Sub Built to Fly Like Underwater Airplane:
Flight Schools Train Undersea Pilots
The company best known for selling high-altitude fighter jet
flights now offers flights beneath the sea in the world's first
submersible to move like an airplane. Sarasota, Florida's Incredible
Adventures is joining Sub Aviator Systems, LLC of California to
offer flight training in the dual-controlled Super Aviator.

and self-rescue devices are standard equipment to ensure the safety

to $8650. Flight lessons will be offered in Hawaii in February.
Other international destinations will soon follow.
The SAS is available for much more than training deep sea explorers,
including research and film expeditions. Her speed, agility and
range make her a good choice for studying and filming the ocean's
