The course of WWII was flipped on it’s head with the introduction of the P-51D Mustang. The phenomenal success of this aircraft has propelled the Mustang to become one of the most famous fighters of World War II.
The P-51D is an American long-range, single-seat fighter-bomber, labeled as the “most aerodynamically perfect pursuit plane in existence” during the war by the Truman Senate War Investigating Committee.
A flight in the Mustang is a flight like no other. Our expertly trained pilots can take you on a smooth, straight level-flight or they can perform a full series of warbird aerobatics, showcasing the legendary capabilities of the fighter. Accelerating to a maximum speed of 703km/h and with an armament capacity of up to six wing-mounted machine guns, you’ll feel every bit like you’re taking flight in the fighter leading to victory in WWII.
Aviation enthusiasts across the world aspire to fly a P-51D Mustang, and for many, this aspiration will remain a dream. Call us today to make the dream a reality!

A fast, strongly constructed, long-range fighter escort that truly packs a punch. "The day I saw Mustangs over Berlin, I knew the jig was up." Hermann Goering
“Dream come true! Went out in the Mustang with super-pilot Cam and had the time of my life! Heaps of fantastic aeros and awesome views of Brisbane and Moreton Bay. It was an awesome experience being inverted in a barrel roll and a loop. This is truly a bucket list experience that I have just put a massive tick beside! Thanks so much to Brad, Cam and Bec at Fighter Pilot adventure flights!”- Graham Gill
“What an awesome experience in the back seat of Steadfast. Super helpful and friendly team and the flying experience was entirely out of this world. How many people can say they have flown in a formation with and tail chased a Mustang while flying in a World Record holding Yakovlev. Simply beyond words! Real bucket list stuff!”- Daniel Drake
“Really great flight in the Yak 52 – all of the staff were really friendly and helpful. I recommend this to anybody looking for some great fun.”- Jack Van Veldhuizen
“What a blast – another adventure off my bucket list. My father was a WWII Spitfire fighter pilot and was awarded a DFC & Legion of Honour for his role in D Day. He has now passed and I have always wanted to experience a flight in a WWII fighter. My first wish was a Spitfire and if not available a P-51 Mustang. Finding a two-seater fighter is not easy but Fighter Pilot solved the problem. Thanks to Cameron and his P-51D I was able to experience the thrills, power and adrenalin of a flight in a Mustang. This was the ultimate flight and a dream come true. Thanks to Rebecca, Cameron & Fighter Pilot team for the experience. The DVD was a bonus to maintain the memory.”- John Cowpe
“The Fighter Pilot experience really is unreal! I never thought I’d get the chance to barrel roll through the sky in a L-39 and feel those G’s. I would recommend this to anyone, especially if you have a Top-Gun fan in your life! It’s the perfect gift that will change their life. Thank you so much Fighter Pilot – I will certainly be back for more!”- Kelly Forbes
