About the experience

Jet back into aviation history with amazing Harvard Flights at Duxford! Based at the iconic Imperial War Museum Duxford, our family business has been restoring, maintaining, and flying classic aircraft since 1990. Now, you can experience the thrill of flying a historic Harvard aircraft! The background of our Harvard, registered as G-BKST and sporting authentic RAF training colours with the serial number KF729, is fascinating. While there’s no concrete proof that this particular Harvard served with the British Air Forces due to lost records, aviation historians believe it was built by the Canadian Car Factory in 1953. It likely flew with the USAF before serving with the Italian Air Force as MM53795. And now, it’s your turn to take the controls! The Harvard is a powerful trainer aircraft known for its aerobatic capabilities. Its distinctive appearance, with retractable undercarriage and a large, domed cockpit, makes it a standout in the skies. The tandem seating arrangement offers both pilot and co-pilot excellent all-around visibility. Your adventure begins with a thorough safety briefing on the ground, where your pilot will explain everything you need to know about the plane and the flight. After a full walk-around inspection, you’ll take to the skies. The pilot will demonstrate some of the Harvard’s impressive manoeuvres before handing the controls over to you. This incredible flight also includes free admission to the Imperial War Museum Duxford for the participant. Don’t miss out on this unique opportunity – book now and take to the skies!
