This Fighter Jet introductory flight is the ultimate bucket list experience!

Get ready for the ultimate adrenaline rush as you dart about the sky and experience firsthand the skills required to control a lightning fast Cold War era fighter jet!

Each flight is tailored specifically for you. It can be as mild or as wild as you want! If you feel the need for speed, hang on. If you wish to have a nice, quiet flight, that is certainly fine as well. You will always be in communication with your pilot.

Your L-29 Fighter Jet Flight experience starts with a pre-flight briefing. A season instructor will teach you about pre-flighting the jet, balance and weight, calculating the flight profile, and finally, a briefing on safety systems.

Now the real fun begins! The adrenaline-pumping sound of the jet engine starting, a quick taxi to the runway and then lift off - your flight is underway! Imagine the thrill as your heart skips a beat as you race down the runway and soar into the wild blue yonder. You'll be flying at speeds of up to 520km/hr and altitudes of up to 10,000ft.

During your flight you will be able to perform turns, straight and level flight. You’ll feel the “g”, that is induced during high speed maneuvers. If you are up for it, you can even do some aerobatics. Your flight is tailored to you, and how you feel.

After your flight, you can take as many pictures as you’d like. You’ll have a quick debrief with your pilot about the flight and be awarded your flight certificate.
