Are you ready for the adventure of a lifetime? Our Top Gun Experience is like no other, offering the thrill of extreme aerobatics in this warbird fighter trainer combined with the stunning Sydney coastline and harbour as your backdrop.



After your arrival at Bankstown airport, your ACES experience begins with a full briefing on all aspects of the flight, safety procedures, and aircraft details for our Yak 52 military trainer. Once the briefing concludes you’ll strap yourself into the rear seat of this Yak 52 TW.

With our experienced pilots at the helm, your mission starts with a reconnaissance flight over Sydney’s Southern Parklands where your pilot will ease you into the performance of this warbird. Along the way, you'll be able to identify multiple reconnaissance targets and get a unique glimpse of the world below.


Then you’ll fly low level along Sydney's coast line including the famous Bondi Beach and Sydney's harbour heads. But the adventure doesn't stop there. After taking in some breathtaking views, you'll kick into high gear with a variety of simulated combat aerobatics over Sydney's stunning coastline. Our expert pilots will take you through a number of combat moves, giving you a taste of the incredible agility and power of our aircraft. You'll feel your heart race as you experience loops, rolls, and other exhilarating manoeuvres.


Remember, you’ll be in contact with your pilot at all times and able to adjust the level of intensity instantly to suit your comfort levels.


The last section of your flight will see you fly over Sydney’s Hawkesbury River, again low level, before heading back to the hangar at Bankstown.


At the end of your Top Gun adventure flight experience, you'll land back at Bankstown Airport with a new appreciation for the Sydney's beauty and the incredible performance of a 400 horsepower radial engine warbird.


This is our all-in premium experience and the perfect gift idea for any aviation fan or that person in your life who ‘has everything’ and craves something truly different and unique. So why wait? Book your adventure flight today and get ready to take to the skies top gun style!
