What an experience we have for you here! Two different options, both giving you the ultimate in Spitfire days out.

Enjoy a magical day at the incredible IWM in Duxford, in what can only be described as Spitfire heaven. Choose from the deluxe 'Wing Commander' package and the super-deluxe 'Air Commodore' package.

Without further ado, let’s get into what the packages entail:

Wing Commander' Package

First of all, you’ll have an introduction and safety briefing. The main event of this package is of course flying wing to wing with the Mk1a Spitfire in a 1940s de Havilland Dragon Rapide – an unrivalled view of such a stunning fighter plane. Flight time in the Rapide is approximately 30 minutes, with the Spitfire flying alongside for approximately 15 minutes. Right after your flight, you’ll enjoy a champagne toast to celebrate.

Then it’s time to take a close-up ground view of the Spitfire and the Rapide, with the opportunity to photograph them both. You’ll pose for a professional photograph beside the spitfire and meet the pilots to find out more about these historic aircraft. After all that excitement you’ll be a little peckish, so it may be time to make use of your lunch voucher for lunch at The Workshop restaurant. Once you’re nice and replenished, why not take a look around the vast collection of historic and rare planes in the museum.

Air Commodore' Package

This is the super-deluxe version – Enjoy all of the aspects from the Wing Commander package, plus:

A private guided tour of the Battle of Britain exhibition. An exhilarating 20-minute flight in a Tiger Moth, with the opportunity to take the controls. A signed logbook style record of your special flights. Loan of a leather helmet, jacket and goggles for the day. A personalised DVD to take home of your Tiger Moth flight. Finally, you’ll receive a presentation pack including flight certificates, postcards and information on the aircraft, in a 1940's style folder.

Whichever option you choose, this is an amazing day, and a memory that will last forever!
