No, but on June 4th at 3:15 Auroa Missouri I have chose and have my ticket for the Super Ace Package flight.

I'm going up with a coworker, at the same time. He is a 70 year old man that flew for the US Navy back in the 50's. I myself have never touched the controls of a real aircraft.

They told us we would be able to take off in tandem and then group for some formation, then peel off seperatly for for some areobatics.

Of course the real pilots are in the back seat for take off and landing and any other need that arises.

I'm real curious just how much the last 4 to 6 years of this simulation, game stuff is going to help me in this endevour.

Honestly Toad, in all my time behind a joystick I've just never learned why/how to control my puke?

Mmmmmm.... Airsickness.....

On a hot day, a small plane can feel as if God has a string attached to you and is yanking it up and down just to mess with you. Sweeeeet!! http://forums.ubi.com/images/smilies/16x16_smiley-tongue.gif

There is a much more familiar company in Orlando, FL. Was there and got the offer for a 1 hour dogfight for 400$, but I declined. I got a TrackIR and Cougar for the money http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

I did this last year out of Fitchburg, MA., and unless I'm a natural, I felt like flying sims on pc's helped out a great deal. I hadn't touched the controls of a plane in 30 years back when I was in high school, but before I was through with NATG, I had done a roll and a couple loops. Unfortunetly, I couldn't talk the pilot into a hammerhead, but it was more than worth the $400.00 my wife spent for this birthday present.

Hey Toad, buy a student pilot logbook first. . . and tell the pilot/instructor that you aim to start your flight training. Since the pilots at NATG are CFI's you can log this as dual instruction, and while it won't be much like primary training it will still count for total time, dual time,and of course high performance, complex, and tailwheel time. Logging all this will not only be kinda fun, it will add a bit more to the overall value of the session.

You will have a blast! The Texan is quite fun to fly!

Oh, Toad! I would love to be in your shoes on that day. Please buy your cockpit video afterward, convert it, and post it here! I promise not to make fun of you for getting shot down by the older guy.
