Imagine the thrill of flying a real Fighter Jet Trainer! EBAS orientation/demo flights offer all the thrill of a true Top Gun experience with the safety margin and comfort of being with a REAL Eastern Bloc Fighter Pilot with over 6000 hours of flying experience. Steve Kalmar was not only a fighter pilot, but a fighter pilot INSTRUCTOR who taught new fighter pilots how to make these planes dance! Want to try your hand at the stick? The L-39 Albatross happens to be one of the easiest jets to fly and offers the classic “fighter pilot” view through the large clear canopies. Nothing makes jaws drop faster than talking about flying a Fighter Jet. With a current medical, you can log time and attain an L-39 type rating from an FAA approved check pilot.

Invite your family and friends to share in the excitement and once-in-a-lifetime experience of these exciting Demo Flights! A viewing area is located next to the runway where onlookers can take photographs of your take-off and landing.


What Pilots say about EBAS Demo Flights:

James P. flies a 172, but like most pilots, he wanted to feel the “fighter pilot” experience.

After a cockpit safety briefing, they hit the sky and here are his comments:

"I’ve done aerobatics in the past but I never imagined the G-forces would be so dramatic at higher speeds. It handled fantastic. Light on the stick and very responsive"

James P.

Dave Pierson
Ex-Air Force Pilot who currently flies a T-34 mentor.

"As a former US WWII military fighter pilot, I can tell you that feeling the thrust of the L-39 is something that I will never forget."

Former US Military Fighter Pilot




Joe Denk

“Thank you very much for the most incredible experience of my life! Until I considered buying one, I never thought in a million years taht I would fly a MIG fighter jet.  Of all the warbirds out there, the L-39 is definitely the most fun for the money.  You're the best Rocket Man!“




Ramona aka Skychick flies the L-39

“With adventure as my middle name, flying a military jet was a MUST on my To-Do list. Despite 20 years of flying, THAT was an epic experience which I’ll never forget!”

What NON-PILOTS say about EBAS Demo Flights

“I always wanted to fly in a really fast jet and decided that my 65th birthday was the perfect occasion! I thought I would be scared, but I loved it and always felt perfectly safe even when we were doing rolls and flying upside down! Thanks Steve for the thrill of a lifetime.”

-Anna F.

Anna's two daughters came down to photograph and congratulate their mom on a successful flight.  Anna's flight had been donated by EBAS to a local charity and her winning bid made both Anna, and her charity, VERY happy!

(Contact EBAS for information regarding charity flights.)


Flights are available by appointment 7 days a week.

Demo Flight Aircraft – The L-39 Albatross
