The vintage era of aviation in a De Havilland Tiger Moth
Get kitted out in a Biggles-style flight jacket
Feel the rush of the wind in the open cockpit
Take the controls and fly the plane yourself
Take to the sky in a lovingly-restored Tiger Moth, the quintessential English biplane. After a short pre-flight briefing, don a Biggles-style flying jacket before climbing into the cockpit of a vintage De Havilland Tiger Moth. Feel the rush of the wind from the open cockpit and enjoy spectacular views as your pilot puts the plane through a series of exciting manoeuvres (subject to weather conditions and at the pilot's discretion). During the flight, take the controls yourself and discover the sensation that has made generations of flyers fall in love with these lively little planes. Back on terra firma, receive a flight certificate to take home.
At least one weekend date a month through out the year.
Minimum age is 16. 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 centre (after 9am) on the day, for a weather check. If your flight is cancelled due to the weather, an alternative date can be arranged.
Lasts for around 30 minutes from chocks-off to chocks-on. Please arrive up to 15 minutes before the flight time to be kitted out and briefed. Allow for at least one hour on-site.
