Departure Point

Traveler pickup is offered
Pickup is available from most Las Vegas hotels

After a hotel pickup, make the 20-minute drive south from the Las Vegas Strip to Sky Combat Ace near the Henderson Executive Airport. 

Sky Combat Ace (SCA) is the world's most extreme aviation attraction. Choose to go along for an adrenaline-pumping sightseeing ride or get behind the controls and fly the fighter jet (with the supervision of a highly trained SCA fighter pilot, of course). It’s easy to become the pilot, pulling Gs and squeezing the trigger to ‘get the kill.’ Best of all, there is absolutely no flight experience necessary.

To begin, select a flight path. Want to perform aerial tricks like in an airshow? How about challenging friends in an aerial dogfight? Maybe an unforgettable sightseeing experience? Can't decide? Pick a great combo package and get the best of the bunch.

Let’s talk aerobatics. Operation Recon is for those who might be feeling a bit of trepidation or simply want to see what the Extra 330 monoplane can do. This is a great way to test the water. The Afterburner is like a roller coaster without the rails, full of non-stop spins, rolls, loops, tumbles and heart-pounding action. Experience a full aerobatic airshow routine — from inside the plane. Finally, the Top Gun experience is designed for those who want to get serious about aerial thrills and fly the plane through a complete aerobatic routine. This one’s not for the faint of heart.

For those thrill seekers who want the Air Combat experience, upgrade to wage a battle for aerial dominance where there can only be one victor. Climb aboard and fly the plane with a trained SCA fighter pilot. This is the real deal.

I have traveled all over the world and done multiple experiences I I was blown away by the experience here The package is on Viator a little bit confusing The best one to get a top gun with a $299 add-on to go 20 extra minutes that gets you to a beautiful view of red rock Canyon-upside down Juice was my PRO He is a licensed private commercial pilot and and aeronautics acrobatic pro The flight begins out of the airport and with the $299 add-on you get to go all the way to red rock Canyon and start your maneuvers This plane pulls 3 to 4 g’seasily and up to seven g’s He will ask you from 1 to 10 you’re in density and I picked a seven I was still blown away at seven Make sure you do eat approximately one hour before but not something heavy I did vomit when I got back to the hotel but don’t vomit in the plane LOL Top gun is the best experience but if you have two or three people order the air combat experience an ad on some time I also purchased the upgraded video

Amazing very professional fairly expensive and the video offerings cost a lot but you have to go for it as it is a once in a lifetime deal! Loved it only bit of advice do not go for a Las Vegas breakfast before hand those who did where very sick so I personally choose to give it a miss very wise decision! Would fully recommend its fast and mad but wonderful! So glad I did it! Go for it truly amazing!

It was so fun. Russ and the entire combat team were so friendly, and went out of their way to help you enjoy the flight. This is definitely worth the money and by far the best ecperience in Vegas.

Amazing experience and I would definitely do it again. And by doing it again I mean holding on to the side rail and screaming my lungs out while the pilot does the actual combat stunts. Still felt cool afterwards.
