Fighter Lead-In Program - $2,095 or $3,990 for 2 participants
Our most comprehensive training program building on the Basic Fighter Maneuvers (BFM), our Fighter Lead In Program is devoted to formation flight, high & low yo-yos, lead and lag pursuits, displacement rolls, vertical and oblique turns.
You will actually fly two separate missions; the first flight is a practice session focusing on the fundamentals of each maneuver and preparing you for the second flight where you will use the maneuvers in a variety of tactical situations. Once you have completed both missions you will receive your flight video to commemorate your day at Air Combat USA®. In addition you are inducted into the Air Combat USA® Fighter Squadron entitling you to fly at current Squadron Member rates. This is a real fighter pilot fantasy.
NO refunds if you cannot complete the course as scheduled.
