Experience the unique thrill of a breath-taking passenger flight in a Spitfire TR9 with this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity like no other. Originally used by the RAF to train Second World War pilots, there are just eight of these stunning two-seater aircraft left operational in the world. Hear the Rolls-Royce Merlin engine roar into life as you prepare to take to the skies for a 20-minute round trip over the coast of the English Channel, the location of many historic airborne moments. Witness the Spitfire's famous elliptical wing passing over England's green and pleasant land and marvel at the power, manoeuvrability and grace of this iconic aircraft which is now over 70 years old. This is an exceptional chance to enjoy a truly unforgettable high-flying experience.

In a Nutshell
  • Experience the thrill of a passenger flight in a Supermarine Spitfire
  • Enjoy a sightseeing flight, aerobatics, or a bit of both

A fantastic hands on flight including aerobatics. The Spitfire ground team team makes sure that all visitors, not just those lucky enough to fly, are involved in this great experience.

A once-in-a-lifetime experience - so good I've done it twice
Flying a Spitfire is the most exciting thing I've done. It's extremely well organised. A very professional and friendly team makes sure you are well looked after and not only get to fly the Spitfire but can, if you want, enjoy a full range of aerobatics. It will be a long time before I stop boasting about it.
