30 Minute Tiger Moth Flying Lesson

Product Description
Nothing compares with flying over the beautiful English countryside in an original Tiger Moth biplane!

What's more, you'll be kitted out with authentic goggles and a flying jacket! It could be a summer's day in 1932 as you enjoy this perfect blend of fun and nostalgia. 

It's a great feeling being in the air in a Tiger Moth - the cockpit is open so you can feel the wind and hear the rush of air flowing past you!

Your adventure begins with a pre-flight briefing to familiarise yourself with the controls of this historic aircraft. Seated behind your instructor, you taxi out to the runway and then take to the skies for a flight of pure nostalgia. 

During the flight you'll have the chance to take the controls; cruising at a speed of around 80 knots (just over 80 miles per hour) you'll have a fantastic view of the hedgerows, trees, people, their houses and cars.

And if you choose to fly from Duxford, you will get free entry into IWM Duxford (worth £16) whilst your guests get entry at half price.

Duration & Group Size

Your flight will last around 30 minutes but you'll be at the activity centre for around 1 hour.

It's just you and the instructor but you're welcome to bring family and friends along to watch you take to the sky.
