This 15 minute Top Gun Fighter Jet flight Simulator experience is for one person and guaranteed to raise your adrenaline and send chills down your spin. You will be kitted out in a military flying suit* and then choose your call-sign (“Maverick”, “Iceman” etc.) before heading to your aircraft. Your flying instructor will then guide you through a take-off and close formation flying, this is then followed by some aerobatic manoeuvres to acclimatise you to the g-force, and then you will be introduced to tail chasing and air combat against your opponent.
You will manoeuvre your aeroplane to get on the bad guy’s tail. Once you’re in a firing position, squeeze the trigger and if you’re successful in shooting down the bandit, then it’s an obligatory cheer of “yeehah, jester’s dead” and back to the airfield for a flyby of the tower, to head back for your debrief, on how good you were!
