The 1930's Vintage Tiger Moth

Don an Irvin Flying Jacket & biggles goggles for a flight in our pristine WW2 bi-plane. With dual controls, you could have the opportunity to fly the aircraft yourself, over our Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty. Previously flown by George Clooney and Matt Damon! Our most popular Vintage aircraft. 

Available from March through to December inclusive. 

"Thank you all, especially the restaurant and Tiger Moth teams, for making our day so special and memorable yesterday. We have enjoyed coming up to the restaurant and to watch the flying for several years, but yesterday's experience, with my family around me, was unforgettable. We'll be back!"

​Michael Sumpster

Please contact the airfield on (01747) 811767 to purchase this experience.

What does the experience involve?
Start your day with an introduction to the ground crew and your pilot, in our Vintage Flight Room, all of whom are hugely experienced and passionate about what they do. You'll get kitted out in a flying suit and biggles helmet (a good opportunity for photos!) and have a briefing which will include safety, the workings of the aircraft, and a discussion about how much hands on time you would like - as well as where you would like to fly. Once you have elegantly leaped in to the aircraft, your ground crew will swing the propeller in order to start the engine. After taxiing down to the threshold of the runway, you'll line up, and launch to the skies, all the more impressive due to our location 800ft above sea level. Depending on the duration of the flight you will be able to take control of the aircraft and fly over your chosen area. There is nothing quite like feeling the wind in your hair at 2000ft!! On touchdown you will receive a certificate and have the opportunity to purchase an in flight video of your experience.
