Flying with your ex-military instructor you will learn how to fly like a fighter pilot in the T67 Firefly ex-military training aircraft. You start by flying a variety of aerobatic figures (taking the controls yourself!), starting off with gentle loops and rolls.  Other manoeuvres can include a loop, aileron roll, stall turn, barrel roll, Cuban 8, slow roll, vertical roll, Derry turn etc. You choose how far to push the boundaries and the flight is tailored to you; the trip is as wild, or mild, as you choose!
