About the experience

Step into the thrilling world of aviation history with a ride on one of the brilliant Harvard flights at Duxford! Nestled alongside the renowned Imperial War Museum, this family-run business has been meticulously restoring, maintaining and soaring through the skies in classic heritage aircraft since 1990. The Harvard you'll be flying in, registered as KF729 carries a fascinating backstory. While its original records mysteriously disappeared, historians believe it was crafted by the Canadian Car Factory in 1953, initially serving with the USAF before gracing the skies with the Italian Air Force as MM53795. Today, you can take the reins of this historic aircraft from Duxford in Cambridgeshire. These iconic warbirds were pivotal as trainer aircraft during the Second World War, shaping the skills of countless pilots. Recognisable by its retractable undercarriage and spacious, domed cockpit, the Harvard promises a unique flight experience. Your 30-minute adventure kicks off with a safety briefing on the ground, followed by an up-close walk around the aircraft. Once airborne, your pilot may showcase some of the Harvard's impressive manoeuvres before handing you the controls. Don't miss out on this incredible opportunity to immerse yourself in aviation history - Book now!
