About the experience

Vintage aviation enthusiasts in and around Derbyshire and Staffordshire will be excited about our excellent 60 minute flight that's on offer, in a bonafide vintage Tiger Moth biplane from Derby Airfield in Egginton, ideally placed between Derby to the north east and Burton upon Trent to the south west. This family run airfield is also home to the Derby Aero Club, offering a lively and friendly atmosphere for keen aviators, with its three grass runways providing the perfect conditions for you to take off in this tail-dragged heritage plane with ease. Better still, the airfield is in unrestricted airspace, offering plenty of scope to really spread your wings as it were. In fact, you may want to pre-plan the route you take with your instructor pilot, whether it's towards Derby, up the River Trent or exploring some nearby villages and countryside from the air! Overall, there's little that beats flying in the open cockpit of the Tiger Moth with the wind in your hair as you take in flying from a truly nostalgic golden era. You're even welcome to bring friends and family along to watch you and make a day of it. All in all, it promises to be a day vintage flying fans will remember for years to come!
