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 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.
