How to redeem your experience gift:
Before you begin your mission, your instructor will help you with your flight gear – Flight Suit, Mae Vest and Anti-G Pants. Next is the pre-flight briefing to prepare for your mission. During your briefing, you will have the opportunity to choose, with your instructor, from a variety of aircraft and missions ranging from basic flying and the practice of air combat to formation flight and carrier landing. Once your mission has been determined you’ll go over ballistics, avionics and aerodynamics. You’ll climb in and get strapped into an ACES ll ejection seat. Your instructor will give you a quick introduction to the fighter jet controls before you pop on your virtual reality headset. Your instructor will guide you through the basics of flight before you are free to challenge yourself with more complex manoeuvres such as turning, climbing and performing loops and barrel-rolls. Your instructor will be there to assist throughout your experience. Being able to have two pilots flying simultaneously, the virtual reality system is able to reproduce the most dangerous missions that the combat pilots are brought to carry out:
The flight simulators are modular and allow you to ‘fly’ several types of aircraft: Climb into a CF-18 Hornet, F-15C Eagle, Mirage 2000C, A-10 Thunderbolt, a Sukhoi 27 or the famous Mig-29. You can even take up the challenge of vertical flight with a Harrier Jump Jet taking off and landing vertically from a carrier or landing on a Russian aircraft carrier with a Sukhoi SU-33.The HOTAS flight controls (Hands-on Throttle and Stick) make it possible to reproduce most of the features of these fighter aircraft…the only limit is your imagination.The virtual reality software simulates theaters of operations in the Middle East, Russia and North America. Which area of operations will your mission be in?The fight will be on as you try everything to prevent your opponent from getting behind you and locking on! After you've completed your mission, you'll land and proceeding to a debriefing where you will be given your scorecard. The best aces of the squadron will have their picture on the squadron wall and their names added to the Topgun trophy.
