When Will I Get My Video?
Video is available for an additional fee.
Our Videography department does their very best to edit
and format your video within 72 hours, but we ask that you
give Sky Combat Ace a week, particularly in the busy season.
If it has been more than a week, please contact David at
or call 702-631-0386, extension 501.
Can I Log My Flight Time?
All of our fighter pilots and aerobatic instructors are
also certified FAA flight instructors and they would be
happy to endorse your logbooks.
What Do You Mean, "You Fly the Plane"?
"You Fly the Plane" is one of our tag lines and it means
exactly what it says. YOU fly the plane. Our expert instructor
pilots are specially trained to teach others how to do this
type of flying. All of our maneuvers are conducted at twice
the minimum FAA required altitude, which means whatever
flight condition you inadvertently get into, we have plenty
of altitude to recover from. All of our instructors have
gone through a rigorous training program and have seen every
kind of unusual attitude and aggravated spin that you can
imagine. Our training puts us in situations that are far
more severe that anything that can happen on a typical customer
mission, because that is how we ensure that SCA retains
its perfect safety record.
Can I Bring Friends & Family?
Absolutely! If there is space available on our vans and
shuttles, then guests are welcome. To ensure transportation
availability, we recommend you call SCA 24 hours in advance
to make sure we have space available for your guests. Unfortunately,
we cannot guarantee shuttle availability.
You may also want to consider our "Spectator" package,
which is perfect for friends and family that want to watch
the action, but may not want to directly participate.
How Safe Is SCA?
Safety is the #1 priority at Sky Combat Ace. The Extra
330 is built of carbon fiber construction, which is 9 times
stronger than steel. It has zero prohibited maneuvers, which
is a testament to its strength and engineering. The T-6
Texan was completely rebuilt in 2007 and retrofitted with
the latest technological innovations to bring it up to modern
day standards. Of course, the Waco YMF-5C is built from
the orignial 1930's blueprints, but certified in 2001 as
a new aircraft.
Sky Combat Ace flies 7 days a week, 365 days a year and
has amassed a perfect safety record with zero accidents
or incidents. In large part, this a testament to the experience
and professionalism of the pilots and staff of SCA. All
of our pilots are chosen for their maturity, experience
and unique qualifications that make them the best in the
But don't take our word for it. SCA operates under a waiver
from the Federal Aviation Administration, which means that
the US government has looked at our procedures and, based
on our extensive experience, granted us a waiver to Federal
Aviation Regulations to perform formation aerobatics and
That said, flying in a high performance aircraft is inherently
risky, just as crossing a street can be dangerous. You should
know and accept the risks.
What Should I Eat Before My Flight?
It is a common misconception that you should fly on an
empty stomach. The truth is that you should adhere to your
normal habit patterns. While it may not be advisable to
eat a breakfast buffet just before your flight, you should
have something in your stomach, perhaps a light breakfast,
such as cereal or some fruit.
Will I Get Airsick?
At SCA, we do everything in our power to prevent people
from getting airsick. All of our profiles use a building
block approach, starting with basic maneuvers and working
our way up to more advanced profiles. At any point, we encourage
our customers to communicate their comfort level and we
are happy to take a break between maneuvers to give our
stomachs a chance to catch up.
We also encourage customers to do as much flying as possible
during the flight. The more you immerse yourself in the
experience, the less likely we are to get sick.
Incidentally, the most common cause of airsickness at SCA
is due to hangovers. We know Las Vegas is a crazy place,
but try to hit the sack early the day prior to your SCA
If you feel that you are susceptible to motion sickness,
we recommend a Dramamine tablet 1 to 2 hours before your
flight. Dramamine is available in our gift shop.
