My Air Combat USA experience was a surprise gift from my lovely wife. I am a private pilot with an instrument rating but I quickly learned that prior experience is completely unnecessary; my combat "opponent" had none. Flying my plane compared to the SF 260...More

Without question, this is a "bucket list" experience. From takeoff to landing, it is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Rocket's enthusiasm and passion for flying during the pre-flight briefing is apparent and infectious and you can hardly wait to get airborne. Once airborne, Reef's calm instruction and...More

Hi, just wondering what kind of facility they are running when they can not even give a refund of money that was taken last July 2016. Also they have a policy of 1 year after booking if you don't fly it expires .... so why where you allowed to wait 2 years? Something seems not right here. Just want our $2,500.00 us dollars back.

Just wondering when Mike Blackstone is going to stop making himself the victim and give people back the money he owes to them. You say in all your posts Mike that it is always a misunderstanding and you are truly sorry... not sorry enough to return the money that you have of ours. $2,500 US dollars that my husband gave to you last July 2016 and you keep saying you are going to give the money back but you don't. Maybe it is time to MAN UP and do the honest thing.
