Discovery Flight in a Jet Fighter
What is a discovery flight? Explore the sensations of jet-propelled flight in an L-39C Albatros jet fighter piloted by a highly-experienced and FAA-certified instructor pilot. You can experience the “Thrill of a Lifetime” in air-conditioned and pressurized comfort, doing such maneuvers as a high-performance climb, slow rolls, barrel rolls, military wing overs, rapid acceleration descent maneuvers and a carrier type landing.
But there’s more… YOU get to FLY the jet fighter! Each flight is customized! Explore the vagaries of jet-propelled flight as you control the aircraft, learning what it takes to pilot it safely through various maneuvers. If you have ever yearned to break free from the bonds of earth and explore the atmosphere above, then a “Discovery Flight” with Jet Fighters International is your ticket to freedom at high speed over beautiful Florida.
Discovery Flights are the perfect gift for that special someone, or even yourself, to celebrate milestones or significant accomplishments. Contact Jet Fighters International in Fort Lauderdale and let us design the perfect jet fighter experience for you or your loved one.
