1942 WW2 Aerobatic Fighter Experience
This is the real deal – nowhere else can you can experience flight in this classic fighter trainer in the Sydney area.
Step back in time and experience the exhilaration of high “G” aerobatics and combat manoeuvring in this genuine 1942 fighter pilot training aeroplane.
The aeroplane you will be flying in, the T6 Texan, was used by the United States Army Air Force during WW2 to train fighter pilots for frontline combat. Also known as the SNJ by the US Navy and the Harvard by the Commonwealth Air Forces, almost every Allied fighter pilot of the Second World War received their training in the T6.
Meticulously restored to pristine condition, our beautiful T6, “Miss Fire”, is just as she was when rolled out of the factory in 1942.
Before each flight you will receive a thorough briefing on the manoeuvres you will be performing and on all safety aspects of the flight.
Immediately after take-off you will feel the exhilaration from the power of the classic 600 horsepower Pratt & Whitney radial engine as it pulls you through the sky performing aerobatics such as the loop and the famous “victory roll” that is synonymous with fighter pilots of the Second World War.
