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.

Frequently Asked Questions

The answers provided below are based on answers previously given by the tour provider to customers’ questions.

Filter by:

Q:Can I participate in the Flight Experience if I have no flight experience?

A:Absolutely! All of the aircraft are equipped with dual flight controls, so your highly trained instructor pilot can easily take the controls in the unlikely event that it becomes necessary.

Oct. 2021

Q:Can I bring friends and family to my Flight Experience?

A:Guests are welcome if seats are available on the shuttle. To ensure availability, call the local operator at the phone number on your ticket at least 24 hours in advance. Shuttle availability for non-flying guests cannot be guaranteed.

Oct. 2021

Q:Are photos and/or videos available for purchase during my Flight Experience package?

A:There are several video and photo packages to choose from and they start at $50 per person. You will see photo samples at check-in, so there is no need to book these services in advance.

Oct. 2021

Q:Can I bring my own camera/GoPro in the airplane during my Flight Experience?

A:Due to FAA rules and regulations, unapproved cameras are not permitted. All planes have mounts and cameras in various locations (to capture the action from different angles) which have been tested to withstand the rigors of unlimited aerobatics.

Oct. 2021

Q:Are there any age, weight or height restrictions for the Flight Experience?

A:There are no age limits, but guests under 18 require an adult to sign a waiver. Guests must weigh between 80lbs (36 kilos) and 265lb (130 kg) with a maximum height of 6'6 (2 meters) to participate.

Oct. 2021

Q:What type of plane do we fly during the Flight Experience?

A:The Extra 330 monoplane is built of carbon fiber construction, which is 9 times stronger than steel. It has zero prohibited maneuvers, which is a testament to its strength and engineering.

Oct. 2021

Q:How safe is the Flight Experience?

A:Safety is the #1 priority. All pilots are certified flight instructors and go through a rigorous training program to qualify for Sky Combat Ace. In addition, the FAA requires all participants to wear parachutes on aerobatic flights.

Oct. 2021

Q:Will I get airsick during the Flight Experience?

A:Your pilot will do everything in their power to prevent airsickness. You will start with basic maneuvers and work your way up to more advanced profiles. If necessary, you can take a break between maneuvers to give your stomach a chance to catch up.

Amazing experience and I would definitely do it again. And by doing it again I mean holding on to the side rail and screaming my lungs out while the pilot does the actual combat stunts. Still felt cool afterwards.

Melissa_A, Aug 2023
The entire experience was better than my expectations! Truly an incredible experience! Everyone should try this at least once! It has now put roller coasters to shame for me! I just want to fly!!!!
Amazing life experience
Andrea_N, Apr 2023
Was an amazing experience! Pilots were amazing and showed me some awesome tricks in the sky. Definitely would recommend
Not cheap. But worth every penny
Paul_R, July 2022
The facilities are excellent. The pre flight prep was succinct and informative. The pool ERS were terrific. Really enhanced the experience. Actually flying the plane wasn’t a part of my expectations but it was great fun. Loved the dog fight!

A life experience, it is amazing what you feel, think and enjoy while being airborne and afterwards.
One of a kind experience
Chris_C, June 2022
It was a great experience, chances are you'd never be upside down in an airplane if you are not a fighter jet pilot or a stunt plane pilot. This experience is one of a kind, although a bit pricy but you just won't get this experience anywhere else.
Ashly_L, Jan 2022
The BEST EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE! Make sure you invest in their high quality video and photo package! I’m so glad I did so I can keep reliving the experience. It was unforgettable absolutely incredible and WORTH EVERY PENNY!! Shoutout to the best pilot ever, Tex! ❤️❤️❤️✨✨✨✨

Do THIS while your here
Thomas_J, Aug 2020
I have traveled all over the world and done multiple experiences I I was blown away by the experience here The package is on Viator a little bit confusing The best one to get a top gun with a $299 add-on to go 20 extra minutes that gets you to a beautiful view of red rock Canyon-upside down Juice was my PRO He is a licensed private commercial pilot and and aeronautics acrobatic pro The flight begins out of the airport and with the $299 add-on you get to go all the way to red rock Canyon and start your maneuvers This plane pulls 3 to 4 g’seasily and up to seven g’s He will ask you from 1 to 10 you’re in density and I picked a seven I was still blown away at seven Make sure you do eat approximately one hour before but not something heavy I did vomit when I got back to the hotel but don’t vomit in the plane LOL Top gun is the best experience but if you have two or three people order the air combat experience an ad on some time I also purchased the upgraded video
crazy and wicked
martin k, Aug 2019

Would fully recommend its fast and mad but wonderful! So glad I did it! Go for it truly amazing!

Nevil_S, Aug 2016
Persuaded my husband to do this trip and he was not disappointed. His pilot Colin, took him through various manoeuvres including flying upside down, barrel rolls and loop the loops, then my husband took the controls and did them himself! Before coming back they also did a 'bombing run' which meant flying very low. He has some great photos taken by the team and the flight was captured on video. A brilliant day out.

Great Experience ! I keep tackling my Bucket List! I've always dreamed of being a fighter pilot.. Today I stopped dreaming and climbed aboard my very own stunt plane. It was not a simulation.
