About the experience

Chocks away, chaps, as you get to take a retrospective flight like no other on a 30 Minute Flight in a stunning and fully restored vintage Biplane at a great selection of UK wide aerodromes and airfields! You’re sure to feel the same rush of excitement that RAF pilots in training felt whilst taking to the skies in the likes of a Stampe or Tiger Moth. The adrenaline builds as you get settled and strapped into your seat in the plane’s interior, and prepare for the almost theatrical ceremony that is ‘swinging the prop’. As you hear the command to ‘Switches off, fuel on, throttle closed, suck in' and ‘contact’ and hear the biplane engine rev up, you’ll be up over the grass runway and be airborne in no time at all. As you crane your neck out over the side of the fuselage, looking over the side of the propeller, there is very little that captures the same energy as flying in one of these much loved planes. And you’ll be surprised just how little breeze there is and what a great job the windscreen does of keeping it to a minimum. And once your pilot’s demonstrated how just a few gentle turns does a good job of helping it fly majestically over the sky, they may even demonstrate some of the more daring manoeuvres that it can pull off too - maybe even an aerobatic loop to bring this truly special vintage flight to a fine climax!
