A Night in the Woods
Auction Sneak Preview
Suit up with Air Combat USA to learn the tactical maneuvers needed in air-to-air combat. After a briefing, guest pilots are secured into the aircraft alongside their instructor for the hands-on portion of the program. Although the instructor will perform the take-off and the landing, guest pilots will fly the aircraft 90% of the time, while they practice maneuvers and engage in dogfights. Register a hit during a dogfight and smoke will trail from the other aircraft! The whole experience will be recorded by four onboard cockpit cameras and will be yours to keep.
Generously donated by Marcia Saunders and Air Combat USA.
