About the experience

Enjoy a front seat view in this unique flight in a 1930s De Havilland Tiger Moth aircraft over the Derbyshire countryside. Not only does this flight give you a unique experience of wartime Britain through the eyes of an aircraft that played a significant role in the Royal Air Force, but guaranteed spectacular views across the River Trent and the beautiful villages dotted around Burton. Although there will be an opportunity for you to take the controls, this flight is already pretty hands on already because of the way the vehicle is designed. This aircraft is a tandem trainer, meaning you will be in the front seat which will only elevate your views across the skies. You’ll really get a feel for how pilots were soaring through the skies of wartime Britain during this vintage flight as you’ll be kitted out with all the gear including a flying suit, jacket, helmet and goggles. You’ll be thankful for the eyewear as this is an open cockpit flight where you’ll feel the breeze on your face at all times. To take the experience that bit further to really mimic the 1930s, your pilot will even demonstrate some manoeuvres used by early fighter pilots that still have use today. This flight is ideal for the history buff who wants to get up close and personal with the past or anyone who is curious about aviation and wants to have a unique experience in a vintage aircraft.
