The L-39 fighter jet fighter experience:
L-39 flights generally consist of three phases:
- A discovery phase, with gentle evolutions to feel the sensations of the fighter jet, such as a few rolls or other figures, low altitude flying to feel the speed…
- A discovery flight phase, to enjoy the beauty of the landscapes.
- An aerobatic phase: the pilot will seek an axis of aerobatics to perform an acrobatic program with all possible figures: loops, rolls, Cuban eight… Strong sensations guaranteed!
Throughout the flight, the pilot and the passenger are in constant communication so that the passenger can share his or her flight experience and possibly ask for fewer or more evolutions, depending on his or her tolerance to G-forces.
The pilot always flies according to the passenger’s tolerance to G-forces, so that the flight is as pleasant as possible and the passenger is not sick.
