Chocks away! You're about to take a flight in a Tiger Moth - the quintessential English biplane. Absorb the magnificent views from the open cockpit as you fly over the rolling British countryside with the wind in your hair. You'll experience open cockpit flying and relive the golden era of aviation when flying was all about adventure, freedom and fun. Before soaring up to the skies with your expert instructor, your experience will start with a thorough brief,after which you will be issued with your authentic Tiger Moth flying gear including a jacket and helmet, and then the real fun will begin! Once you are up in the air and feeling confident, the instructor will hand over the controls and demonstrate the different flying techniques - and then then it's over to you! This is a wonderful experience that you will remember for the rest of your life - simply electrifying.

Your experience will start with a comprehensive briefing during which you will be issued with your flying jacket & helmet (and a white scarf  of course in some locations!). You will then take to the skies in the Tiger Moth. After the introductory briefing, you are kitted out like a real 1930’s Tiger Moth Pilot, then up, up and away.  Your instructor will show you how to fly the plane and then give you the chance to try it for yourself.  If you are feeling adventurous, there is even time to view the World turned upside-down in some aerobatic manoeuvres like a loop or a victory roll (but it’s not compulsory, you can stay right-side up all the time if you wish). All flights are with qualified flying instructors and are intended to be of an instructional as well as recreational nature. The flight also includes a pre-flight briefing which lasts about 15 minutes. This briefing goes through the basic controls of the aircraft which are demonstrated during the flight. After the flight the instructor will also de-brief their student and present them with their own 'Certificate of Flight' personalised with the instructors comments.

It was a fantastic experience, Tiger Airways have a passion for Aircraft and Flying. My husband was a spectator and enjoyed the day as much as I did. Also the Aviator pub restuarant at the Airport was a joy to visit, everyone on the day was so friendly and welcoming.

Bought for my mum's 80th birthday the whole experience was brilliant start to finish. What began for her as a bit of a daunting prospect quickly became something she seemed born to - confident, composed, comfortable - and in no small part down to the calming and easy-going nature of Tizi the chief pilot. Thanks to everyone. You made her day something very special to remember.

Made the whole family very welcome and gave me one of the best days of my life. Every one at the airfield could not not be more helpful and my instructor gave me a flight to remember. We even shoot down an enemy plane on the way back to the airfield (one of their on training planes) thanks again Andy C !!

Great Fun. The pilot was courteous and friendly and brought me home safely. I would love to have had flying lessons in one of these. If you are young do it now. Unfortunately I am 80.
