Corporate Event Top Gun Flying Day

Corporate Top Gun Day

Repeatedly voted the UK's number one high adrenaline experience. A once in a lifetime opportunity.

Top Gun Day:  Voted the UK's number one high adrenaline experience over and over again.

A unique and unforgettable adventure for your group!

Ultimate High is the only company in Europe to offer the Top Gun experience in ex-military aircraft.  It is the opportunity of a lifetime for your guests to become "Top Gun" pilots for the day, and go head to head with their opponent. 

  • First, you are kitted out into flying suits and Top Gun name badges and receive a detailed flying and safety brief. Then you are matched into pairs.
  • Once in the aircraft, your ex-military instructors will demonstrate a formation take-off and close formation manoeuvering before teaching you how to fly aerobatics - yourself! 
  • Next, after you have flown some aerobatic manoeuvres to acclimatise you to the g-force, you will be introduced to tailchasing and air combat against your opponent - the sport of kings!  
  • Your guests will be amazed at how much they are able to take the controls themselves during this experience.

Flights take place in pairs, so 2 guests are airborne at any one time (in 2 separate aircraft).   The ideal group size is 8-16 guests. For groups smaller than this (4-6 guests) why not try our full-on Air Combat Programme?

For groups larger than this (17-30 people) some guests will need to fly our aerobatics profile instead (ie their flight won't include tailchasing/air combat).  In this case 4 guests can be airborne at any one time using 4 aircraft.

The uniqueness of the event makes this very much a shared experience, with guests yet to fly eager to quiz those who have flown, to compare notes and swap stories.  Clients find the flying all-consuming as this is a totally new (and amazing!) experience. We are renowned for our friendly but professional pilots and ground staff and guests are encouraged to spend plenty of time with our staff learning more about flying.
