About the experience

Enrol in a Dambusters flight excursion to get some time flying low over Yorkshire's moors and reservoirs. These Dambusters flights depart from Teesside International Airport and provide you more than an hour of flight time so you can get a sense of the kind of flight training the Dambusters pilots had to go through. For these flying lessons, you won't be in a Lancaster Bomber but rather a contemporary two or four seater light aircraft, and the views are just as breathtaking. Those brave pilots had to practise flying without modern navigational aids at altitudes as low as 150 feet, well below radar detection level, a challenge, to put it mildly.
