Tiger Moth Flight Experience
Have your chance to experience the thrill of flying a real vintage bi-plane and feel the wind in your hair as you climb aboard an original 1930s de Havilland Tiger Moth.
Put on your leather flying jacket, helmet and goggles before walking up the wing of this classic British aviation icon where our ground crew will secure you into the front seat of this First World War primary trainer.
You will be instantly taken back in time with the simple yet efficient layout cockpit, the smell of the leather and the purr of the Gipsy Major engine… You can literally smell the history!
Seated in front of your instructor, you will taxi out to the runway and take off for a flight of pure nostalgia, during which you will even have the chance to take the controls and fly this elegant plane yourself.
‘Everybody who has ever flown in a Tiger Moth has fallen in love with it’ – Roald Dahl, Going Solo.
