There are very few adrenaline rushes as brilliant as flying with a fighter pilot. Twisting, turning and rolling in the skies in an ex-military training plane, you'll be able to experience first hand the elegance of these fantastic aircraft. Accompanied by an ex-military instructor, you'll be in safe hands as you take to the controls and have a go yourself!

Once you have arrived and been welcomed to the West Sussex aerobatics centre on your weekday flight you will be provided with refreshments whilst fitting your Top Gun style flying suit. You will then receive a full pre-flight briefing which includes all safety and parachute procedures before a basic lesson on how to perform aerobatic stunts! An ex-military instructor is on hand for one- to-one discussion's to explain how extreme your experience is going to be. Now for the all important flight! Once in the skies your instructor will go through the aerobatic manoeuvres you are going to try, including the techniques required to execute these correctly. Now its your turn to take the controls and attempt these incredible stunts! Feel the G-force as you try loop the loops, barrel rolls and many more. Then its back to base for a personal de-brief with your pilot, including the number of G pulled and a signed flight certificate for you to keep!

There really is nothing quite like performing tricks and twists in these incredible aircraft, and in the company of an experienced instructor you will be at ease as you take to the controls yourself in this unforgettable experience!

Fly With A Fighter Pilot at Goodwood Aerodrome - Weekday in Chichester

I had not taken the controls of an areoplane for 43 years. Te instructor Rob was very patient with me and let me take-off. He went through each manoevre with me and let me try. Although I felt queezy after the loop-the-loop I can say that the whole experience was fantastic. Even as a cadet-pilot 43 years agoo, I had never done aerobatic flying before so almost everything was a new experience. I loved it.

I was very impressed with the experience. The service was very professional and the staff clearly knew what they were doing. In addition, all took place in an organised fashion and on time.

From the smile on my partners face when they landed, I think he had the best experience ever. The staff were very friendly and made sure he was fully aware of everything that was going to happen. Nitro was an excellent instructor. I would love to do it again with out a doubt.

A really great experience. The instructors push as far as you want to go. You can have an easy going flight performing some of the basic maneuvers, or you can really go for it and find out what these planes are really capable of! Brilliant day, excellent instruction, awesome fun!

Fantastic is the only word to describe this experience and would recommend it to anyone. Flying is tailormade to suit individual requirements both physical and mentaly and there is no pressure to perform stunts which you are not happy to do. well done for providing me with a spectacular event! I will be doing it again soon and will be a little more adventurous next time

It was a great experience. I have never suffered from air sickness before, but this experience made me ill (!) which put a damper on things, but it was worth every minute I could endure. I hope to be back again (when I'm fitter!)
