YouTube videos take viewers on a trip
On the occasion of the long-awaited sequel to Top Gun, Swiss fighter expert Maverick MiGFlug took Roberto Chevalier on the flight of a lifetime. Roberto is the Italian voice of Tom Cruise and not only lends his voice to Maverick 30 years ago, but also his return to the screen in Italy.

Unlike actors, a voice actor usually doesn’t participate in action scenes on set… and in Roberto’s case – on a jet plane. But how could his voice take on the role of a fighter pilot with no real experience? That was solved with a flight available on YouTube.
Since MiGFlug’s special goal is to realize everyone’s dream of flying a jet, Roberto was offered a (launch) chair. Think of it as a method of acting in which an actor impersonates his character to encourage heartfelt performances…
Roberto took off in a dazzling 45-minute jet flight over the stunning backdrop of the Swiss Alps. He joined loops, rolls, and flies around the Matterhorn.
Roberto’s first flight resulted in a short documentary. The film is made with his voice, and is about a dream to finally catch the sky. Ironically, this time it was his voice that remained grounded as the whole experience left the actor speechless while in the air.
