223323World-renowned Vegas extreme adventure Sky Combat Ace (SCA) premieres its 2nd location in sunny San Diego, inviting thrill-seekers,

globetrotters and neighbors alike to grab the controls of high-performance stunt planes to experience aerial dogfights and wild aerobatic flights of non-stop spins, barrel rolls and loops high above the San Diegocoast.

On July 1st, Sky Combat Ace will debut its adrenaline-pumping aerobatic and aerial combat experiences in San Diego with its newest outpost located at Gillespie Field. Participants zip up their flight suits and choose their sky chariot—SCA’s Extra 330LC aerobatic stunt plane capable of pulling +/- 10 G’s; or turn back the clock and become a WWI barnstormer in SCA’s authentic Waco Classic open cockpit biplane. Guided by an expert SCA pilot, adrenaline junkies take the controls to live out their “Iceman” or “Maverick” fantasies for the ultimate interactive experience and the thrill ride of a lifetime that only SCA can provide.

SCA pilots-for-a-day will perform aerobatic maneuvers only seen in airshows over the Pacific Ocean with experiences like the Top Gun package; or take their best smack talk 6,000 feet over the San Diego coast while chasing adversaries through the Californiaskies at up to 250 mph with the justly-named Adrenaline Rush or the Sky Combat experience, where participants battle for air supremacy!


Sky Combat Ace pairs you up with actual fighter pilots to learn the art of basic fighter maneuvering. You can fly with just the fighter pilot or take on one of your friends and test your skills against an equally matched adversary. Under the supervision of SCA’s highly trained fighter pilot instructors, you are the one at the controls, you are the one squeezing the trigger and you get the satisfaction of scoring a hit on your opponent.

With packages starting at just $299, SCA San Diego delivers something for everyone with four types of experiences, whether for a first-time flight fanatic or seasoned adrenaline enthusiast:

  • Aerobatic Flights – Star in your very own air show! You fly the plane and become wingman to one of SCA’s professional fighter pilots as you perform thrilling stunts, such as loops, rolls, spins, hammerhead stalls, tail slides and tumbles.
  • Air Combat Packages – Reenact your favorite “Top Gun” moment as you chase your opponent through the sky like a real fighter pilot. Feel the thrill of “the kill” as you aim and shoot your adversary using SCA’s special effects. If your aim is good, you’ll get instantaneous feedback as smoke flows from your opponent’s plane. Fight’s on!
  • Extreme Sightseeing Tours – In an open-cockpit biplane fit for two (plus a pilot), enjoy aerial views of the San Diego coastline while flying within 500′ of landmarks such as the Coronado Bridge, Point Loma, downtown San Diego and the USS Midway Aircraft Carrier.
  • Combination Packages – If you want the best of all worlds, SCA will combine the most popular elements from all three flight profiles for a combination package that satisfies the most hardened adrenaline junkie!

SCA San Diego is open 10a.m. to 9 p.m. Thursday through Monday; for more information or to book your experience, visitwww.skycombatace.com or call 888-494-5850.
