It’s live very very soon and this is going to be very fun indeed : Air combat ! We have worked hard on this new experience where you take the controls of a light aircraft to experience something truly amazing: a real dogfight experience. After a morning briefing about flying an aircraft and the techniques of air combat, you take the control of the aircraft with a real fighter pilot in the backseat. Your mission: once in the air, get closer to your enemy, aim and shoot.
Each aircraft is equipped with laser guided systems and smoke systems. The laser system acknowledges if the shot is successful, triggering the smoke the system to go off, just like if the plane had been really hit. The feel is real, and it looks real. This truly is a mind blowing aerial experience. All the training is done by fighter pilots who are still active in the French Air Force, and some who are just retired. They have seen many war zones and have tremendous experience. You are in no better hands to live this experience.
What’s more ? This air combat experience is done in the Medoc area, near Bordeaux, famous for its vineyards. So this makes it the perfect weekend, with air combat, wine tasting, and a bit of culture in Bordeaux. Want to know more ? Follow the link to know more about our air combat dogfight experience.
