Overview

Take a trip back in time, for the most adrenaline pumping history lesson you’ll have ever experienced. This incredible chance to fly in a vintage biplane, from a number of locations across the country, is both a once in a lifetime experience and also the most amazing of gifts for an upcoming special occasion.

You’ll fly in either a Stampe or Tiger Moth. Both biplanes are both wonderfully unique and are both very unusual to handle. Flying one of these beautiful machines is an art form, and an experience like no other.

You’ll be 'swinging the prop', among other excellent biplane phrases and procedures, to get these classics going and ready for take-off. Once the biplane is ready, it will be incredibly eager to get going, as will you and your pilot! This really is an exhilarating flight. Your pilot will demonstrate how to pilot the plane and will take you up to a great spot for you to take the controls and have a go yourself! Whilst biplanes are very much open to the elements, when inside the cockpit you’re actually very well shielded from the wind, so you can enjoy the benefits of open cockpit flying, without all of the bluster.

The pilots that are demonstrating these magical planes to you will jump at the chance to show off their skills. If you want to experience some exciting tricks and manoeuvres, just say the word and hold on tight!

A fantastic flight, with a fantastic pilot, in a fantastic biplane, at choice of one of England’s most fantastic venues to fly from.
