• 30 Minute Aerobatic Flight 

  • Aerobatics based on Combat Maneuvers

  • Speeds of up to 420 kmh

  • Medium to high g-forces (you control the intensity)

Experience flight maneuvers like a Russian World War 2 fighter pilot in this simulated combat flight.


This is an experience like no other. If you always wanted to know what it was like to be a World War 2 fighter pilot then this is the ultimate thrill ride for you. We start this aerobatic flight off gently with loops, rolls, and wingovers to build up your resistance and work up our way to advanced maneuvers like a Stall Turn, Immelmann, and Split-S.


Before the flight your highly experienced pilot will give you a detailed ACES Mission Briefing covering all aspects of the flight and safety procedures. You will also receive instructions on how to look out for “enemy aircraft” to assist your pilot in avoiding and engaging.


Once securely strapped in, we’ll taxi for takeoff and after our final post-take-off checks we’ll make our way west with views of the Blue Mountains where we’ll move on to some classic combat maneuvers like aileron rolls and loops and more. Not sure if you can handle all the aerobatic maneuvers? Not a problem: you will be in constant contact with your pilot and can customise the experience to suit your comfort level. 


Then it’s back to Bankstown for a full de-brief and to discuss the flight. There will be ample opportunity to take photos both before and after the flight and an optional flight video will be available to purchase.


This is a great experience and the perfect gift idea for any aviation fan or or that person in your life who ‘has everything’ and craves something truly different and unique.
