Weekend Top Gun Flight Experience - Goodwood

You won't need a wingman during this insane Top Gun flying experience. Flying with an instructor, you take control of a 'Bulldog' monoplane to perform some aerobatic tricks - an unforgettable flight!

Price for 1 participant

This is your chance to fly like a fighter pilot! Anyone who has watched Top Gun, or marvelled at the glorious Red Arrows as they soar through the skies, has quite possibly fantasised about being the pilot in the cockpit. Aerobatic flying is amazing to watch, and even more amazing to perform! With this superb aerobatic experience, valid for a weekend booking, you can don a flying suit just like Maverick's and fly a Bulldog plane yourself!

The Bulldog is a low-wing monoplane that has been used by 10 different Air forces, and in some cases was equipped with rockets and 7.62mm machine guns! But don't worry, the Bulldog you will be flying in is purely used for aerobatic flying and airborne fun - no guns! You will be taught by ex-military instructors, who will demonstrate a formation take-off as well as some close-formation flying, before teaching you how to fly aerobatics yourself. Perform some aerobatics yourself, before trying out a spot of tail-chasing - serious Top Gun action.

On arrival you will be provided with refreshments before kitting out into your flying suit. You choose your call-sign name badge ("Maverick", "Iceman" etc) for the day before attending a full pre flight briefing which includes all safety/parachute procedures, and how to fly aerobatics and air combat (yourself!). It is now time for your flight! This will include a formation take-off (2 aircraft), formation close maneuvering in the climb, demonstration and practice of effects of controls and aerobatics maneuvers, 'Hands on stick' time - opportunity for you to fly some aerobatics yourself, demo & practice tail-chase with other airplane - 'shoot the bandit' & smoke! Finally your instructor will talk you through return to base. Your experience will finish with a full de-brief and the presentation of a certificate to keep as a memento of your day.

You can purchase a DVD of the day for £49.
