Compton Abbas Airfield on the Dorset/Wiltshire border is one of the greatest airfields in the UK, with stunning views and a superbly run aviation centre. This is your chance to take a passenger flight in the incredible De Havilland Chipmunk.
Now, you could say that the name is a bit of a mouthful, so to many this wonderful plane is known as ‘The Chippy’. The Chippy first came off the production line in 1952 and was intended as a replacement for the legendary Tiger Moth.
Mainly used as the standard primary trainer for the RAF, it was for many the first foray into flying for young pilots. If you ask ex-RAF pilots from that era, they’ll tell you that it’s a flying experience that they’ll never forgot.
Your journey will vary depending on the length of flight that you choose. For the 30-minute flight, you’ll fly over the local countryside. For the 45 Minute flight, the route will take you along the coast with spectacular views. For the 60-minute flight, you’ll get to view the Jurassic Coast and the Isle of Wight.
With so many options, which one will you choose? A magnificent gift for the aviation lovers in your life, and fans of vintage planes!
