Recreate a vintage era of aviation in a Stampe SV4
Don a Biggles-style flight jacket
Enjoy breathtaking views
Take the reins during the flight
Experience the pleasure of classic aviation with a flight aboard a vintage 1930's Stampe SV4 - a Belgian version of the celebrated English Tiger Moth. After receiving a pre-flight briefing from a qualified instructor, hop into the cockpit ready for take-off. Once airborne, admire the sensational views unfolding below as the pilot pushes the craft to its limit (subject to weather conditions and at the pilot's discretion). During the flight, take over the Stampe's controls to experience the rush of flying one of these incredible planes first-hand. Conclude with the presentation of a flight certificate.
Seven days a week throughout the year. Please allow several weeks notice when booking, particularly during the most popular summer months.
Minimum age 16 and max girth 40''. Minimum height 4'11''. If you fit into a standard car seat you should be comfortable in the cockpit. Pregnant women, anyone who has suffered a neck, back or shoulder injury or is unable to climb aboard unaided cant fly.
Flying is weather dependent and it is crucial that you call the weather line (after 7.30am please) on the day of your flight. The Stampe is an vintage open-cockpit plane and certain weather conditions may result in your flight being rescheduled.
Expect to be on-site for at least an hour and your flight will last for 20 minutes (from chocks-off to chocks-on). Please arrive a few minutes before your flight time to be kitted out and briefed.
Numbers on the Day
Your briefing may be shared, but only you and your qualified pilot will be in the aircraft during your flight.
Spectators (including well behaved, supervised children and pets) are welcome. There is an airport restaurant which guests are welcome to use. A camera (not permitted when airborne) and a pair of binoculars will come in handy.
Stampes have open cockpits, so wrap up warm. Wear soft-soled shoes, bring sunglasses and tie back long hair. Flying kit (jacket, headset and helmet) will be provided.
This vintage aircraft is scrupulously maintained and serviced to ensure your safety.
