Fans can watch and fly the Air Hogs stunt plane in any location they choose online.

Air Hogs take to the skies with Google Street View

Spin Master’s Air Hogs flying vehicles brand is offering budding pilots the chance to fly a virtual Sky Stunt Air Hogs plane using Google Street View.

Fans can watch and fly the plane above their home, work or any location they choose by simply typing in an address.

Once fans have completed their training, they will be able to pull off stunts around the virtual globe and earn their virtual pilot’s license.

The licence can be printed out or shared online.

Shawn Chance, director of Air Hogs marketing, said: "As the leading brand in RC, Air Hogs has always been an early adopter of technology, both in our products and our marketing.

"We’re excited about our latest digital marketing initiative which will allow people to fly the new Sky Stunt R/C plane virtually anywhere in the world – in front of a world famous landmark or in front of their own house."
