Fly with four-time NASA space shuttle commander, and all around good guy, Col. Charlie Precourt in an EAA award-winning L-39 Albatros jet. While this barn-burning jet ride
will not get you to outer space, you will be able to pull some serious g's, +6/-1, in this AirVenture Oshkosh 2012 Lindy Award-winning jet aircraft. Flying in this Czech-built, high-performance jet trainer should be on every aviation enthusiast's bucket list.
This adventure begins in Salt Lake City with a dinner hosted by the commander himself. During dinner, spend time talking about flying the space shuttle, military jet fighters, or just plain aviating.
You will be spending the night at the Grand America Hotel, located in the heart of Salt Lake. The next morning, attend ground school and then a preflight briefing just as they do at NASA. Then it's time to suit up and take to the sky for some low-level flying on the back side of the Wasatch Mountains along the Green River and then some high- flying aerobatics above the beautiful canyons and spires of southern Utah.
You will conclude this exciting adventure with a post-flight debriefing, GoPro footage from your flight, a personalized flight suit, an L-39 patch, a model of the aircraft, signed photos of you and the commander, and a lifetime of bragging rights.
Note: This experience is good for one person on a mutually agreeable date. Transportation to and from Salt Lake City, Utah, not included.
