The Flight Process
1. Ground School
Each mission is tailored to your level of experience, ability, and aggressiveness, from armchair to ace. Whether you sign up for Phase I or all four phases, the course is designed to provide you with a complete fighter pilot experience.
3. Taking the Controls
Now, you’re ready to roll back the canopy and climb into the cockpit of the SIAI Marchetti aircraft alongside your instructor pilot. The side-by-side seating is unique to this military aircraft and allows you to have more time at the controls of the aircraft than tandem-style front/back seating. You fly the aircraft up to 90% of the time.
4. Post-flight Debriefing
When you return to home base after your flight, we play back the videos taken from each aircraft simultaneously for a chance to relive your kills and view the dogfights from your opponent’s perspective. Your instructor pilot offers suggestions and relates the flight activities to the ground school theory, giving you even greater insight into the art of aerial combat.
