Video fighter pilot experience. We love this experience so much that we can not resist presenting a new video of the fighter pilot experience.

A dogfight, or dog fight, is a form of aerial combat between fighter aircraft; in particular, combat of maneuver at short range, where each side is aware of the others presence. Dogfighting first appeared during World War I, shortly after the invention of the airplane. Until at least 1992, it was a component in every major war, despite beliefs after World War II that increasingly greater speeds and longer range weapons would make dogfighting obsolete. Modern terminology for air-to-air combat is air combat maneuvering (ACM), which refers to tactical situations requiring the use of individual basic fighter maneuvers (BFM) to attack or evade one or more opponents. This differs from aerial warfare, which deals with the strategy involved in planning and executing various missions. The term dogfight has been used for centuries to describe a melee; a fierce battle between two or more opponents. The term gained popularity during World War II, although its origin in air combat can be traced to the latter years of World War. So you should try to experience this ultimate experience and feel what a fighter pilot would feel, as this is truly awesome!

For anyone who has dreamed about becoming a fighter pilot and unfortunately having to do something else for a living, here is an awsome experience that will turn your childhood dream into reality. Thanks to military fighter pilots in the French air force, you can now take the controls of light aircrafts, learn to fly them, and engage in an air combat. Both aircrafts are equipped with a laser system that triggers a smoke system if you aim right. This is as simple as can be, and so much fun. You will experience G force, and be welcomed by a fantastic team near Bordeaux, south west France. Check out this experience by following the link: fighter pilot experience. And here is a video to give you a quick preview of what’s waiting for you…

Be a fighter pilot for a day!

Be a real fighter pilot ! We have started to have some serious fun with our friends in France, offering real air combat experience. Except of course, the shooting is laser guided, and if you shoot right, the smoke system engages and you can see your opponent smoking, just like the plane would if it had been touched by live amo. The experience is amazing and you will feel like a real fighter pilot.

The program lasts a full day. You are welcomed by the team in St Estephe, near Bordeaux. All are fighter pilots, some active, others are early retired from the French Air Force, but all have extensive experience in flying jet fighters. They will brief you in the morning on how to fly an aircraft, but also the basic air combat maneuvers. After lunch, you will be put in situation, with too aircraft taking off, one baddy and yourself. Your mission will be to shoot the aircraft down.

That’s when the fun starts. You will be in control of the aircraft in the air, but be reassured, there is a real fighter pilot in the back seat. You will engage in air combat and put in practive what you have learned in the morning. There two flights during the afternoon with a debrief in between, to perfect your technique.
