It always was my dream to be a fighter pilot. But THIS joy flight satisfied me! This was an excellent experience. All barrel rolls and G forces were preplanned prior to departure by the very professional pilot Steve. What a great experience. No head jerks, very smooth. Yes, there was aircon. And what a backdrop – Stradbroke island off Brisbane! OMG it was a dream come true for me! Heartily recommend this to anyone. Lovely scenery. The L39 Albatross is an agile and elegant jet plane!
50th birthday present, how good are the crew. Very professional they carry the passion in their hearts and give you so much confidence before the flight it feels like you have done it all before. Will be returning for a few more flights. Great stuff and thanks again.
Amazing !! The experience was a gift for my partner, he absolutely loved it!! Wonderful, friendly team of pilots and had the opportunity to meet one of the CEO’s who showed us around his very own Mustang. Highly recommend this unique and unforgettable experience ��
I was given this opportunity as a birthday present and of every present or crazy things I have done, this was by far the most enjoyable experience of my life so far. The team were so professional and fastastic to deal with and made me feel so compfortable. You will not regret this one bit!!!!
I was given a flight in an L39 Albatross jet fighter trainer for my 50th which I had today. What an experience! the whole experience was excellent and I would definately recommend this to anyone, it was amazing. The team at Fighter Pilot were great, and the pilot Cameron was excellent. We did all sorts of aerobatic manouvres that were fantastic.
Dont go anywhere other than Fighter Pilot if you want the best,
What a blast – another adventure off my bucket list. My father was a WW11 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 WW11 fighter. My first wish was a Spitfire and if not available a P51 Mustang.
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 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!
“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!”
