Do you feel the Need for Speed!!? Then try our Top Gun Fighter Jet Experience – Guaranteed adrenaline & chills!

Launch from the aircraft carrier, fly air combat dogfights & aerobatic missions in our Supersonic F/A-18 Hornet Jet Fighter Flight Simulator, your flying instructor will guide you through a take-off & close formation flying followed by some aerobatic manoeuvres to acclimatise you to the g-force, & then you will be introduced to tail chasing & 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” & back to the airfield for a flyby of the tower – assuming, of course, that the pattern is not full…!

F/A-18 Hornet – Data & Performance

The McDonnell Douglas F/A-18 Hornet is a twin-engine, supersonic, all-weather, carrier-capable, multirole combat jet, designed as both a fighter & attack aircraft (hence the F/A designation). Designed by McDonnell Douglas (now part of Boeing – check out our Boeing 737 Simulator)

The F/A-18 Hornet was designed to be a highly versatile aircraft due to its avionics, cockpit displays, & excellent aerodynamic characteristics, with the ability to carry a wide variety of weapons. The aircraft can perform fighter escort, fleet air defence, suppression of enemy air defences, air interdiction, close air support, & aerial reconnaissance. Its versatility & reliability have proven it to be a valuable carrier asset.

The F/A-18 Hornet first saw combat action during the 1986 United States bombing of Libya & subsequently participated in the 1991 Gulf war & 2003 Iraq war.
