Fighter Combat Inc

The fighter plane’s 300-horsepower engine lets out a roar, lifting the plane from the runway. Guiding the plane into the sky, the pilot pursues an enemy aircraft, following its maneuvers and attempting to lock on while the g-force exerted at a 600-mile-per-hour closure rate pushes each pilot back into their seat.

At Fighter Combat Inc, experienced pilots— most trained in military air combat—let guests feel what it’s like to fly a plane and engage in aerial warfare. After supplying students with authentic flight suits, instructors teach tactical basics through a blend of classroom training, safety briefings, and lectures. An instructor then leads student pilots through one-on-one, in-air simulated combat that resembles sequences from Top Gun and The Adventures of Milo and Otis, coaching them to out-maneuver their opponent. Every facet of the experience upholds military protocol, and a camera mounted in the cockpit takes photos and records videos of clients operating the controls.

American Home Defense

The male and female firearm experts of American Home Defense shape their shooting and self-defense classes around legal regulations with an emphasis on personal safety. In private shooting lessons, students learn to handle three of the most common handguns and home-defense classes equip participants with the know-how to protect their families from intruders or a neighbor's moat monster.

Class training was instructive and firing the different types of weapons made it fun.
Mark C. · January 3, 2013
It was a very cute and exciting 3 days. They got to fly in a two and also five seater plane from the Santa Monica airport to the Van Nuys airport to use a real pilot's plane simulator. They learned about the small plane engine and got to visit the control tower.
