ALL ABOUT THIS EXPERIENCE

20 Minute Flight in a Tiger Moth - Gloucester

Take to the skies in a De Havilland Tiger Moth and enjoy sensational views from the cockpit! Become honorary pilot during the flight and take home a special flight certificate! Great fun!

Take to the skies for a superb vintage flying day and take the controls of an authentic de Havilland Tiger Moth! With a qualified flying instructor sat right behind you, you'll be free to explore the skies and appreciate the stunning beauty of the picturesque countryside below ... from the open cockpit the sights are truly spectacular!

The Tiger Moth de Havilland DH82a is a 1930s biplane which allows you to appreciate the freedom of the skies offered by this wonderful aircraft. This is by far the most exciting of flying activities: experience the thrill of open cockpit flying and relive the golden era of aviation as you soar through the air. Stepping onto solid ground will never seem so disappointing as when you land - you will leave absolutely buzzing! Utterly exhilarating.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. 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.

AMAYZING

Very informal, helpful pre-flight chat. Then exciting take-off and flight. Worst part was that it is all over so quickly!

It was a brilliant day, the staff were extremely friendly and helpful, and although we had quite along wait due to the volume of people, it was lovely listening to the old music and lazing in the deck chairs-with an added bonus of bubbly because of the time. I would certainly recommend this. Thank you again.

Will be doing it again...can't do better than that! & I'll have the discount!

A truly unforgettable experience. Paying a little extra, for aerobatics and taking control myself, was definately money well spent.

Although I was very nervous to start with, (Always been a reluctant air passenger) the instructor (Tizzy Hodson) soon put my mind at rest and I began enjoying the whole experience. Tizzy demonstrated a loop and roll which in all my life I would never have believed I would ever experience. Soon I was on a high and would have liked to carry on for hours. The experience of actually having "hands on" control will remain with me forever and I look forward to doing it again in the future.
