The Fontmell and Compton Abbas Airfield are joining together to bring you a brand new experience. Eat-Sleep-Fly is perfect for those who live a little further away or want to celebrate something special. The experience starts with a sumptuous 3-course dinner in The Fontmell’s restaurant followed by a relaxing nights sleep in one of their luxurious double rooms. Wake up to a lovely breakfast and then make your way up to Compton Abbas Airfield for a once in a lifetime flight in a 1935 Tiger Moth (for one person) over some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK. An experience like no other, the open cockpit of the Tiger Moth means you can feel the wind blowing through your hair at 2000ft, over some of the most beautiful countryside in the UK. A really special treat.

Compton is my favourite location away from my home airfield Exeter. Warm welcome every time and excellent facilities. I have my calendar proudly displayed in my office in Abu Dhabi and I look at the web cam every day and long to be back in UK. I work in UAE and can only fly my plane on a couple of weeks a year. Those rare trips always include Compton.
