Your experience starts with a pre-flight briefing for your trip to Cambridge, Ely & Newmarket. Taking off from Duxford, the Dragon Rapide flies north at 1500 feet giving you the finest possible views over the local countryside.

Then you will fly on to the mighty Romanesque Cathedral at Ely and the famous racetrack at Newmarket.
