Fighter Jet Flight
With Miami Nice Tours you can fly a real fighter jet, even if you have never flown a plane on your own before. One experienced pilot will carefully prepare you for the flight, explain the instruments and finally take off with you. During the flight you will have the chance to fly the jet yourself and take control over the jet fighter aircraft. The flight consists of maneuvers like loops, rolls, Immelmann turns, and if possible you will experience spectacular low-passes just a few meters above ground and sub sonic speed.
Strong nerves, readiness to accept a certain amount of risk, and cool headedness distinguish fighter jet pilots around the world. In sunny Florida, you have the possibility to try these virtues on yourself - during a rapid flight with the L-39 Albatross. This aircraft, which is currently in service with many air forces around the world, is fully fuelled and ready for you, if you want to take the challenge to fly it.
Because of its advantages the Aero L-39 was used by Germanys Bundeswehr and before the reunification by East Germanys. In the United States you can experience yourself, what distinguishes this aircraft in a real mission: total maneuverability at every speed, and in every situation. It is not without reason, that the L-39 is still used for training and combat missions by many air forces.
To be able to analyze a situation in split seconds, pull the controls around and react with the highest speed - a flight in a jet fighter follows its own rules. It is for this reason that fighter pilots only call themselves professionals after many thousands of flight hours. You can rely on the pilots during your flights with the L 39 Albatross in Florida. Experience with your own body what G-forces maneuvers like Immelmann-turns, barrel rolls, or cuban eights create.
Take it as a compliment, when our pilots divert the controls of the L-39 Albatross to you after some time. And see for yourself what kind of total concentration it requires to tame the forces of the jet. Then you know exactly what you are capable of.
Tropical climate, American lifestyle and the home of the astronauts: Florida the Sunshine State is our base for your total flight enjoyment on the North American continent. A flight with a L-39 Albatross will certainly remain unforgotten in your memory, above land and sea your dream of flight can become true. And even more dreams are catered to here in Florida: Aurora Aerospace in Tampa Bay is the only civil astronaut training center worldwide. Even more entertainment for the whole family is offered at the near Disneyland park. A trip is worth it for young and old.
About the aircraft
The L-39 is a training aircraft that can also be used to engage ground targets. The L-39 distinguishes itself with good maneuverability and excellent visibility from both seats in the cockpit. Very good performance at sub sonic speeds make the L-39 jet the ideal aircraft to experience a cost effective flight on a real fighter aircraft.
Syria has a number of armed L-39ZA light attack variants. In 2012, during the Syrian Civil War, L-39s have been routinely deployed against rebel ground forces, a number of aircraft have been shot down by ground fire. They have been filmed in action during Battle of Aleppo, striking rebel-held positions.
While newer versions are now replacing older L-39s in service, thousands remain in active service as trainers, and many are finding new homes with private warbird owners all over the world. This is particularly evident in the United States, where their $200,000–$300,000 price puts them in range of moderately wealthy pilots looking for a fast, agile personal jet. Their popularity led to a purely L-39 Jet class at the Reno Air Races, though it has since been expanded to include other, similar aircraft.
In September 2012 there were 255 L-39s registered with the US Federal Aviation Administration and four registered with Transport Canada. Several display teams use the L-39 such as the Patriots Jet Team (6 L-39s), the Breitling Jet Team (7 L-39s) and the Black Diamond Jet Team (5 L-39s).
You can book with Miami Nice Tours also flights in Australia, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Spain and the USA. These L-39s are mostly in private hands, but some also belong to government agencies, such as those in Russia.
