Great staff on site, very friendly and let me walk the hanger and chat with the mechanic. Easily a top experience in Vegas and if you have the extra breathing room on money get the bigger packages well worth the fun of flying the plane!

This was hands down the most exhilarating experience of my life. It puts any amusement park ride or roller coaster I have ever been on to shame. The handling capabilities of the Extra 330LC are incredible. I would recommend this to anybody looking for a memorable once in a lifetime experience. Simply amazing.

My brother did the top gun experience and has been raving about it ever since. He was thrilled to fly the plane and do the stunt maneuvers. This package isn't for the faint of heart but is a great thrill.

Best experience of my life. The Top Gun flight got me behind the controls of the plane, always wanted to be a pilot. My pilot Kyle was amazing and the staff at SCA. Thanks again, I don't know how I will top this one!!
