Overview

Enjoy a mind-blowing flight in the rear seat of a combat veteran MKIX Two-Seater Spitfire!

With a choice of 3 destinations, offering various flight lengths, and some incredible extras with each option, this experience is sure to satisfy your Spitfire desire.

The Weald of Kent flight is a 30-minute journey, with approximately 20 minutes spent airborne.

The Beachy Head flight is a 45-minute journey, with approximately 35 minutes spent airborne.

The White Cliffs of Dover flight is a 55-minute journey, with approximately 45 minutes spent airborne.

All 3 choices come with wonderful added extras. You’ll get access to the tremendous Biggin Hill Heritage Hangar for you and up to 4 guests, where you can enjoy a Q&A session with the hangar team and see aircraft being expertly restored.

For your flight, you’ll be kitted out with a helmet, a flight suit and a parachute. During your flight, at the pilot’s discretion, you’ll be able to briefly take the main controls. There will be the opportunity to experience victory rolls and other fun manoeuvres (once you’ve handed the controls back!)

Really get in the groove, with radio commentary from your pilot, the good folk at air traffic control and the trusty ground crew. You’ll receive an in-flight recording to take home, on an SD card or USB stick. After your de-brief, there will be opportunities to take photographs with the aircraft, and you’ll receive a framed souvenir flight certificate, a fighter suit patch and some pilot notes to take home and keep forever.

Which iconic flight will you choose? Covering the same airways as so many brave fighter pilots that have come before, really is a true once in a lifetime experience. When it comes to Spitfires and warbirds, this unbeatable day out is the absolute pinnacle!
