Adrenalin.com.au - $790 off flying a jet fighter, plus $30 discount code....

Adrenalin - one of the places you can go to to get 'adventure/experience' gifts, are having a bit of a sale on a number of their 'experiences'. For example $790 off flying a jet fighter (was $1,990 now $1,200) and $100 off the driving a V8 racing car (was $495, now $395). Defensive driving course was $300 now $99... Jet boat rides from $29.... personally my brother gave me a ride in a tank this year - pretty funny, if dusty, experience.

If you have someone who is close to impossible to find a suitable chrissie present for, this might be an option! They send the voucher out in a nice metal box, or otherwise they can send it out via email to print out yourself (if you need it for christmas, that might be the best option at this point).

Note that some of the specials are limited as to which dates are available, plus (with things like the jet flight) you need to make sure whoever is going to do it fits within the age/height/weight/health restrictions. Also not sure how long the specials will last, but if you miss out there is currently a special $30 voucher 'QANTAS2011' - good to 31/1/2012. Don't know if you can combine 'em... <grin>

*UPDATE* Just noticed - with every postal order (util they run out), you apparently get a choce of either a Mission Impossible 3 DVD *or* a box of Belgian Chocolates.

Info about the jet flight (in Melbourne/Bendigo - they have other locations) follows:

Great flying area (spectators can see most of your flight)
Aerobatic instructor-rated pilot
Modern L-39 fighter jet (as seen in the James Bond film "Tomorrow Never Dies")

Your Mission, should you choose to accept it, is to embark on the most heart thumping, adrenalin filled Jet Fighter Strike Mission available. Live your Top Gun dream for a day in an L39 Albatros Lead in Fighter Jet in Melbourne. Feel the G-force and speed as your pilot performs aerobatic manoeuvres across the sky and simulates a strike attack.

In full military helmet and flight suit youll climb aboard the Fighter Jet. Once strapped in and secured in the cockpit you will be given the final brief. Feel the power as the jet engine spools up, complete the check-list and prepare to taxi down the runway for take off. Get yourself ready for launch as 4000 pounds of pure jet thrust propels you into the atmosphere. You will be blasting along at speeds of up to 910km per hour in the sleekest and most modern Jet Fighter conducting adventure flights in Australia.

Your Fighter Strike Mission will begin with a climb to the manoeuvring area up to 8000ft. You are the co-pilot with one to one communication with your pilot. The flight commences with a steep turn to introduce you to the feeling of positive G. Feel the amazing high performance of the L-39 Albatros Fighter Jet as the pilot flies you through the aileron roll, barrel roll, loop, 4 point hesitation roll, Cuban 8 and the vertical roll if you dare. Prepare to move into position for your strike attack - a positioning run at low level and high speed towards the enemy target with a simulated delivery of fire power and weaponry, finishing with a high speed getaway! Cruise back to the airport for a mission debrief.
