Enjoy an aerial adventure in a De Havilland Tiger Moth
Get a unique perspective from the open cockpit
Take over the controls and become honorary pilot
Experience the true pleasure and freedom of aviation with a sensational flight in a genuine Tiger Moth. Kick off with a pre-flight briefing, before donning a flight jacket and clambering into the cockpit of this incredible vintage aircraft. The Tiger Moth is the quintessential English biplane, and these particular models have all been lovingly restored. Once airborne, enjoy superb views from the open cockpit and feel a pure rush as an instructor puts the plane through a series of daring manoeuvres. Subject to weather conditions and at the pilot's discretion - during the flight, get a chance to take over the controls and become an honorary pilot. Receive a flight certificate as a memento of the day.
Saturdays and occasional Sundays from April to October. We recommend booking several weeks in advance.
Minimum age is 12. Maximum weight 18 stone. Minimum height 4'11''. If you fit into a standard car seat you should be comfortable in the cockpit. Unsuitable for pregnant women or anyone unable to climb into the open cockpit.
Flying is weather dependent and it is crucial that you call the weather line (after 8.30am please) on the day of your flight. The Tiger Moth is an vintage open-cockpit plane and certain weather conditions may result in your flight being rescheduled.
Your flight will last for around 20 minutes from chocks-off to chocks-on. Please arrive a few minutes before your flight time to be kitted out and briefed. Allow for at least one hour on-site.
