This is the real thing, Top Gun for anyone.
Air to air combat flights are like a joy flight on steroids. Anyone can do it. There is one pilot and one passenger per aircraft, and both aircraft fly together as a formation until in the combat area. Here they split up and begin dogfighting manoeuvres that will have you grinning for days!
The only simulation is the fact that we can't carry live ammunition, so you'll have to use your imagination for when you get a 'kill'!
You will be part of the crew as you keep your eyes peeled for the bogey on your 6 o'clock. Experience high G force combat manoeuvring as you shake off the aggressor and try to get on his tail, weaving through the clouds high above Port Phillip Bay, Melbourne.
Combat Flights operate from Moorabbin and Barwon Heads Airports in Melbourne. Both locations offer spectacular beach views. Combat Flight events are held approximately once per month.

Sounds risky?! We have a 100% perfect safety record, our pilots are highly trained and experienced in this specific flight discipline.
Combat Flights take you and a friend or foe 5,000ft above Melbourne in real ex-military fighter aircraft. Loop, zoom and attack your foe in identical aircraft until smoke plumes out and you have a kill!
The ultimate aerial adventure, Combat Flights are more adrenalin pumping than any jet plane ride, this is combat, what all military pilots are trained for and truly relish. Two on two, real fast, for real.
Growing up on a farm in Tasmania, Anatole soon decided flying was more fun than chasing cattle and traded in the Blundstones to begin a flying career.
With over 3,000 aerobatic sorties under his belt, Anatole has seen Melbourne as much upside down as right way up. He also flies biplanes and charter for Adventure Flight Co and surfers with King Island Surf Safaris.
A third generation pilot, grandfather Ernest Mills learned to fly in an autogyro in the 1930s and it was in his father's bush planes that Anatole got the flying bug.
Matt joined the RAAF from school and gained 14 years experience flying Hercules transport aircraft, Boeing 707 VIP tankers and instructing on the Pilatus PC-9 as flown by the Roulettes.
Now an airline captain for over 12 years and currently flying for China Southern on the Airbus 330, Matt will use his 18 000 hours flight experience to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable flight with Combat Flights Melbourne.
