About the experience

Get ready to fly with a fighter pilot! You'll team up with an ex-military fighter pilot to take an ex-military trainer aircraft for a ride at Goodwood Aerodrome. This adventure allows you to fly as mildly or wildly as you prefer. During this experience, you'll learn the tricks and manoeuvres to fly like a skilled fighter pilot. With the nimble T67 Firefly aircraft, you'll quickly master classic aerobatic moves within minutes of takeoff. The experience begins with practising basic manoeuvres such as turning, climbing, and descending. Once you've mastered these, you'll move on to the aerobatic section of the fighter pilot syllabus. At the controls, you'll execute stylish rolls, loops, and turns, just like those seen at airshows. In the Firefly aircraft, you'll be seated up front alongside your experienced fighter pilot instructor, fully immersed in the flying experience. You'll even get to try the fighter pilot's favourite manoeuvres, such as the Stall Turn, also known as the Hammerhead Turn, and the Derry role, where you'll need to master left and right rolls. This exhilarating experience will test your skills and push you to pull some serious g-forces during the flight.
