Top Gun flying combat experiences

Do you remember Top Gun, one of the cheesiest films of the 80s? If you do, you’re probably too old to be the pilot of a fighter jet, but you’re never too old to test your own aircraft-handling skills in a training plane.

A company near Portsmouth has made your Top Gun fantasy a reality with the opportunity to fly a Bulldog training plane, with expert training from an ex-military pilot. You’ll even do some tail chasing and air combat in an adrenaline fuelled flight.

Alasdair’s recommended Top Gun experience

I selected this Top Gun gift because it’s the best price for a great experience. Not bad eh?

What happens on the day?
Of course you’ll have a full safety briefing at the start. After this, it’s up and away with a formation take-off and demonstration of close formation manoeuvering. Your instructor will do most of the important parts of flying – taking off, landing, and teaching you the controls. Once you’ve got the hang of it, you can take over and try out some of the aerobatics moves yourself. This includes the tail chasing and air combat that gives this experience its name.

Your flight lasts about 40 minutes, and the flight is tailored to suit you. This means it can be a nice mild trip across the countryside, or a wild and crazy adrenaline ride. It’s up to you, but I’d recommend the crazy one!

Who to buy from?
The experience companies charge the same price as if you buy from the host supplier, but when you buy from the big experience companies you can also use voucher codes to lower the price even more. When you add the security of buying through a large, trusted experience company who also let you swap your voucher for another experience, I think it’s a no-brainer to buy from one of the providers below.

What’s the difference between these experiences.
The only difference is the day you can use the voucher. The cheaper experiences are only valid for weekday flights, and you’ll have to pay more for a weekend ticket. Apart form that, the Top Gun gifts are identical. So choose weekday versus weekend, and find the cheapest. Easy!
