Vintage Tiger Moth Flying in Yorkshire 

Sorry, this product is no longer available.


Time to shout "Chocks away!" and embark on an unforgettable Tiger Moth adventure in the stunning landscapes of Yorkshire!

Imagine soaring through the skies of 'God's own country' in a vintage De Havilland Tiger Moth, departing from the delightful Breighton Airfield near Selby. This is your ticket to aviation bliss!

Now, let us tell you, dear aviation enthusiasts, flying in a Tiger Moth is an absolute must-do in your lifetime. It's not just a plane; it's an icon of aviation history and an absolute joy to fly in. It has an open cockpit, so expect a little wind in your hair and a touch of noise, but that's what makes it so charming. This is the real deal – proper aviation at its finest!

You see, the Tiger Moth is legendary as an RAF trainer, and the very Moth you'll be taking to the skies in from Breighton was born in 1939 for that exact purpose. With the serial number N9372, this Moth served with the RAF in Wiltshire, Warwickshire, and Cambridgeshire during the wartime years, shaping the skills of new pilots.

After its demobilization in 1953, N9372 traded in its military career for civilian life. It had a few owners along the way and has now made itself quite at home in the picturesque Yorkshire under the civil registration G-ANHK. Decked out in authentic RAF trainer colours, this DH-82A Moth is ready to whisk you away for 15, 30, or a glorious 60-minute flight above the scenic wonders of Selby and beyond.

But that's not all, my friends! Breighton Airfield is the bee's knees when it comes to flying bases. It has a storied past as an ex-RAF heavy bomber base and even moonlighted as a cold war nuclear missile launch site. These days, it's all about leisure and aviation, under private ownership, with a special focus on classic and vintage aircraft. History buffs and aviation enthusiasts, you're in for a treat!

The World War II ambiance is in full swing here. When you take flight, you'll be decked out in a flying suit, goggles, and a helmet, just like the aces of the past!

Don't miss out on this epic opportunity! Snag your voucher and secure your spot for a thrilling Tiger Moth flight from the historic Breighton Airfield in Yorkshire. Adventure awaits!
