Flying in the East of England

Flight experiences in the East of England offer breathtaking views of cathedrals, National Trust sites, and miles of green countryside, all from a whole new perspective. These experiences are perfect for all ages and interests. If you're passionate about aviation history, we recommend one of our Vintage Flying Experiences. Soar over lush fields and ferns in a vintage Hurricane, perhaps alongside a Spitfire adorned in RAF livery, for a Wing-to-Wing experience. Alternatively, take a risk with a thrilling Aerobatic Flight from Dunstable Downs. For history buffs, try your hand at one of our state-of-the-art Flight Simulator Experiences, where you can 'fly' a Phantom, Spitfire, or even a Messerschmitt. Even take a visit to IWM Duxford for a trip to the wonderful Imperial War Museum!

Terms and Conditions for Sutton Meadows Airfield

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.
