What You'll Get
Flying is the only way to get close enough to a cloud to milk it or to visit your secret sky family. Break free from earthly bonds with this Groupon.
Choose Between Two Options
- $399 for a hands-on fighter-pilot experience with 40 minutes of practice in-air combat in the plane (an $849 value)
- $599 for a hands-on fighter-pilot experience with 60 minutes of practice in-air combat in the plane (a $1,299 value)
In addition to being in control of the aircraft during the flight, each experience includes ground-school training, a hero photo, pre- and post-flight briefings done according to standard military protocol, lunch in the ready room, and a hero video recorded from within the cockpit.
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.
