WHEN CAN I FLY?
Starfighters Suborbital Flight Training is available year round. Sessions typically begin on Mondays. Please contact Incredible Adventures to confirm specific date availability.

Note: Training is conducted at a secured government facility and all participants must successfully pass a criminal background check and receive security clearance from NASA. A minimum of 45 days should to allowed for this process. The time may be less for US resident citizens.

WHO ARE THE PILOTS?
Starfighters aircrew are all veteran Instructor Pilots of the United States Navy and Air Force that have logged thousands of hours of flight time in the F-104 Starfighter, F-4 Phantom, F-14 Tomcat, F-15 Eagle and F-16 Viper.

IS THIS SAFE?
Definitely not! Flying high performance military aircraft is inherently risky and you could die. That said, the training flights conducted are all well within the flight capability of the F-104 and pilots. Starfighters Aerospace is subject to annual safety inspections by the Federal Aviation Administration and NASA to ensure aircraft and personnel operate to safest possible standards.

CAN I BRING SOMEONE WITH ME?
Certainly, as long as that person is at least 18 years of age. However, the person must obtain security clearance and there is an additional cost to cover your guest's transportation, tours, meals and such. Friends and family, both young and old, are welcome to tour the public areas of the Kennedy Space Center without clearance. (Admission fees apply.)

CAN I TAKE MY CAMERA?
Yes! We encourage participants and their guests to bring cameras, however some areas may be designated "off-limits" in terms of photo-taking. The Starfighters are equipped with high definition video systems to capture your flight.

DO I HAVE TO BE A PILOT?
No. Students will range from experienced fighter pilots to those who have never flown before. With two days of training under your belt you will be prepared for a flight in the fastest single-engine fighter ever built.

DO I HAVE TO BE SCHEDULED FOR A SUBORBITAL FLIGHT TO PARTICIPATE?
No. Starfighters Aerospace is not currently associated with any Suborbital Flight companies. Although your training will not take you to suborbital heights, you will leave better prepared for the physical and emotional demands of a suborbital flight.

WHAT ARE THE AGE AND HEALTH RESTRICTIONS?
One must be at least 18 years old and meet specific medical criteria. There will be a pre-training medical check before you are cleared for take off. (You have to prove that you have "The Right Stuff").

ARE THERE HEIGHT, WEIGHT OR OTHER RESTRICTIONS?
Maximum student height is six feet five inches (6'5") or one hundred and ninety-five centimeters (195cm). Maximum student weight is two hundred and sixty five pounds (265lbs) or one hundred and twenty kilograms (120kg). Minimum student weight is ninety pounds (90lbs) or forty one kilograms (41kg). Students must demonstrate adequate bodily strength to make a forty pound (40lb) or eighteen kilogram (18kg) pull on a scaled strength measuring device sufficient to safely operate the aircraft egress system. (Translation: you have to be strong enough to pull the ejection seat handles in case of an emergency).
