What You'll Get
Pilots are the cowboys of the air, roaming the wide-open skies and herding children’s runaway balloons. Giddy up, up, and away with this Groupon.
$199 for an Aerobatic Flight Package (Up to $509 Value)
- Aerobatic flight experience with 25-minute afterburner flight in an Extra 330 or 20-minute flight in a T-6 Texan (a $499 value)
- Sky Combat Ace souvenir (up to a $10 value)
- Complimentary admission to SCA Heritage Museum<p>
After a 10- to 15-minute instructional briefing that imparts tips for staying calm under up to 8 Gs, strap into the passenger seat of a T-6 Texan Warbird—used to train Allied forces during World War II—or a modern Extra 330 air-show plane beside a professional fighter pilot. Then, the nimble, single-engine air beast will ascend for 20 or 25 minutes of aerobatic loops, rolls, stalls, and spins. Afterward, get further inside the mind and eagle-skin flight helmet of an old-time air charioteer with complimentary admission to the SCA Heritage Museum. Ground pilots provide round-trip transportation between their Henderson home base and most Las Vegas hotels.
Sky Combat Ace charges a $15 fuel fee upon arrival, not included in the value of this Groupon.

About 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.
