.Welcome

Have you ever wondered what it is like to just sit in a real combat jet, strap into an ejection seat and get that flush of excitement looking at all of the controls and feeling like your are in command?  Better yet, have you ever imagined what it would be like to actually fly in an active service combat jet with an experienced pilot?  One who will put the plane through it's Combat Paces, and actually let  YOU  fly the plane? 

Stop wondering! Now is your chance to do exactly that, with veteran pilot and airshow performer Allen "Attila" Smith.  Rely on Allen's skills and experience, and his high performance flying career to command your once-in-a-lifetime, Mach 0.9 Dream Flight.  Allen's many accomplishments include a civilian test pilot, flight instructor, contract military research & development pilot, U.S.A.F. Auxiliary (Civil Air Patrol) search-and-rescue (SAR) pilot, contract safety pilot and an instructor for the military, and being one of the very few FAA ACE rate pilots in the L-39, throughout the U.S.A.

So get ready for the adrenaline rush of your lifetime as you and "Atilla" put the L-39 Albatross through its paces.  Get ready to feel first hand what it is like to be the pilot of modern jet fighter.   Sign up today for your DREAM FLIGHT...!

 

Mission Objective

The main idea here, is for you to have fun, like never before. Nothing can do more to test your adrenaline production than a Mach 0.9 Dream Flight.  Have you ever gone ballistic?  I mean really ballistic!  Standby for that and a whole lot more.  And we always take every precaution to ensure your safety, so that you can fully enjoy the experience of a lifetime. And with you as our honorary Air Boss, each flight can be as docile or as aggressive as you would like, flying between 1 and 8 G’s.  You call the action.  

 

Our aerobatic Dream Flight averages 30 - 45 minutes with planned fuel stops.  However, at 1 to 8 times the force of gravity and 400+ mph, there is more than enough time to complete your well planned objectives.  So don't put it off any longer.  Act today and make sure that you don't miss an extremely rare opportunity to enjoy a once-in-a-lifetime, truly sensational experience that you and your family will remember for ever!

Targets of Interest and Opportunity

Your Dream Flight might just happen to coincide with a local aviation or airshow event.  Or perhaps, you may want to fly over your neighborhood, or on a photo pass over a favorite spot and so on.  We are open to such ideas, provided they are safe, reasonable and within your budget.   In most cases, extending a flight translates into additional expense to cover additional fuel costs and such.  But we'll do everything possible to keep costs down, and to enjoy the extra time with you, doing what we like best.   We will discuss your ideas before we take-off, as part of the mandatory pre-flight safety and emergency procedure briefing.  Among other things, this helps us accurately budget our fuel supply to coincide with the type of flying we will do: i.e.  aerobatics uses up fuel a lot faster than other types of flying.  It will be our pleasure to answer any questions that you might have concerning safety, comfort, objectives and otherwise.   

 

 

Pre-flight Briefing

 

On the day of your flight, we will conduct a preflight briefing (in a classroom) to fully explain each maneuver  in your customized flight plan.  As our guest, it adds a great deal to your comfort, safety, and fun when you fully understand and approve each objective and component in the flight plan, before we take off.  As your host, we must discuss safety and emergency procedures, and each objective.  As noted below, there will be no surprises.   As your captain, Allen does an excellent job of informing you of what to expect before executing a maneuver.  He does an equally fine job of asking you how you are doing during each maneuver.  Truly staying in touch with how you are enjoying and feeling during your Dream Flight.  You can't ask for more than that. 

 

 

In-Flight Operations

 

Both the guest and pilot have "Hot Mikes", which ensures instant and continuous communications at all times throughout the flight, without any buttons to find or push - - just talk normally.  This is for your safety, comfort and fun.  You will be informed of each maneuver before it begins, and there is always reasonable time between maneuvers to "unwind a little", while the pilot clears the area for traffic and sets up the next maneuver.  There are no surprises.  Your flight is also videotaped.  See details below.

 

In-Flight Changes

 

As with real missions, things can change once we are airborne.  You might want to extend or abbreviate your Dream Flight..   Or you may want to add, cancel or repeat a maneuver.  That will be up to you, your pilot. Your mission may also be affected by factors beyond our control, such as weather, Air Traffic Control, etc.  Your safety is always our priority.  And if your are not feeling 100% or have simply had enough, simply say "let's go home", or try the familiar combat jargon "knock-it-off", and we will immediately Return To Base ("RTB"). Allen can stop any maneuver at any point during the flying, should you suddenly feel the effects of 8 G's, flying inverted or weightlessness.  All you have to do is ask.  After all, it's your Dream Flight and you are in charge.   We depend heavily on your superior experience and positive referral to other future customers, so we want you to be 110% delighted with your flight and we will do everything possible to make that a reality.  

De-Briefing

 

Each flight is videotaped on an elaborate three camera cockpit system, which includes cockpit and radio comms.  We record forward, side and rear views from the cockpit, including voice comms between you and Allen.  See yourself do a 360 aileron turn, inverted flight and a whole lot more.  The entire flight is taped, from engine run-up to shut down.  Once edited, you will receive a tape, which you, your family, friends and clients can de-brief for a lifetime. View it at home, at the office or in your Boardroom. The experience and the tape are something truly to be envied, and viewing it is guaranteed to refresh your memory and the experience.  The final copy is available on either miniDV (digital), DVD  or a standard VHS format tape. 

 

Flight Surgeon Clearance

As with all military, general aviation and commercial flying, your captain has ultimate responsibility for the safety of you as the crew, the overall mission and the aircraft.  As such, Allen Smith and Astradyne, Inc. reserve the right to refuse or cancel service to anyone at any time.  Safety is always our number one concern and loyalty, both to those in the air, as well as those on the ground.   On that note, we ask that all of our guests sign a general liability waiver, attesting to their general good health and well-being, and exempting Allen H. Smith and Astradyne, Inc. from risks inherent of this type of activity.
