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.

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.
Overall rating: 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.
Overall rating: Excellent
