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 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

I can asure to whoever likes to live an outstanding experience, this is the one. The organization, concerns with security and the whole activity as itself, was the #1 among many I´ve done in my 53 years old. It´s worth every single cent!!!

My son is an aspiring pilot. Sky Combat Ace offers an upset recovery course to ensure that pilots possess proficiency in complex flight situations i.e. spins, turbulence, inversion, etc. He had an incredible flight with Dennis who was a very enthusiastic instructor. After 30 minutes of upset recovery, they did some aerobatic maneuvers. While it might be an expensive hour... More

The Top Gun flight with Kyle at Sky Combat Ace was the most exciting and memorable 30 minutes of my life! You absolutely must do it if you are in Vegas - and ask for Kyle! He was so much fun - encouraged me to do maneuvers myself when I was nervous, but also made sure I was ok throughout.... More
