A ‘Top Gun’ experience above the Nevada desert

4th April 2011 Print

Fly high above the skies in the Nevada desert pulling Gs just like Tom Cruise in Top Gun, courtesy of US specialist, Bon Voyage.

This ‘once in a lifetime’ experience – available exclusively in the UK by Bon Voyage - is under the guidance of professional former F16 fighter pilots including highly experienced combat veterans and one-time ‘Thunderbirds’ team members, the US Air Force’s aerial acrobatic team.

The planes which are used are Extra 330LC aerobatic aircraft - equipped with special features to simulate aerial dogfights - and travel through the air at over 200 mph.

During the thrilling 45-minute flying experience, visitors get a taste of what it’s like  to be a combat fighter pilot and, after strapping on a state-of-the-art flying suit, are taught the art of aerial combat, complete with high-g manoeuvring, military manoeuvres, dogfights and the satisfaction of scoring a hit on an opponent.  The flight back to base is in close fingertip formation.

The above extraordinary experience can be incorporated into a short break package to Las Vegas and costs from £2365 per person.

This twin share price includes return Heathrow flights, four nights’ room-only suite accommodation at the five-star Wynn Encore and ‘fighter pilot’ package (as above) with return limousine transfers to the Nevada desert combat area and video keepsake.
