25 Minute Fighter Tactics Mission
Experience the raw thrill of the aerobatic manoeuvres used in almost every airshow routine conducted by demonstration pilots around the world: the four point hesitation roll, the barrel roll and the lazy eight or even the impressive vertical roll, if you dare. We adapt the flight as we go so if you can handle the pressure, we'll give you the Gs.
Our 25 Minute Fighter Tactics Mission also includes some tried and proven fighter tactical manoeuvres still used by the RAAF's Top Gun fighter pilots such as the 'Split S' and the 'Derry turn'. The briefing will cover the application of these defensive manoeuvres and the techniques used in their execution. We'll then end up with a high-speed low-level dash to 'Home plate' at Hunter Valley Airfield.
On arrival you'll be greeted by our host and directed to our briefing room. Here your pilot will provide a full military style brief and safety instructions for your Fighter Tactics Mission. We'll then suit you up in your pilot uniform and helmet.
Now you'll strap in to your fighter jet and be guided through the start procedures - feel the awe as the jet engine spools up and the adventure begins. Complete the checklist items and taxi out to the runway to prepare for take off. Then 4000 pounds of jet thrust will launch you into the atmosphere. With speeds of up to 800 km per hour the L-39 is the sleekest and most modern jet fighter conducting adventure flights in Australia.
Once up in the air you will climb to the manoeuvring area up to an altitude of 7000ft. You will commence with "G" warm-up manoeuvres then move on to live the high performance of the L-39 Fighter. You are the co-pilot and your flight is both interactive and customised and you can even change the flight profile while you're airborne.
