Product review: Great. Father in Law really enjoyed his flight. by , 31 Mar 14 5/5 Excellent "It was easy to arrange the experience. I spoke to the operator straight away and booked the flight. We found the venue ok. Facilities were good, but the food and drinks a little costly. We did not feel that we were being rushed but the flight was brought forward. The briefing was very good and left me feeling confident. The experience itself was great. Would highly recommend it. We had plenty of opportunity to take photographs. In all we had a great time. "

Warbird experience
Fly a Warbird at Duxford (20 mins)
A rare chance to fly an American T6 Harvard, one of the few warbirds available for flights in this country - and you get to take the controls! Plus, the voucher includes FREE entry to Duxford's Imperial War Museum.

This experience will last a total of approx. 60 minutes, with approx. 20 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.)


Check availability. For later dates, schedules will not yet be available and so you should have a wide selection of dates to choose from when you come to book.

What's included

On entering Duxford you will be amazed by the hundreds of aircraft on display, and you will be flying one of them. Make your way down to the Control Tower to meet your instructor who will talk you through the flight experience. He will show you around the aircraft, instruct you on the effects of each control and give you a final safety briefing before you both climb up into this large, powerful machine. The instructor will perform the take-off then demonstrate in the air how the controls work - then it's your turn! The speed and power of the T6 Harvard will give you a truly memorable flight experience.

Harvard Flight

(Reviewed by Neil Murfitt 01/10/2014)

Issues sorting date due to telephone/IT problems but eventually sorted. Getting to venue and its facilities caused no problems, all very good. The staff and equipment were excellent. Briefing excellent. I did have a problem hearing the pilot on the intercom - partly because of the noisy plane, but it did make the first bit of the flight a bit difficult. The experience itself was brilliant - even the fact that the engine would not start and we sat in the cockpit for half an hour whilst we waited for an engineer! It all added to the overall experience: I would not have missed it for the world! Anna is an excellent pilot in all respects, including the chats we had whilst waiting for the engineer. Photo opportunities good.
