About Sky Combat Ace
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!

Had such a great time with this crew & we’ll always remember this experience. We did the Top Gun experience and didn’t regret it. We had the opportunity to take control of the plane and perform maneuvers that we’d never be able to do anywhere else. Super stoked that we ran into this opportunity.

Had a GREAT time! The pilot made me feel very confidante in his abilities and I was never afraid. The tricks were really fun and the whole experience was extremely exciting. I highly recommend doing this. However, if you're prone to motion sickness be sure to take your dramamine. I was very quest after 5 maneuvers. Couldn't do the last maneuver because my stomach had all the fun it was going to take from that airplane! But they had ginger ale ready to grab and that helped.

My 16 year old son loved loved the experience. Only bad part of the deal was, I paid almost $400 for the video of the flight. I was told I would have the video emailed within two days. No video has been emailed yet. I have emailed them for a response. Nothing yet!!!

He is watching to video non stop and already talking about returning. Glad we live only an hour away in the valley(AZ)!! See y’all again!!!
