looked at activities of things to do in Las Vegas I couldn't believe how highly rated and reviewed this adventure was. Our group from South Dakota booked the adventure and the reviews were right. This is an amazing adventure. It's impossible to describe the excitement and the best part is telling people about it.

I have waited for a few days to write this review. I was hoping that I would find a way to express the experience but I cannot. It is so overwhelming I don't know where to begin. If you have ever daydreamed about what it would be like to soar and dive, roar along the ground and shoot straight up,... More

This was by far one of the coolest things I've ever gotten to do. Well worth the money! The staff were great, and my pilot "Diesel" was awesome! Can't say enough good things about it, I'll be back to do the Adrenaline Rush package soon!!! Christine from South Dakota
