    This authentic military flight simulation center provides civilians the opportunity to pilot a fighter jet in actual flight simulators. This is no video game!

    Climb aboard and settle into the ejection seat and you'll be amazed. The instrumentation, full immersion audio, throttle and joy stick combine to convince you you're flying a fighter jet for real.

    Take it to the edge. With seven networked simulators you can go solo, fly as a team or take the ultimate challenge and experience head-to-head air combat, also known as dogfighting.

    Your experience includes a pre-flight briefing and cockpit briefing to give you the instruction you need to survive in the cyber skies. You'll also get all the mission support you need from our staff in the control tower

    The flight is simulated, but the experience is real! This is a flight you and your friends will never forget!

    How many people can fly at once?
    There are currently 9 F-16 cockpits that are networked by computer. Like the actual F-16, each cockpit has room for only one pilot.
    Do the simulators move?
    Like most military simulators, ours are stationary.  There isn't an easy way to replicate the G forces a pilot pulls during a typical mission, so the experience is entirely visual and audio. 
    Will I get motion sickness?
    No, because the simulators themselves don't move and you have entire control of your jet the whole time, even the people who say, "I'll be the first to get sick" have a great time!

    The 20 minute instruction prior to take-off was hugely interesting and informing, but a bit overwhelming for a complete novice. I learned a healthy respect for military pilots in combat situations. I enjoyed the actual experience in the simulator beyond description. It was very convincing. I was totally engrossed in the moment for the entire time. Loved it. If I could put one of those simulators in my house, I'd probably never get out of it.
    Response from Cloud 9 Living
    Good Morning Mike! I hope you have had a fantastic week so far! I loved reading your review of the military flight simulator. By the sounds of it if I had one in my house I would always been in it as well! It sounds like you had a great time really trying your hand at those aerobatic combat missions. I do hope we see you again to try the second mission! Have a great weekend, Chelsea
    I was disappointed my simulator did not work properly. I was unable to see the projections of the flight to accurately participate. My son enjoyed his experience. My wife gave me this as a gift. We live in Oklahoma and she knew we would be in CA, so that I could use my Cloud 9 Living gift. I would have like to have participated more in this experience.
    My husband bought a package for both of us on my birthday. It was a beautiful day for the drive out for our F-16 flights. We had a great time. He beat me 5-3. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
    Booked the flight simulator as a surprise gift to my husband. He had an awesome time! Will definitely do it again.
    My grandson loved the entire experience and days later was still talking about it.
    Was a great time, everyone involved was very friendly and courteous. Was very pleased with the whole experience.
    Rated satisfaction a "7" for two reasons: 1) the flight simulator is limited to a large projection screen. The simulator "aircraft" is stationary, it does not move at all, so you don't get a true flying experience; 2) the "joystick" on my simulator malfunctioned half way through the experience, leaving me with no roll control to the right. They could not correct this during my "flight", but I noted they were replacing the joystick following my flight so that the next pilot would not have the same experience. Finally, the "instructors" did not offer any consideration for my aborted experience beyond an apology for the failure, but when I mentioned it to the service person at the front desk; she apologized for the problem and gave me a pass for a free flight. Very nice. Overall it was enjoyable "dog fighting" while it lasted. I'll be taking my three boys over the holidays as part of their Christmas gift.
    We had a great time in the simulator...my only recommendation would be if the instructor could "co-pilot" for more time than was they did...they responded when asked but did not interject / instruct as we flew--it was as though they put us in, gave instructions and sent us on our way. I think there could have been better instructing on how to find enemy aircraft--how to better read the radar, etc, it might make it a bit less overwhelming to the novice flyer like all of us. 3 of the 4 only had 1 kill and speaking for most of us, i would say it was because we could not locate enemy aircraft...we were more concerned with flying the bird and trying to make a connection with the radar and what we saw out the cockpit. The graphics and instrumentation good and we give a 8+ outta 10 for the overall experience. Would we do it again? Yes. thanks for the followup. Jim Alexander
