Remembering heroes with a vintage flying experience - News

  • Flydays.co.uk is offering a chance to take a seat in the cockpit of a de Havilland Tiger Moth
  • This comes on the 90th birthday of the Tiger Moth, the training aircraft used by the RAF before they took flight in the iconic Spitfires and Hurricanes
  • September also marks a number of key dates from The Battle of Britain

90 years on from the de Havilland Tiger Moth's maiden flight, Flydays.co.uk is offering the chance to take a seat in the cockpit of the planes which served as training aircraft for the heroic men of The Battle of Britain.

Fought over southern England from 10th July - 31st October 1940, the battle was a famous victory over the Luftwaffe, forcing Nazi Germany to abandon invasion plans of Britain.

A reminder of the valiantness of the country's military, the victory enabled allied forces to establish a base of operations in England to invade Normandy on D-Day in 1944.

Dan Jones, operations manager at FlyDays.co.uk says: "During these anniversary months of The Battle of Britain and the birthday of the Tiger Moth, it is a fitting time to experience her in action. Only when you take to the sky will you appreciate the skill and fortitude of the pilots who took them into combat over eighty years ago."

First flown in 1931, the Tiger Moth is the most famous training plane of all time. Featuring an open cockpit, soaring through the skies over English countryside in this two-seater aircraft will not only be a timely tribute, but also give you the chance to fully enjoy the thrill of flight.

Dan adds: "Having an open cockpit, it certainly is hats off for lift off when it comes to flying in the Tiger Moth. With the wind in your hair, the stuttering hum of the rotor blades and a roaring engine behind you, this is not an opportunity to let drift by."
