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!

This really is a once in a lifetime experience. We got the Adrenaline Rush package w extended mountain tour and the video. The only problem you will ever have is trying to find something more exciting. All other activities are ruined. We are going to have to come back for another round. Everyone at SCA is super nice. Top notch... More

Ten stars. A experience that should not be missed. Sky Combat Ace was top notch from the moment we were picked up . Every single employee from the driver, the office staff, and the pilots were 1st class, friendly. and professional. We chose the Top Gun flight and wow what a Incredible thrill I will never forget

The pilots were right across there business from checking you in through to reviewing your video post flight. What a buzz. Was apprehensive at first but once you are in the air and the first manoeuvre complete you are ready for more.

This was the most exciting thing I have done in a while! And to press the point, I am an Air Force and private pilot and have several hours flying aerobatics, but nothing like what SCA offers in their Extra330s. I did the Top Gun package where it is set up as a Demo-Do flight, where they demo a maneuver... More

This is the perfect experince for those who like adrenaline, combined with airplanes, specially if they think roller coasters are not enough, and want to experince some more. You can customize the adrenaline level by asking the pilot no to do the most extreme manuvers if you feel you are not ready yet. Price is very low for what you... More

I loved the whole SCA experience! From the pickup until the drop-of in the hotel: everything was organized perfectly. You would expect that considering the price for the adventure, but expectations are not always met. With SCA they are! The experience itself is something I could not compare to anything I have ever done! The flight in a stunt airplane... More

This is the second time I have experiences total excitement with this team at Sky Combat Ace. (and I will be back again). If you enjoy extreme excitement, you have to do this some time in your life. Enjoy the buzz when you come down to earth after and tell all your friends of your experience for weeks after.
