Description:

Based in the desert playground of Las Vegas, Nevada, Sky Combat Ace(SCA)...

Based in the desert playground of Las Vegas, Nevada, Sky Combat Ace(SCA) provides a different level of adrenaline. At SCA, you’re not just a passenger on a joy ride, You are a steely-eyed fighter pilot at the controls of your very own “fighter jet”, pulling Gs and squeezing the trigger. Of course, we teach you everything you need to know about Basic Fighter Maneuvers (BFM) before you fly, so you have all the knowledge needed to successfully own the skies. We have a cadre of highly experienced pilot flight instructors with civilian and military backgrounds that have extensive experience in training aerobatics, basic fighter maneuvers (BFM), and formation training. Our civilian trained aerobatic instructors have over 20,000 hours of instruction given and our combat veterans that have flown everything from the F-15 “Eagle” to the F-16 “Viper” to the A-10 “Warthog.” A typical mission profile includes in-processing at the Squadron where customers are fitted with their own flight suit, followed by a briefing on basic fighter maneuvers. After that, we strap you in our brand new state-of-the-art, +10g/-10g, fully aerobatic Extra 330LC and our wingmen are thrust into the ultimate aerobatic thrill ride or dog fight. With a qualified Certified Flight Instructor in back, wingmen are taught the art of aerobatics and/or aerial combat. Complete with high-g maneuvering, all the aerobatics you can handle, military style training maneuvers, and actual head to head dogfighting. The whole experience is caught on video by one of our 4 mounted cameras, perfect for immortalizing our wingman’s first “kill” in a DVD. SCA utilizes all of the latest technology to give the wingman the most realistic simulation possible, including a gun reticle, an electronic targeting system that triggers “smoke on”, and complete visual coverage from 4 different angles. After several engagements, the 2-ship returns to base with the Las Vegas Strip as an unforgettable backdrop. Once our wingmen return from their adventure, they get to truly appreciate our meticulously rennovated hangar that celebrates the history of combat aviation with colorful murals, scale models and of course, decorated with our fleet of high performance aircraft. Once settled in, flight leads and wingmen swap stories, play pool, shoot darts and share the special camaraderie that only exists between pilots after a successful mission. …Fight’s On!

The entire experience is top notch from the quality of the transportation to the VIP waiting room with a wonderful mixture of refreshments. It's not the cheapest thing you're... More

We gave our 15 year old grandson, who is thinking about becoming a pilot, the Operation Recon as a gift. He loved the experience and said it was a 9 or 10 in all the fun things he has done in his life. We also enjoyed seeing the video after the experience and to watch his face as he went... More

Great just what I expected. Good equipment and people. The flight could have been just a little longer. I've never done any low level flying. I liked that the the most.

I feel the need for speed.... Ok so this tourist attraction gets 5 stars...and it really is a awesome experience. It is really a well thought out fully luxurious experience in the bar-lounge pre flight snack bar with luxurious seating and action packed video of aerial combat. Nice staff...super friendly and professional. My son Noah pulled 8.3g's which is more... More

I bought this experience as a gift card at Christmas for my husband. He had done something like this a few years back and said it was crazy fun. Sky Combat Ace trumped it, their super fast and agile planes left him a bit wobbly in the knees but he loved every minute of it. Also the hanger is really... More
