The Complete Experience

We see them at air shows, or in the movies.

Military flight crew.

‘Mav’, ‘Goose’, ‘Ice’ ...

Impossibly young, vital, confident, easily accepting the adulation of we mortals, seemingly without a care.

It took each of them two and a half years of intense training to get there.

About 95% percent of those who commenced didn’t finish.

We marvel at their accoutrements; the flight suits, the G-suits, the helmets.

The sky is their playground, their workplace, their field of dreams and duty.

We devour the jets. 

So beautiful in their menace, so impractical for all things except their primal function.

We’ve formed Melbourne Jet Fighter with the aim of bringing, as far as practically possible, the journey and ethos of military high-performance aviation to those of us interested and enthralled by it.
