About the experience

Introducing the Thruxton Jackaroo, a magnificent bi-plane that is available for two-person flights. We are pleased to offer a 30 minute flight experience departing from Headcorn in Kent. Come and experience the joy of flying in this unique aircraft with a funny name! It's understandable if you've never heard of this plane since only 19 were ever constructed. The official name of the aircraft is DH82A (Mod) Jackaroo, and as the name suggests, it is essentially a modified De Havilland Tiger Moth. Currently, there is only one operational Jackaroo in the world. After the Second World War, there was a ban on various imported goods, including planes. As a result, with an abundance of Moth aircraft available, the idea of transforming them into four-seater cabin tourers was born, and this is how the Jackaroo came into existence. The Jackaroo is a type of aircraft that has dual-controls, similar to the original Tiger Moths. This means that one person can sit in tandem with the pilot and use the dual controls, while the other person can sit beside either the first person or the pilot. Flying in a four-seater aircraft like the Thruxton Jackaroo is a unique experience that you don't want to miss. This biplane is unlike any other, with an enclosed cockpit that provides a comfortable and enjoyable ride for up to four passengers. Its nimble performance and charming design make it a joy to fly, and it's perfect for any occasion. Book your experience now and discover the thrill of flying in a one-of-a-kind aircraft!
