The jet fighter experience in Corsica:
L-39 flights are generally divided into 3 phases:
- a discovery phase, with gentle evolutions to feel the sensations of the fighter plane. This can be done with some rolls or other figures, low altitude flight to feel the speed…
- a discovery flight phase, to enjoy the beauty of the landscape.
- an aerobatic phase: the pilot will look for an aerobatic axis to perform an acrobatic program with all the possible figures: loops, rolls, cuban eight… Strong sensations guaranteed!
- During the whole flight, the pilot and his passenger are in constant communication so that the passenger can share his flight experience and eventually ask for less or more evolutions, depending on his tolerance to G
The pilot always flies according to the passenger’s G-tolerance – the force of acceleration – so that the flight is as pleasant as possible, and the passenger does not get sick.
Your flight is filmed: This flight in a fighter plane in L39 over the Channel is filmed – wide angle video made with a GoPro that films the passenger’s face and gives a good view of the outside.
Option – formation flight with 2 planes
This flight in Corsica can be done in patrol
You can choose this option on the booking site.
The patrol flight is done with 2 planes, which fly in formation.
Fly close to each other. The proximity of the planes is impressive.
Then the planes separate for the aerobatics: looping, avalanches, G-taking. We promise you a maximum of sensations. The pilot is in permanent communication with you and will adapt to your desires/possibilities.
Outside of aerobatics, at the full discretion of the pilot, you can take the stick for a few moments, in dual control, and feel the sensations of flying a fighter plane.
Then, the planes gather again in formation, before returning to the ground and a soft landing.
After the flight in L-39
You will have a debriefing time with the pilot, and you can also take pictures with the pilot around the plane.
You will be tired… So take the time to recover. Flying in a fighter plane is a tiring experience, especially because of the G-taking, which requires a lot of energy. So after the flight, take your time before heading back to the road, especially if you’re driving.
