Top Gun
Aug 2021
My boyfriend and I experienced the top gun flight this past weekend. Wow, was it amazing!!! A check off our bucket list for sure! We were both a little nervous since we have never flown a plane before but both of our pilots made it fun and exciting while easing our fears. Its been a few days and I still think about it before I go to sleep at night. What an awesome experience with great staff.

If you feel like you are on the stage to get this experience or to know more about how it feels - you gotta try.
My GF was scared a little bit but after she came back she was so excited and wanted to try more. She felt good.

I felt a little bad after many maneuvers I did myself and almost black out. I disn’t feel good a few hours after that because it was my 2nd time in the airplane like that.

I definitely suggest to try it.

They will give you discount for next try 15%
Video cost $299 /person or $50 pict per person.

The coolest experience of my life
Jun 2021 • Solo
Actually being able to fly my self was so cool. There really is nothing like it. Flying this plan and doing rolls, spins, flips, and pulling 6.5 Gs was probably one of the coolest things I have done in my life. Thanks so much for the chance to experience that! Now I want to get my own plan and do it everyday. Just need a few extra bucks for that. Hahaha

THE ABSOLUTE BEST
Aug 2019
I would give them 50 stars if possible. This was one of the best experiences I have ever had. Sure I was a little nervous heading out there and even before performing my first maneuver. To be honest I wasn't sure it was going to work... I not only crushed the aerobatics but had a blast doing it. Tim my pilot was super helpful and made me feel at ease from the get go. And to echo what everyone else says.... get the video. Splurge and get the video. THANK YOU SCA

Great Experience

I had a great time flying with the crew in San Diego. From the moment I got there, everything was very professional and they looked after my wife and daughter while I was in the air. Definitely a once in a lifetime experience and I would highly recommend.

Exceeds Expectation... tailored for anyone from a thrill ride to a fun ride!!!
Jun 2019 • Solo
This is my second time with SCA, last time I did the Afterburner experience and this time my boyfriend did the Top Gun experience (like the afterburner but he was able to fly too!!). From start to finish they’ve been organized, flexible, and quickly responsive to any questions and providing updates. These guys have it dialed in!

We arrived early to the cafe and let SCA know. We were cool to just hang out till our pilot arrived but they contacted the pilot and he was able to meet us almost immediately to get the adventure started.

Tim, our pilot, was friendly, knowledgeable, and made us/my boyfriend feel safe and well prepared for the flight. He offered us options before the flight too which I how I learned about that flight and I upgraded on the spot (well done on the sales Tim) it was Ssooo worth it.

SCA was great that we got some great photos with the package. We fool some on the ground with our phones, but the SCA video and photos are great quality and will capture this awesome experience for years to come. (When I flew with SCA a couple years ago I passed on the video and regret it, especially after seeing my boyfriends video) The video is WORTH it folks!!!

So basically, if your thinking about doing this! Do it!!! There is a type of flight for everyone, casual sightseeing, adventure seeker, and those that wanna try to fly. Thank you SCA and I can’t wait to come back and fly again sometime!
