We’ve all heard it before, right?
“I’m good at this simulator, so I could easily fly a real fighter jet!”
Instead of just rolling our eyes, what if we could actually put them to the test?
Mover Media and Etched Motion Productions have partnered with Victory Aviation to do just that. We’ll take people of various backgrounds (starting with gamers) and put them in real jets (after a little bit of instruction from our hosts, of course) and find out who America’s Next Top Dogfighter really is.
We’re creating a pilot episode of what will hopefully become a series taking people and letting them (safely) fight it out over the skies of Texas in our Marchetti S-211 aircraft.
Meet our hosts
Real Fighter Pilots
Mover and Gonky are experienced fighter pilots who will fly with our contestants to teach them the art of dogfighting.
Mover started his military flying career in the Air Force Reserve flying F-16s. After one thousand hours and a combat tour in Iraq, he transferred to the Navy Reserve flying F/A-18s. He later transferred back to the Air Force Reserve and is currently flying the T-38A as an adversary pilot. He also flies for a legacy U.S. Airline.
When he’s not flying, Mover is the host of the YouTube Channel “C.W. Lemoine” with over 300,000 subscribers. His show “Mondays with Mover” includes aviation breakdowns, interviews, and flight training videos. He is also the author of the SPECTRE SERIES and THE ALEX SHEPHERD SERIES
Gonky is a former Navy F/A-18 International Instructor Pilot. After leaving the Navy, he flew with the Malaysian Air Force as a Boeing Instructor Pilot. He later returned to the Navy Reserve where he met Mover flying Adversary F/A-18s in New Orleans. He has since transferred to the Air Force Reserve where he currently flies T-38As with Mover. He is also an Airbus A320 pilot.
When he’s not flying, Gonky runs a real estate business and is the host of “The Ready Room” on YouTube. His channel has over 16,000 subscribers and features military aviation videos and interviews.
