Non-enlisted Fighter Pilot

It’s too bad I’m not a wealthy man, because if I was, for Christmas this year, I’d be getting Matt, Eric, and myself all signed up for this: Hollywood Fighter Pilot. The Burbank, CA based production company Incredible Adventures has struck gold with the idea of letting the customer help write their own script, as well as choosing their own aero-acrobatics. For the “low, low price” of $2,950, they’ll drop you into the driver’s seat of a Aero L-39 along with a professional co-pilot and let you spend an hour performing 4,000 feet per minute climbs, and film the whole thing, giving you the raw footage at the end of the outing. You can even opt to pay an additional $350 to have the footage professionally edited and a soundtrack added.

OK, I’m off now to start a new savings account…

Edit: Oh, wow, they also have a MiGs over Moscow program…
