FlyDays.co.uk is proud to offer a range of fantastic flying experiences and, perhaps, none is more stylish than a vintage flying experience. So here we take a closer look at an aeroplane that has graced the skies of Britain for some 80 years, and the feeling of empowerment gained as you step into the cockpit of one of the UK's most iconic aircrafts.
Designed by Geoffrey de Havilland in the 1930s, the Tiger Moth is one of Britain’s oldest and most iconic aeroplanes. A biplane built with two fixed wings stacked on top of one another, it operated as a primary training aircraft by the Royal Air Force before World War II.
When the war began a few years later, the RAF Tiger Moth was used to gather intelligence including maritime surveillance and anti-invasion preparations, with some Tiger Moths even armed as light bombers.
There is something so incredibly magical about flying an aeroplane, but having the opportunity to be transported back to the 1930s and piloting one of the vehicles that pioneered British aviation is truly rare.
Vintage planes, such as the de Havilland Tiger Moth, offer a unique flying experience that can only be found in an aircraft of its time. The aeroplane is famed for simplistic handling and basic controls which makes it the perfect vehicle for pilot training at a beginner level.
