About the experience

There’s just something magical about a vintage biplane that modern aircraft just can’t hold a candle to. And if you’ve ever dreamt about flying one, then this 15 minute taster flight will help you realise that little dream! Hosted at a wide selection of UK airfields, you’ll get to take flight in some faithfully restored vintage biplanes such as Stampes or Tiger Moths and experience the rush and euphoria of flying in an open cockpit. Strapped into your seat in the interior of the plane, as you get ready for the ‘swinging the prop’, you’ll definitely get caught in the excitement and dramatics as you hear the commands ‘Switches off, fuel on, throttle closed, suck in' and ‘contact’, as the biplane’s engine roars into life and you take off. And once you’re at level flight, you’ll discover that just the lightest amount of effort and gentle turns under the guidance of your pilot will help you fly gracefully above the airfield. You’ll definitely feel a bit like an RAF pilot of the 1930s or 1940s in training, hopefully just as enthusiastic as they were too - which will be gladly reciprocated as you get the chance to have some more exciting moves demonstrated for you!
