We are the original civilian dog fighting school. Established in 1988, we have over 20 years of experience and over 50,000 guest pilots flown, Air Combat USA is the largest, most recognized air combat school in the world. We’ve been featured on hundreds of television shows including The Apprentice and Good Morning America! As the industry leader, we work hand-in-hand with the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) and other governing agencies to define the parameters and establish safety guidelines used to regulate the air combat industry.
- Our Mission
The mission at Air Combat USA is to provide an extraordinary fighter pilot experience! We set the standard for program design and execution, offering a fighter pilot experience second to none! Captain Mike Blackstone, founder of Air Combat USA, developed and patented the tracking system that verifies an air-to-air “kill” and equipped the aircraft with on-board cameras to ensure that the entire experience is recorded on digital videocassette for playback after the engagements.
The result — “everything is real… except the bullets!”
