Unless you have Tom Cruise in your phone book you probably have not had the option of visiting Top Gun, or as they say in the USA the “Best of the Best” US Naval Aviators Weapons Development Training School. Our first visit was in May 2016 when just two of us had the opportunity to see the elite unit in action. Not ones to miss a trick like this when we had the chance to go again in September 2018, we jumped at the chance, this time taking six other friends. An invite rarely afforded to anyone outside of Nevada let alone outside of the USA.
If this were in the UK it would be so secret that it would be more difficult to find than an enthusiastic European. Not in the States. Not only is it not secret, it is openly boasted about, and why not.
These trips are incredibly difficult to arrange so we can only do them when we have fixed numbers, set in stone. And they really are very, very limited.
