There are few things as liberating as being able to fly, which is why humans invented airplanes and why penguins constantly try to sabotage them by climbing into their jet engines. Feel the freedom of the skies with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $79 for a flight-simulator dogfighting session for two ($150 value)
- $120 for a flight-simulator dogfighting session for up to four (up to $240 value)
Participants can put themselves in the virtual cockpit of a modern jet or WWII fighter for their session. After a 15-minute briefing with a real pilot, participants will get 60 minutes to battle another fighter plane in the flight simulator. They must be at least 14 years old or 10 years old with an adult in order to participate.
A P-51 Mustang. An F-15. A MiG-29. It sounds as though all of these planes, among many others, would require a massive hangar. They all live inside the flight simulation machines, though, at Gauntlet Warbirds. Those units capture the breathtaking sensations of dogfighting with head-tracking systems and high-definition displays. They’re also connected, so patrons can fly alongside friends and family.
Those battles might occur between modern fighter jets or World War II aircraft, and the technology in the simulators makes flying intuitive and natural feeling. On some evenings, real fighter pilots visit the center and draw upon their extensive experience to provide instruction.
