My wife planned a surprise flying experience with Air Combat USA for acrobatic flying and it was off the charts and an activity to get your adrenaline going. The best part was Michael Blackstone ( Chief Pilot) let me do all the flying including the moves ( spins, loops, cuban 8's, inverted flying) pulling -1G's up to 5G's. Over all... More

I've flown helicopters and airplanes. Out of all aircrafts the Extra 300 blew all of them out of the water. I had so much fun. It really got me excited about flying and eventually pursuing my pilots license.

I had the opportunity to share this incredible adventure with my two sons last week in Fullerton CA. The chance to fly my own plane has been a life long dream and the people that run this company could not have made it any better. Mike Blackstone and his team were absolutely the BEST. Their attention to details, regarding our... More

Mike the Rocket..you're he best, we spent an incredible hour doing crazy aerobatics, loops, spins, hammerheads, inmelman, cuban 8, and flying over the bay... it was amazing and the thing is that you actually fly the plane 95% of the time... Rocket thanks bro!!!

Purchased a package at the end of May. All communication cut off and they stopped taking calls. Months later, sporadic responses about flights being postponed. Refund requests for $1395 packages are not being honored. Forced to initiate a chargeback dispute with my credit card company. Civil lawsuit is next if Air Combat dares to dispute it. Beware and do not... More

I had booked several months in advance and was travelling from overseas to the LA area for a family holiday. Sadly, my flight was cancelled however, as a professional pilot, I fully understand the reasons behind it, as it was based on safety concerns the company had at the time. They took the difficult decision to suspend flights, which no... More
