Your Mission Brief

For those that might be feeling a little bit of trepidation or perhaps you just want a taste of what the Extra 330 can do, the Operation Recon is a great way to test the water.

This profile includes the same maneuvers as the Explorer, but this time you get to do them in the world’s most advanced aerobatic stunt plane, the Extra 330!  This hair-raising experience includes a safety briefing, takeoff, plus a few basic aerobatic maneuvers such as the aileron roll, loop, barrel roll, and hammerhead. After the aerobatic introduction, you will get to experience a short low level through some beautiful mountains that surround the airport before you come back for a fighter pilot style landing.

Think of the Operation Recon as a roller coaster without the rails.  Just realize that much like a roller coaster, it is over pretty quickly.  Guaranteed to whet your appetite for more, the Operation Recon will ensure your next vacation will include a stop at Sky Combat Ace.

If you want to crank it up a notch, we recommend you check out the Afterburner profile, which includes a series of advanced aerobatic maneuvers that you can only do in an unlimited aircraft like the Extra 330!
