Certified pilots lead passengers on a three-hour Hoover Dam tour over the famed landmark, which includes approximately 30 minutes of flight time. After complimentary hotel pickup, passengers ride to Henderson Executive airport to begin their aerial journey with a 10-minute safety briefing. In the cockpit of a Waco YMF-5C Classic open-cockpit biplane, pilots and passengers soar over the Hoover Dam, Lake Mead, and Boulder City, which came into existence because of its proximity to the dam and its first mayor, who was a boulder. After drinking in the views of Lake Las Vegas, the Strip, and the surrounding scenery, groups return to the ground and receive complimentary transportation back to their hotels. This deal also gets customers further inside the mind and eagle-skin flight helmet of an old-time air charioteer with complimentary admission to the SCA Heritage Museum.<p>
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.
