$29 for a Mission in a Fighter-Jet Simulator ($59 Value)

After Fox-1 combatants slip into flight suits, they attend a 20-minute classroom lesson to learn basic controls, strategies, and terminology such as HOTAS—Hands on Throttle and Stick—and settle into authentic military cockpit replicas for a radio check. There, they can test their midair maneuvers until they receive the call for aerial combat. While diving, swerving, and trying to shake their fellow fliers in a virtual dogfight, pilots listen to orders from air traffic control through their headsets. The 45-minute mission ends with participants attempting two airport landings before reporting to the flight instructor for a debriefing. Click here for FAQs.

Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center

"Shake it!" your headset blares as you push on the jet's throttle. Your nose tips, the ground becomes a wall, and you're diving in a last-ditch effort to lose the fighter behind you. Its shots go wide and it swoops overhead, leaving you to level out just as the radio tower ends the dogfight: "Knock it off, knock it off." With your wheels back on the ground, you step out of the simulator's cockpit and catch your friend’s eye: Missed me.

At Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center, aerial battles between friends take place on the ground. The screens of nine authentic military fighter-jet simulators broadcast the same views a pilot might see while soaring at 600 knots. Though the simulators remain on the ground, all the controls, radio orders, and UFO weigh stations mirror those encountered on an actual flight. People may come in with a friend or with a party, where guests and friends target one another during virtual missions, from the introductory Fox-1 experience to the three-hour Viper-1 course, which covers advanced topics such as missile avoidance. After team-building events, participants can even receive personalized dog tags as souvenirs.

Flightdeck Flight Simulation Center also has an exact replica of a Boeing 737-700 cockpit. Inside, a 180-degree wraparound screen transports pilots to airport runways from around the world. Commercial-flight drills present common challenges such as piloting through turbulence and wiping spilled coffee off the controls, testing visitors between their takeoff and landing.
