across the UK with
YOU in the cockpit!
This experience will last a total of approx. 35 minutes, with approx. 15 minutes spent in the air. (We don't compromise on your time in the air. When comparing us with others, check the small print and the time actually spent in the air.)
Imagine yourself in the first years of aviation and the thrill of a wartime fighter pilot taking his first training flight in this nostalgic aircraft.
Remember The English Patient? Remember Biggles? Then no doubt you will remember the Tiger Moth. Most Tiger Moths in Britain are privately owned so the chance of a spin in one is relatively rare. Donning the leather flying jacket, goggles and helmet ready for a flight of pure nostalgia, and its high above the bustle of modern life it is easy to imagine it is 1934 again.
The experience includes the loan of a leather jacket, helmet and goggles for a flying lesson in the Tiger Moth, with the chance to take the controls.
Entrance to the Imperial War Museum Duxford for the voucher holder is also included plus half price entry for accompanying friends and family.
Flights are available every day except Mondays from March to October. Not available on Duxford Airshow days.
Weight limit is 18 stone. Participant must be able to climb into cockpit of aircraft.
Spectators are welcome but must pay to enter the Imperial War museum in order to watch the flight (however they pay only half the usual entry fee).

Excellent. I am training for a PPL so it all made lots of sense! Absolutely revelational. Having been learning in a tin box with an engine (Cessna 152) I found open cockpit flying in the Moth took me back to my days of reading Biggles by torchlight under the covers after lights out! Flying on the struts myself in a steep banked turn was great stuff - try that in a tin box! I would dearly like to complete PPL on Moths but have taken up Microlighting as cheaper!
Overall rating: Excellent
A bit of a problem getting through on the telephone. But once through, actually arranging a date was good, although not enough flexiblity on dates. Aeroplane and building good. Had a very good experience.Cost of DVD was £45 this is very expencive.
Overall rating: Good
Booking was fine, first choice of available date was confirmed. The venue was well know to us, so no problems getting there. Finding the right building was easy after airport staff pointed it out. Toilets and catering all good. We arrived well in advance of flight time, so no rush. Staff were friendly and helpful. Equipment provided (including aircraft) all as expected. The briefing was indeed brief, but acceptable for the purpose. A super experience, I would have no hesitation in recommending it to like minded friends and family.
