THE SKY IS THE LIMIT

SUPERSONIC JET TRIP

Take to the Skies and enjoy the ultimate adrenalin rush with an awesome ride in a supersonic combat jet. This once in a life-time adventure begins at the Cape Town International Airport where you will enjoy a pre-flight tour of the operational hanger. Here you will see and observe the sheer size and technical ingenuity of the incredible heavy metal fleet available. You will then be fitted with a flight suit and helmet and briefed on its oxygen and communication facilities before being taken through the pilot�s briefing room to meet your pilot and undergo emergency and ejector seat training. Then take to the sky and let the fun begin!

Take your pick from the following combat jets:

English Electric Lightning:

You don�t fly the Lightning like a conventional aeroplane � you strap her to your back and experience the thrust of the jet fighters. She�s a beauty, offering the incredible power and �g�s� of the supersonic jet interceptor. Soon after take-off, you go vertical very quickly, and as you are climbing to 50 000ft, you break the sound barrier and marvel at the smooth and gentle handling of this heavy metal jet. At the apex of the climb, you join the elite few who have seen the curvature of the earth from 50,000 feet.

BAe Buccaneer:

The last all-British strike jet bomber, the Buccaneer is a low level strike attack aircraft that was designed to fly extremely fast and extremely low. Take off and head out to sea at a speed of close to 650 miles per hour and just 50 feet above the water, your �g� limits and sortie profile are determined purely by your ability to handle them. Seated in the jet behind the pilot, you will be working with him to maximise your experience - whether it be an extreme adrenaline rush through the rugged Cape Swartland Mountains or a sortie along the dramatic Cape coast. This is one jet experience you�ll never forget.

Hawker Hunter:

The Hunter is the ideal aircraft for aerobatic sorties or simply fast and gentle trips around the magnificent Cape coastline and its winelands. If you chose an aggressive aerobatic jet sortie, you will pull loops, rolls, barrel rolls, inverted flight, vertical maneuvers and a host of other exhilarating maneuvers, you bound to come out of them feeling like you have lived the fighter pilot experience.
