Air Combat USA anyone ever done it?

was at a fund raiser last night and bought a ticket. turns out i win, and the prize is a trip for me and a friend to pittsburg for this air combat usa thing. looks like they train you for a day, take you up in some prop planes and let you dog fight eachother. planes pop smoke when you lock on i guess. wondering if anyone has done it before to see what to expect. looks cool, here's a link to their site: www.aircombatusa.com

Haven't done it, but it's on my bucket list. You're pretty lucky to win it - 'free' lowers the bar pretty far! Let us know how it goes.

What?! Nobody wants to go? I'd be so disappointed. That can't be that far of a drive from Buffalo.

I could be your friend lol

I've read about this. Pretty cool stuff. Should be loads of fun. I have my pilot ticket so have always wanted to fly something like those planes. I have gotten stick time in some rare planes (including .1 hour lol yes .1 hour in a DC3) and it always something you remember. Have fun and enjoy every moment of it.
