About the experience

It’s not everyday that you get the opportunity to board a flight in an aircraft that was first bult in 1943. With this unique vintage flight you’ll get up close and personal with aircraft history and turn back the clock as you are treated to the rumbling sounds of wartime Britain and the unique smell of hot oil as you glide through the skies. This North American T6 Harvard warbird is a special aircraft with a long history spanning from the United States Army Air Force, to a brief stint with the Haitian Air force before retiring to the UK in 1989. Nearly everybody ends up falling in love with this aircraft with its quirky design and ergonomic cockpit that you may have a chance to get to know first hand if you have a go at flying this plane for yourself. Everything is on the cards in this flight, depending on how you want to tailor your experience. If you wake up on the day feeling in an adventurous mood, why not request to experience some aerobatic manoeuvres from the pilot? After all, these aircrafts were initially used as training aircrafts back in the day and the expert instructors would love the chance to demonstrate just what these planes can do. For history lovers and adventure seekers, this is simply the ideal experience. With availability at two airfields in the South East and even boasting a museum on site for your perusing, it’s hard to resist this all encompassing vintage flight experience.
