Previous Events: 2019

A real ‘Biggles’ experience with leather jacket, helmet and goggles.

Live the dream and experience the joys of flying in an open cockpit wartime training aircraft over the beautiful picturesque Cornish landscape. The aircraft you fly in has been lovingly restored to an extremely accurate standard and is flown by a very experienced pilot. On your flight you will wear a sheepskin flying jacket, leather flying helmet and goggles to help transport you back to those halcyon days of real flying. The sensational hour long aviation experience will include a walk round the aircraft with a talk on the WW2 training programme and half-an-hour in the air, when you can actually take the controls. Formation flying is also available so you can fly next to your friend or partner in another similar Tiger Moth. On your return to the airfield you will have the chance to take photos for your memory box and our Diner 31 cafe is at your service.

All this for only £275 for 30 mins, £490 for 60 mins, plus you will take away memories for a life time!

The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth is a 1930s biplane designed by Geoffrey de Havilland and built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and many other operators as a primary trainer aircraft. In addition to the type’s principal use for ab-initio training, the Second World War saw RAF Tiger Moth operating in other capacities, including maritime surveillance, defensive anti-invasion preparations, and even some aircraft that had been outfitted to function as armed light bombers.
