This Father's Day, give your Dad a truly memorable experience at Air Combat Centre Sydney.

Located in Alexandria, Air Combat Centre is home to the only F/A-18 Super Hornet Simulator available to the public in Sydney.

This 'Top Gun' fighter pilot simulator experience is as close as you'll get to flying a real F/A-18F Super Hornet!

Upon arrival, you will be provided with a flight suit and an expert instructor will then brief you on your mission; dependent on your package, missions range from bomb ranges and targeting drones to air-to-air refuelling, fighting an aggressor and buzzing aircraft carriers.

Your instructor will be on hand throughout the duration of your flight (choose from 30 minutes or 60 minutes).

After the briefing, it's time to climb aboard the F/A-18F simulator and settle into the ejection seat; you'll be amazed at the realism of your F-18 Hornet simulator's cockpit.

Ever wondered what it is like to fly at 600kts, low level strapped into a jet fighter? The live instrumentation, working Heads Up Display and a full 180-degree wrap around screen all combine to convince you you're flying a Hornet for real: fly at the speed of sound, see the ground rush below and shoot to the stars in an Air to Air combat mission!

Feel the need for speed this Father's Day with Air Combat Centre Sydney. Special Father's Day rates are now available; call 0400 341 244 to make a booking.
