What You Can Expect

Viator Exclusive: Fighter Pilot Experience in Las Vegas

Viator Exclusive: Fighter Pilot Experience in Las Vegas

Pickup from Las Vegas hotel will take you to the Henderson Airport, where you’ll receive a safety briefing to prep you for your flight. You and your expert pilot will board your state-of-the-art aerobatic Extra 330LC, this style of plane has been in the air race industry for 30 years. Both planes are meticulously restored, and the Waco biplane seats two in the front seat, so you both can experience this exciting moment with a friend.

Take off and soar low over the beautiful mountains and valleys of the Mojave Desert on an adrenaline-pumping flight. Catch great views of the surrounding sights and see the Las Vegas skyline from above!

After the flight, you'll complete a military-style landing, where the plane comes in at an elongated spiral -- a tactic used by the military to make it difficult for the enemy to shoot at the plane.

You'll then be taken back to your hotel with unforgettable memories to share.

I can't stop raving about this experience to everyone I come across. This was the highlight of my trip to Las Vegas and probably my whole trip to the US. Very worth the money I paid. Ended going up in a fighter pilot plane (not the biplane) due to weather conditions and paid more for this.excellent!

Everything about this was excellent. Things I could never have done at home. The management, staff and crew were fabulous. Actually upgraded to recon for this and had a blast. if anybody has a sense of adventure and likes roller coaster rides, this is the best ride that I have ever been on. Tex was awesome.
