Description:

Based in the desert playground of Las Vegas, Nevada, Sky Combat Ace(SCA)...

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!

Eleanor had the normal flight and i chose the top gun flight, which was incredible. Tex and his team really made us feel at home from the pick up at our hotel until... More

Never experienced anything like it. Will knock your socks off!! So much fun but unfortunately they charge an exorbitant amount for the video, the whole thing isn't cheap to begin with but it is worth it just a shame they couldn't throw in the video or a couple photos for a reasonable amount.

These guys are awesome! Great group of guys and girls that work there. Airplanes are in great shape and the experience itself was amazing. My friends and I did the Top Gun experiences all around. Surreal feeling when you realize your hands are controlling the plane. Crazy maneuvers and for those of you who can stomach it, I definitely recommend... More

From the moment we walked into the hangar, the experience with SCA was second to none. The flight briefing and the entry experience was seamless and fun while the pilot, owner and staff gave us a nice and welcoming experience. The flight: the most intense and superior experience in the air possible known to a civilian. Watching the YouTube videos... More

They are very helpful and accommodating from start to finish. My husband had such a great time on his flight. It was short, but packed... More

Did the "top gun" experience, and have nothing but good things to say, besides learning that i get motion sickness lol. Luckily for all involved there was no mess and i still had a blast.
