my wife brought this flight for me as a xmas present. if you enjoy flying then this is a must do on your visit to Adelaide. the pilot was fantastic. my flight was in a Nanchang fighter the flight up the coast was amazing. the pilot ask if I wanted to experience some Gs' I said ok next thing we were banking to the right I said that was amazing so on the way back he banked to the left it was such a great feeling. I don't think I have stopped smiling the take off and landing was so smooth.you can purchase a copy of your flight on a usb stick highly recommend you do this. thank you to the office staff and pilot for making this happened.

This truly is an authentic thrill seeking trip into the aviation past. The plane was well maintained but original enhancing the experience. The aerobatics and g forces will put a huge smile on your dial. This is all executed by a confident, humble pilot Angus who obviously enjoys his job and more than happy to give the ride of a lifetime. Thanks to Sam (also a pilot) being the ground crew, support staff and general all rounder.

Well if you want one of the best experiences of a life time you have to try this. The personal that fly these war birds have such a passion, it show even before you get into the plane. This was bought as a gift and it would be the best gift ever given to me. I tell you the 30 min flight goes so fast its unbelievable, my flight in the CJ-6A Nanchang Fighter Trainer was the beach and city bomb run. It was so much fun The pilot asked if i wanted to experience some Gs so I said sure do, next thing we were banking left and wow I could not stop grinning it was amazing. As we returned back up the coast he banked right and again about 2-3Gs. You have to try this, its magic, just couldn't stop smiling when we landed. They also give you a film on a usb of the entire flight with all your expression on it priceless.

Great fun! I was in a 2 seater warbird (CJ-6A) with a clearly well trained and highly competent pilot (Wilco). We did Loops, Cuban 8's (full and half), Rolls (aileron & barrel) and Stall turns: first individually then in a combination. Throughout the flight Wilco kept in contact explaining each manoeuvre before we did it and talking through it during and ensuring I wasn't ever too sick to proceed. I'm prone to travel sickness but was never too nauseous thanks to Wilco's smooth flying. Despite being nervous at the start I never felt unsafe and was often thrilled. The 30 minute flight went by fast but was probably all I could cope with. All the staff were friendly and polite and the whole process went without a hitch. Family was on hand at the airport for photos. There are 2 planes so some formation flying is possible (a thought for the future with the wife...) Definitely worth doing!
