About the experience

Taking off from Compton Abbas in a vintage T6-Texan is one of the coolest experiences you can have in the sky. Nestled in Dorset, Compton Abbas is not just any airfield; it's one of the highest in the country and home to an impressive array of warbirds and modern aircraft. Now, let's talk about the star of the show: the Harvard T-6 Texan. This iconic plane goes by many names – the Mosquito, The Window Breaker, The Pilot Maker, and more. It's not just a plane; it's a time machine back to the 1940s, when it trained countless pilots for the United States Army Air Forces. When that Pratt and Whitney Wasp engine roars to life, you're instantly transported back in time. And guess what? This Dorset-based operator has several Harvards ready for you to experience this incredible journey. Don't miss out on this chance to fly into history – it's an opportunity you won't want to pass up!
