Can't decide between flying, driving and sightseeing? Then try all three
A flying lesson in a Tiger Moth biplane
Drive an armoured personnel carrier on a military driving range
A sightseeing flight over Cambridge in a vintage Dragon Rapide
Includes lunch and a private tour of the Imperial War Museum Duxford
Can't decide between flying, driving and sightseeing? Try all three at the IWM Duxford. Begin with a briefing in the control tower, then don a flight jacket for a flying lesson in a genuine De Havilland Tiger Moth, the quintessential English biplane. Pose for a picture with the Tiger Moth, before hitting Duxford's military testing ground for a driving lesson in an armoured personnel carrier. After a buffet lunch back at the tower, let someone else do the driving on a flight over Cambridge in a De Havilland Dragon Rapide, enjoying unrivalled views over the Fens and the city. A short, private guided tour of Duxford's aircraft collection includes Spitfires, a B17 and the prototype Concorde. Finish with champagne and a certificate presentation.
Weekend dates approximately once a month between April and October.
Minimum age is 18 and maximum weight is 18 stone. As a guide if you can fit comfortably into a standard size car seat, you will be comfortable in the cockpit. Asthma sufferers may participate.
As the Tiger Moth is an open-cockpit plane, certain conditions might mean that the flight is rescheduled or some aerobatic movements aren't possible. Please call the venue (after 8.30am please) for a weather check before setting off.
The flight lasts about five and a half hours, including approximately 20 minutes in the Tiger Moth. Please arrive 45 minutes before the allotted start time, or call the venue if delayed.
