Where will my Flight take place?
All flights take place from our Museum hangar based in London, Ontario, Canada, at London International Airport (CYXU)
When will my Flight take place?
First, we require that all Flying Memberships be paid for in full. When payment is complete, we will arrange a slot time for you on one of our Jet Blast days. Our flying season runs from late-April and into October. This is dependent on how co-operative Mother Nature is with us. So even though there may be a bit of a wait, we assure you, the experience will be worth every minute!
The full experience
Briefing, Flight & Hero Photo Shoot. Your ride starts with a briefing as a introduction to the jet aircraft systems and safety equipment. Your flight experience will last 30 minutes with 20 minutes of airborne time. The flight begins with the rumble of the jet engine start up a quick taxi out and then lift off and your flight is underway!
Operating at speeds up to 650km/hr and altitudes of up to 12,000ft you and your pilot will be at the controls of a beautiful historic jet aircraft. During your flight you will be able to perform low level passes, overhead breaks and feel the onset of the G’s as you are pressed into your seat.
After the flight it is time for pictures and a quick debrief with your pilot about the flight. You will be awarded your certificate, and take the chance to visit the museum’s store for memorabilia to remember your flight! An optional package for you to purchase includes a copy of the video of your flight.
We do have some limitations and restrictions so please take a moment to review them:
Weight and height restrictions are in effect due to the limiting size of the parachutes, seat straps and cockpit dimensions. The passenger weight limit is 250 lbs (113 kg)and height limited to a person no taller than 6′ 3″ (190 cm). All limitations are none negotiable unless a written deferral is obtained from the Director of Flights Operations prior to the flight. If the passenger has a history of recent or current medical conditions like heart complications a doctor’s note is required in order to clear you for the flight and said medical information provided to Jet Aircraft Museum Flight Operations ahead of time. The passenger must attend and pass a ground-school or briefing on the Canadair T-33 Silver Star or BAC Jet Provost T4 (depending on aircraft chosen for flight) that includes emergency egress training and verbal testing. They must also sign the Jet Aircraft Museum’s back-seat flight waiver in order to release the aircraft for flight. Pilots have the right to refuse any flight due to safety concerns. Even if that passenger/person has a current back/side seat endorsement.
We look forward to showing you the flight of a lifetime and should you have any further questions please don’t hesitate to contact Flight Operations.
