Your Mission Brief
For those seeking the ultimate fighter pilot experience, this package is recommended only for seasoned adrenaline junkies. Break into "Blue Air" & "Red Air" teams for king-of-the-hill style aerial dogfighting.
Ideal for groups of 3 or more people, OPERATION RED FLAG is our newest package and is without a doubt, the most advanced air combat simulation in the world. Customers are divided into “Blue Air” verses “Red Air” teams and go head-to-head to see who will reign supreme in the skies over Las Vegas. The “Blue Air” team will be tasked to protect a “High Value Target” (HVT) and the the “Red Air” team will try to sneak past the “Blue Air” to put bombs on target. As the “Blue Air” orbits in a combat air patrol (CAP) over the HVT, an air-to-air war will surely ensue as you experience what is called a “live vul time”, where the war is constantly evolving. Since you won’t know where the enemy is coming from, participants will need to scan high and low to try and detect enemy aircraft before they roll in at your six o’clock!
Participants will engage in the most challenging of missions, Air Combat Maneuvering (ACM), where there are no breaks between engagements, rather the winner stays and the loser pays in a “King of the Hill” type of scenario. Just like the Sky Combat Experience, YOU fly the plane as your instructor pilot guides you to the merge! The best part is all engagements are scored, so that the results are rank ordered to find out who is truly the Best of the Best!
After you have gotten your fill of air-to-air supremacy, try your hand at advanced aerobatics, including hammerheads, tail slides, spins and lomcevaks. The ultimate in cooperative aerial dogfighting, OPERATION RED FLAG is guaranteed to satisfy the most hardened adrenaline junkies on the planet!

I booked for 4. My wife and 2 sons. 9 and 11. I wanted to give everyone a memory they could hold onto for life.
I was a little concerned that it might be more than they could handle. The pilots assured me they would check with them and make sure they didn’t get more than they could handle. The two boys had “0” issues and came back delighted. I was stoked. I went up next and Wow! It was incredible, so much more than I imagined. Pilots were awesome all the way!
They exceeded what I thought was possible to do and walk away to write about
It was intense… if you are timid, stay on the ground…
This was the most amazing experience I’ve ever had. Having the ability to control an airplane, let alone do aileron rolls, barrel rolls, loops, etc. all under my control was the best. Granted Thumper had my back. Thanks again, guys.. That was truly crazy fun!!!!View more on Tripadvisor
I went to sky combat ace because one of the things on my bucket list was to fly upside down just once. This was so much more. I thought this was going to be a once in a lifetime event, but I can’t wait to go back next year for our annual trip to vegas. Don’t wait too long to go because time is the one thing we can’t buy more of.View more on Tripadvisor
“Incredible – a must do if you have ever dreamed of flying.”
I cannot speak highly enough of the total professionalism, friendliness, comfort and fun provided by all the staff. From being picked up at the hotel all the way through, each member of the staff, driver, photographers, and of course the pilots – TOP SHELF!View more on Tripadvisor
Very professional! Amazing time! Found Sky combat Ace on line, sent my boyfriend, he’s been 3 times! Twice for the Top Gun Experience and we went up together for a tour! If you love planes and are looking for a thrill ride this is a must! Totally worth the $! Must try at least once!View more on Tripadvisor

The staff and pilots are real professional, informative and give you everything you pay for. My friend and I went with the Top Gun package and we got the flight of our life!! Our pilots Diesel and Tex were awesome and gave us an experience in a plane that we will never forget. And thanks to the photographer and video guys we can show it off to our friends and family. Thank you Sky Combat Ace for an adrenaline rush that tops it all!!View more on Tripadvisor
This was an amazing experience. I can’t say enough good things about this fantastic trip. I booked the “Afterburner” for my husband on his 40th birthday. My husband, his cousin, and I, all went at the same time. They flew us side by side and we could watch each other take turns through the crazy maneuvers. The pilots were friendly, professional, experienced and really put me at ease.View more on Tripadvisor
My husband and I treated ourselves to a stunt-plane joyride prior to starting new jobs, and we do not regret it one bit! The staff and pilots were very helpful and knowledgeable. We felt like we were in good hands as we wheeled and soared through the air. We even got a video of the experience as a permanent memento of our day!View more on Tripadvisor
“BEST. DECISION. EVER.”
Best experience in Vegas and definitely one of the best experiences of my life. I flew with Diesel, who is a real crazy man in the air. Awesome time, awesome people, and awesome memories.View more on Tripadvisor
