This 3-hour adventure begins with a Las Vegas hotel pickup, then travel to the Henderson Executive Airport, approximately 13 miles from the Las Vegas strip. After a pilot meet and greet and a safety briefing to prepare for the flight, climb on board a state-of-the-art Extra 330LC aircraft, the world’s most advanced certified aerobatic airplane. 

With the professional fighter pilot at the controls, take off, soaring low and zooming over the beautiful mountains and valleys of the Mojave Desert. Check out the great view of the surrounding landscape, including the beautiful Las Vegas strip, from the desert sky above. Then get ready to experience a few basic aerobatic maneuvers, like the aileron roll, loop, barrel roll and hammerhead. It will feel like a roller coaster without the rails.

To end the flight, complete a military-style landing on the runway back at the airport. 

This unique fighter pilot experience is complete with a return trip to Las Vegas for a hotel drop-off.

Go here before the Casino

The entire experience was great!! Wish I had gone for a little more of a package. Next time I am in Vegas this is a definite stop!!
The Best Vegas Experience
, Mar 2021
GREAT people, incredible experience and it's just as fun for the people that aren't flying than are! We were in Vegas for 5 days and this was BY FAR the best part. It's not cheap, but it is also a once-in-a-lifetime adventure that frankly, is worth it. If you are hesitating about it...just do it!!
What a old lady found to do in Vegas
, Feb 2021
Something to add on a bucket list For something I never thought of doing but doing it anyways, I was not disappointed. I love to fly and always enjoyed watching the small airplanes in my area doing their thing on weekends. When I was looking for things to do in Vegas and I saw this, it was hell why not, you only live once. The staff and other quests that was there were great. Made me feel at ease on the ground and in the air. Anyone who wants to try something different highly recommend it. Definitely different.
Top Gun

This was an awesome experience one that wasn’t quite on my bucket list but boy did the Owner-my guide make it memorable. I felt like I was not only watching a movie but in the movie. I would recommend this to anyone looking for some adventure in their lives.

L.a.m.b. Is the absolute best pilot! She gave my husband a ride to remember♥️ This is a great treat for your hubby’s ladies.
Experience of a lifetime
, Nov 2020
This is the experience of a lifetime. Flying upside down through red rock canyon where we had hiked the day before was beyond belief. The pilots read us beautifully and did fun but a little less aggressive with my partner and took me to my limits. Amazing.
Simply amazing
