Want to fly like a fighter pilot? Stop dreaming and climb aboard a stunt plane on this thrilling fly or ride adventure near Las Vegas. Choose from one of four different flight possibilities, then strap in and get ready for the ride of a lifetime — from an adrenaline-pumping sightseeing experience over Sin City to an aerial dogfight, or something in between. It’s the ultimate Las Vegas adrenaline rush. Hotel pickup and drop-off included.
What to Expect
After a hotel pickup, make the 20-minute drive south from the Las Vegas Strip to Sky Combat Ace near the Henderson Executive Airport. 

Sky Combat Ace (SCA) is the world's most extreme aviation attraction. Choose to go along for an adrenaline-pumping sightseeing ride or get behind the controls and fly the fighter jet (with the supervision of a highly trained SCA fighter pilot, of course). It’s easy to become the pilot, pulling Gs and squeezing the trigger to ‘get the kill.’ Best of all, there is absolutely no flight experience necessary.

To begin, select a flight path. Want to perform aerial tricks like in an airshow? How about challenging friends in an aerial dogfight? Maybe an unforgettable sightseeing experience? Can't decide? Pick a great combo package and get the best of the bunch.

Let’s talk aerobatics. Operation Recon is for those who might be feeling a bit of trepidation or simply want to see what the Extra 330 monoplane can do. This is a great way to test the water. The Afterburner is like a roller coaster without the rails, full of non-stop spins, rolls, loops, tumbles and heart-pounding action. Experience a full aerobatic airshow routine — from inside the plane. Finally, the Top Gun experience is designed for those who want to get serious about aerial thrills and fly the plane through a complete aerobatic routine. This one’s not for the faint of heart.

For those thrill seekers who want the Air Combat experience, upgrade to wage a battle for aerial dominance where there can only be one victor. Climb aboard and fly the plane with a trained SCA fighter pilot. This is the real deal.

Best 50th Birthday Gift

I bought this for my husband's 50th birthday and it was the best gift ever! It's a first class operation from start to finish and everyone is super friendly.
