Stunt Plane Adventure Attraction to Debut at Gillespie Field

Nevada-based Sky Combat Ace plans a July 1 opening for the second location of its adventure attraction that lets customers ride high-performance stunt planes, set to debut at Gillespie Field in El Cajon.

A company statement said the attraction, which currently operates at Henderson Executive Airport near Las Vegas, lets thrill-seekers take the controls of high-performance stunt planes, assisted by experienced pilots. Customers can ride SCA’s Extra 330LC stunt plane that can reach a gravitational force of around 10, or an open-cockpit biplane built in the style of a World War I-era barnstormer.

The experience includes “aerial dogfights and wild aerobatic flights” with spins, barrel rolls and loops. Pricing and other information is at skycombatace.com.

Company officials said Sky Combat Ace provides civilian aerial combat and aerobatic training at its two locations. Services from Gillespie Field also will include sightseeing tours of the San Diego coastline and combination packages with adventure and sight-seeing elements
