The Hot Shot Jet Mission is a 20 minute adventure flight in our L-39 Albatross.
Your experience commences with a mission and safety brief before being fitted with a flight suit and jet helmet.
Once securely strapped into your jet, we taxi out to line up for the ride of your life. Final take-off brief and then the power comes on, you are accelerated to 400 Km/h by the end of the airstrip and climb out to 10,000 feet to commence one of lifes great experiences
This mission includes a wide range of aerobatics including aileron and barrel rolls, hesitation rolls loops, inverted flight and derry roll, wing-overs and finally all put together for you to experience a jet display routine as performed at Air Shows all over Australia, by one of our elite fighter display Pilots.
With the traditional Jetfighter Grin and adrenalin pumping through your veins, you return to base for a jet fighter approach and landing. As you taxi in its hard to take it all in, but one thing is for sure it will have been the ride of your life.

About the L-39 C:
Our Aero Vodochody L-39 Albatross is a 1988 Model that has only flown 720 hours. This makes it the latest model, lowest time L-39 Jet in Australia. Simply the BEST !!!
It was built in Czechoslovakia and was assigned to the Ukraine Air force where it spent its life as the personal aircraft of the Commanding Officer. This was common practice in the former Soviet Union where Air Force Base Commanders were assigned their personal Jet, therefore it was not used for training and light attack duties. This is reflected in its stunning condition that goes well beyond a nice coat of paint. There is simply no substitute for quality and International Fighter Flight Centre (Jetfighter.com.au) has been an industry leader for over 14 years.
With a 100% safety record and 100% customer satisfaction guarantee this is another good reason to choose the proven industry leaders in Jet Adventure Flight Operations.
