RAF Coningsby Flying Experiences

Airfield's History

Originally established in 1941, RAF Coningsby began its illustrious journey as an RAF Bomber Command Station. However, come the swinging 1960s, it shifted gears to become a fighter station, welcoming the likes of the Phantom, Tornado, and now the formidable Typhoon. Adding to its prestige, in 1976, it became the cherished home of the world-renowned RAF Battle of Britain Memorial Flight.

Nestled snugly in Lincolnshire, RAF Coningsby proudly stands as one of two RAF Quick Reaction Alert (QRA) Stations, dedicated to safeguarding UK airspace. Hosting two frontline, combat-ready squadrons and serving as a pivotal training hub for Typhoon pilots, the base bustles with nearly 3000 dedicated workers, including service personnel, civil servants, and contractors. Under the steady command of Captain O'Grady since February 2024, and serving as the main base for five squadrons, RAF Coningsby unquestionably reigns supreme as a hub of aviation excellence!

An excellent fit for any aviation enthusiast is the RAF Memorial Flight Club Membership. With all profits supporting the club's projects, this membership offers a treasure trove of exciting benefits. The gift pack includes a monthly newsletter, exclusive access to a guided tour of the aircraft hangar at the BBMF Visitor Centre, and automatic entry into regular prize draws. By joining, you help keep the fleet at RAF Coningsby soaring and contribute to the preservation of their historic aircraft, which include six Spitfires, two Hurricanes, one Lancaster, one Dakota, and two Chipmunks.

Terms and Conditions for RAF Coningsby

Once you order a voucher, it will be dispatched by one of our agency partners by e-voucher or by post, depending on which you choose when you checkout.

Vouchers are valid until the expiry date shown on your Voucher (typically 10-12 months).

In most cases, once you activate your voucher you will be sent the instructions to redeem the voucher directly with the airfield or operator. Because flying experiences (other than simulators) can only take place in suitable/ safe weather conditions, you must be prepared to be flexible on your activity date. If the agent or operator cancels your experience date, they will inform you as soon as possible and do their very best to offer an alternative date or location. Once a specific date has been booked, you will automatically become bound by the terms and conditions that the individual operator may have. This does not affect your statutory rights.

Whilst every effort is made to ensure the descriptions contained on our products are a true reflection of the experience, these do not form part of a contract. If on contacting the operator you feel that the activity taking place no longer accurately represents the activity purchased, the relevant agent will exchange the voucher or refund the purchase price.

If you have any more questions about RAF Coningsby gift vouchers and experiences please contact us.
