Your jet fighter flight will vary depending on the length of time you choose. Here are the details of the itineraries of your flight in a fighter plane. The route noted is indicative. While performing a formation flight, you can also decide with your pilots, to concentrate on aerobatisc or any other aspect of the flight.
Itinerary 30mn by fighter plane:
Discovery of the flight in a fighter plane. The flight is broken down into 3 phases, with a first phase of discovery, a second phase of aerobatics (felt zero G, aerobatics), then a third phase of low-altitude flight. In 30 minutes, you take off from Rennes and go north to make the changes.
Itinerary 45mn by fighter plane:
Same as 30mn, but you push further north, to Mont St Michel. You fly over Mont St Michel at altitude – low altitude prohibited – and the bay at low altitude.
On landing, you will have the opportunity to take a few photos with the pilot, and especially to discover the videos made to share with those who came to accompany you.
Debrief with the pilots after the flight.
Recovery: the flight in a fighter plane is tiring, in particular because of the Gs (force of acceleration), and you can relax after the flight to “recover”.
Graduation of your fighter plane flight
Your plane: the Fouga Magister
The Aerospatiale-Potez-Fouga CM170 Magister is a jet aircraft designed in France in the early 1950s, and initially intended for the training of military pilots. Recognizable by its rear “V” (called “butterfly”) tail, it has been produced in a thousand examples and used by around twenty countries. Many copies are still in service today.
Thanks to its capabilities, the Fouga Magister was adopted as an elementary aerobatic aircraft for several acrobatic patrols, including the famous Patrouille de France, which used it for 24 years (from 1956 to 1980).
The pilots :
The pilots are highly qualified, some of whom have a military background as a fighter pilot, leader or pilot within the Patrouille de France, and especially with the desire to share their passion. Pilots fly based on your G (acceleration force) tolerance, and you are in constant communication with the pilot during your fighter jet flight.
Video option: the video of your flight is to be paid on site (60 euros per person). Wide angle video delivered to SD card.
