Fly Air Combat and Aerobatics with your opponent aircraft - yourself! Your ex-military flying instructor will demonstrate a formation take-off and close formation flying in the T67 Firefly aircraft. Flying close to another aircraft, you fly some aerobatic manoeuvres to acclimatise you to the g-force, and then you will be introduced to tailchasing and air combat against your opponent. 

Manoeuvre your aeroplane to get on the bad guy’s tail. Once you’re in a firing position, squeeze the trigger - “GUNS GUNS GUNS!!”. If you’re successful in shooting down the bandit, then it’s an obligatory cheer of “Yeehah, Jester’s dead” and back to the airfield for a flyby of the tower – assuming, of course, that the pattern is not full...!




You and your opponent(s) will be kitted out in military flying suits. You then choose your call-sign name badge ("Maverick", "Iceman" etc) for the day.


You will be taught how to fly aerobatics and air combat manoeuvres. The briefing includes a detailed safety/parachute brief.

TOP GUN COMBAT FLIGHT: COVID-19 Coronavirus Update:

In 2020 we were able to operate as "normal" from July-October inclusive, subject to the measures outlined below. 

At the moment we are planning to reopen for flight experiences on 22nd March.

The safety of our customers and staff remains paramount.  Measures we have put in place include but are not limited to:

  1. Anyone who has come within 2m of someone who has confirmed COVID-19 in the past 14 days or is experiencing symptoms must not come to the Aerodrome
  2. Only the participant/guest will be permitted into our building. Maximum of 4 participants briefed at a time. Briefings conducted outdoors where possible.  Masks optional.
  3. Friends and family and the general public are not allowed into the building and should remain outside, in the Cafe (or in their cars). There is plenty of open space at the airfield. Non-flyers will still be able to watch the participant get into/out of the aircraft.
  4. We are not intending to use facemasks in the aircraft - if you would like to wear one, please bring it with you on the day as we do not provide them. We will take the temperature of all participants/guests on arrival (using a contactless thermometer).
  5. Everyone must wash their hands before entering our building (hand sanitisers provided).
  6. Strict hygiene regime around our offices and aircraft, with no sharing of headsets.
  • Must be 12 or over
  • Must be physically capable of getting into and out of the aircraft without assistance**.
  • Must complete a Medical Self-Certification Form before flying with us
  • If you are aged 71 or over, we will require a letter from your doctor confirming your suitability to fly with us
  • Extra300 Aircraft Limits: Weight limit is 15 stone 7 lbs (98kg). Minimum height 5ft (1.52m). Maximum height 6ft 4" (1.93m)
  • T67 Firefly Aircraft Limits: Weight limit is 17 stone (108kg). Minimum height 5ft (1.52m). Maximum height 6ft 5". (1.95m)
  • Weight limits are based on participant weight fully clothed and wearing shoes.
  • It is essential that you wear light flat shoes with good grips - trainers are ideal.
  • We shall kit you out in genuine military flying suits - please wear comfortable casual clothes to go underneath - i.e. trousers/shorts, T shirt, and sweater.
  • You should not wear skirts/ dresses.
  • It is a good idea to bring a light jacket as it can be exposed on the airfield.
  • Sunglasses are recommended.
  • Loose objects (including cameras, go-pros and phones) are not allowed in the aircraft cockpit.
  • We normally suggest that you eat a light breakfast/snack 1-2 hours before you fly as flying aerobatics on an empty stomach (which causes low blood sugar) can increase the propensity for airsickness.
  • A heavy meal just before your flight is not recommended, and neither is strong tasting food and drink (coffee in particular can cause nausea)
  • Alcohol MUST be avoided.
  • Family/friends can come to the airfield itself, HOWEVER, due to space constraints, only 1-2 guests per flying participant can be accommodated in our crew room during the flying brief.
  • Your family/friends will only be able to see you get into the aircraft, take-off and land, and will not see you doing aerobatics.
  • We recommend that you do not bring young children as there is little to entertain them at the airfield.
  • Dogs are allowed at the Aerodrome, but must be kept on a lead at all times and not cross any fences/barriers (i.e. cannot go airside). Dogs are not allowed in the crew room/offices but there is grass space outside the building where you can sit with them.
  • For safety and insurance reasons family/friends are not allowed airside.
  • You are encouraged to do as much (or as little) of the flying as you like. As you will be participating in a trial lesson, your flight will count towards a private pilot's licence and you will be able to fly the aircraft in all regimes of flight apart from close formation, take-off and landing.
  • You will be offered the chance to carry out aerobatic manoeuvres yourself, even if you have never flown in a light aircraft before, all under the close guidance of the instructor who will show you the way.
  • Flights are tailored to the individual and can provide anything from a gentle flying lesson around the area to extreme aerobatics and everything in between, depending on your nerves or your g-tolerance. This will all be discussed as part of the initial briefing session and will be continually monitored during the flight by experienced instructors.
  • Although some participants expect to feel ill, less than 1% actually are, partly because you actually fly a large proportion of the flights yourself, and if you feel uncomfortable, you can relax or return to base at any time.
  • Group briefings normally take place promptly at 10.30am or 1.00pm (we ask that you arrive at least 30 minutes early to check in and do paperwork etc). You are usually briefed in groups of typically 4-6 people, and then flown sequentially in pairs or sometimes threes. The briefing is very thorough, and is followed by changing into flying kit, so the first flying "wave" starts around an hour after your briefing start time. The aim is that you spend no longer than 3 hours from start to finish, but occasionally it may be longer than this if delayed. If all runs smoothly, the experience should take 2 - 2.5 hours.
  • It is difficult to give very accurate times of when you will be flying as there are many things that can cause delays, which include weather, queues for refuelling, minor technical hitches etc. We will try to keep you informed of the time that you are likely to be in the aircraft. If you are under time pressure, please make sure that you let us know in advance and we will endeavour to fly with you first.
  • Quoted flight times are defined as "airborne time + 10 minutes”; the 10 minutes on the ground is an average time and can vary considerably depending on how busy the airfield is and other factors. A 35-minute flight will therefore consist of 25 minutes in the air and around 10 minutes on the ground, with the "loggable" time in the pilot's logbook being 35 minutes (in line with the aviation industry standard which measures flight times from the time the aeroplane starts to move up to the point where it finishes moving). The airborne time may occasionally vary from the time quoted (it may be more or less) for several reasons including busy aircraft circuit traffic on returning to the airfield, passenger airsickness etc.
  • A personalised flight certificate signed by your instructor will be provided.
  • A video of your flight can be provided, it is up to you if you wish to purchase your video after the flight (price £49). This is a HD video provided on a USB memory stick and can be taken with you on the day.
  • Please aim to arrive at least 30 minutes early. If you arrive late and we are unable to fit you into the schedule, you may forfeit your voucher entirely.
  • Flight subject to weather
  • Aircraft are meticulously maintained to the highest possible standards, in strict accordance with CAA regulations. From time-to-time minor technical faults may arise which may preclude flying either temporarily or for the whole day. If this situation occurs, we will endeavour to fix the problem or "borrow" another aircraft wherever possible, but this cannot always be guaranteed and, as a last resort we may have to reschedule you to another day at late notice.
  • Airfield availability is not normally an issue, except during the winter months when the grass runways can be prone to waterlogging which means that it is not safe to operate aircraft, so the airfield may be closed. Other occasions when the airfield may not be available to us include aircraft unserviceability’s that close the runway, events (air shows etc), runways unusable (e.g. due to flooding, chemical/oil spillages and resurfacing work). Occasionally, airfields will be closed at short notice (including for royal flights) and we may not always receive sufficient notice to cancel scheduled flying in time.
  • There is a huge emphasis on safety, as the military ethos insists that every eventuality is prepared for, no matter how unlikely. The care of guests is paramount and the same safety standards used by the RAF to ensure that everybody enjoys a great time without taking risks is employed. The aircraft are maintained in strict accordance with CAA regulations and instructor pilots have supreme credentials. Although aerobatic and formation flying may 'look' dangerous, the flying is done within strict rules around procedures, minimum altitudes and distances between the aircraft. The instructors have many thousands of hours of military and civilian experience which helps ensure that they are perfectly prepared for flying with you.
  • The operator is Fully insured at Lloyds for personal and third-party risks up to £10 million, and your own personal policies are normally unaffected by the activity (although you should check this in advance with your provider). Copies of insurance cover are available on request. Please note that personal effects are not covered. covered.
