Before takeoff, pilots watch a preflight instructional video that demystifies aircraft controls, dogfighting maneuvers, and weapon use. While in the air, participants can reach instructors via a headset for help with navigation, takeoffs, and landings.
Aviation Xtreme's simulators let land-locked folk fly aboard jetfighters and WWI- or WWII-era aircraft in aerial missions or close-range combat. Aspiring aces strap into the cockpit of their simulator and choose from aircraft such as an F-15A Eagle, F-4 Phantom, or P-51 Mustang. After a short instructional video, they take off into the realistic blue yonder on a chosen mission, which can include an anti-ship mission or ground-attack mission. Each simulator is part of a larger computerized network, allowing friends to go head-to-head in a dogfight or team up to carve clouds into self-portraits.

“This was a present for my son. We had a great time, although I got shot down way more!”
