Experience first hand the thrill of flight in a famous World War Two fighter.
Experience the excitement and thrills of an adrenaline filled aerobatic flight in our Russian Yak-52 powered by a 9 cylinder, 360hp, supercharged radial engine. Originally built to train Russian pilots for combat manoeuvres, today our Yak 52 allows you to feel like a Fighter Pilot as you loop and roll through the sky on an adrenalin filled Warbird Adventure flight.
Upon arrival to our Fighter Pilot base at Archerfield Airport you will be greeted by our friendly team and receive a full briefing including all aspects of the flight, aircraft details and safety procedures. Then you’ll be strapped into the aircraft and feel the roar of the radial engine come to life. After take-off you will set your targets on Greenbank where you will be commence your aerobatic session including loops, barrel roll, half cuban, wing-overs, stall turn and flying inverted. These mind blowing manoeuvres will result in G-forces ranging from +4 to -1 and reach speeds in excess of 400km/h.
Not sure if you are up for aerobatics, don’t worry, you will be in constant communication with your pilot via headsets and you can crank up the Adrenalin with torque rolls, lomcovák, and a hesitation roll, or take it down a notch at any point. Remember your in control of the intensity.
During the debrief you’ll be given the opportunity to discuss your flight and have photographs with the aircraft and your guests. If a USB is purchased on the day, you will also be shown your experience footage from the flight, while it downloads.
This is truly a fantastic experience and a perfect gift idea for aviation fans, adrenalin-junkies and something different for that special someone.
