Falcon Field (Air Museum); Fighter Combat International
During WW II Phoenix changed from a farming center into an industrial city with mass production of military supplies, which gave rise to the Williams and Falcon airfields in Mesa. For years, Falcon Field was home to the Champlin Fighter Museum, which contained a large number of planes from WW I, WW II, the Korean and Vietnam wars. Here we tour this impressive museum of fighter aircraft, which has now been moved to Seattle, Washington. Fighter Combat International - Fighter Combat International's air combat school provides the general public with the exciting opportunity of a lifetime to fly world-class competition aircraft with real military fighter pilots at the Williams Gateway Airport in Mesa. And the good news is, no flight experience is required. Participants soar over the Arizona desert at over 250 miles per hour and fly the aircraft under the guidance of a Fighter Combat instructor in real air combat maneuvers and after multiple air-combat engagements become actual "Top Gun" pilots.
