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!

I will definitely go back and have afterburner next year. Video package might look a bit expensive, but I would really encourage everyone go for it. It is worth to every penny.

Awesome experience. If you enjoy flying this is a great mix of aerobatics and low level flying. Addition of canyon trip well worth the extra cost. Spectator flight was in a Cadillac Cessna...Great experience still a bit of a thrill ride. Couldn't talk Tex into taking it uoside down :). Video was well done.

I received this flight as a Christmas gift from my wife. As an Army veteran who has had a host of exciting experiences, this is towards the top of my list. The high speed maneuvers were so much fun and the pilot (Colin) was super kind and made it fun. Sky Combat Ace makes the waiting process fun as well.... More

One of the best experiences of my life! I am a pilot myself but in Sky Combat Ace I truly got to know the real fun of flying! I would definitely do that again.

Had a great time. Tex made the ride fun even though I was not feeling my best ( head cold). This was the highlight to my Vegas trip.

Do you want an adrenaline rush? Do you want to live like you were dying (but you don't die)? I've done skydiving, powered parachuting, parachuting, rock climbing, hang gliding, but THIS IS THE FUNNEST THING I'VE EVER DONE! The professional pilots were funny, competent, and patient with my very limited flying skills. I would do this again in a heartbeat.

Best adrenaline rush you will ever have! Very professional & the experience is top notch. I am a pilot & I must say, they are VERY WELL TRAINED & EXPERIENCED!! Only reason I didn't give 5 stars is because of the add-on pricing for all the different stunts, canyon tour, and the video of the flight. Thought it was included... More
