Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children’s runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with today’s Groupon: for $49, you get a simulated flight experience at Sky Combat Ace, located at Henderson Executive Airport (a $174 value). The experience includes the following:

  • A 10-minute aerobatics briefing
  • A 30-minute interactive simulation
  • Admission to SCA Heritage Museum
  • A souvenir drinking glass

Sky Combat Ace’s cadre of 10 professional fighter pilots gives guests a personal introduction to aerobatics during 30-minute flight simulations. Students pair with a trained SCA instructor pilot, who briefs them on air safety, demonstrates potential maneuvers, and distributes guides for spotting rare cloud animals. Flight apprentices then hop into cockpits of Redbird simulators, where their flight coach gives them a tour of plane controls before slipping into a seat beside them. The simulator is designed with intelligent motion design and loaded with advanced software that allows pilots to fly over landmarks from all around the world, such as the Sydney Opera House or Pat Boone’s man-made lake. Following the adventure, participants can sip from their souvenir glasses, browse exhibits at the SCA Heritage Museum, or debate their favorite aviator call sign at billiard tables.

Sky Combat Ace

Sky Combat Ace gives customers the thrill of a lifetime by pairing them with real fighter pilots for adrenaline-filled flight experiences that range from a full-motion flight simulation to an aerial dogfight where they man the controls of a real Extra 330LC or Texan T6 warcraft. All skybound guests don parachutes prior to takeoff, and pilots maintain constant communication with them during the flight—checking in to make sure they're relaxed, comfortable, and aren't aging prematurely due to g-forces. After touching back down, guests can calm their racing hearts with a stroll through the SCA Heritage Museum.
