Jump into the open cockpit of a vintage tiger moth and fly off into a bygone era complete with authentic flying jacket, goggles, helmet and scarf. Enjoy uninterrupted views of Bribie Island before flying over the majestic Glass House Mountains in stunning South-East Queensland!

On the day of your flight, you'll be met at the airfield by your highly experienced tiger moth pilot. To begin your experience, you will receive a pre-flight briefing in which you will learn about the aeroplane and its history. Next is a safety briefing where you will learn how to get in and out of the aircraft, what to do whilst flying and how to communicate using the historical hand signals and finally a route briefing to explain where you will be flying on the day and what to look out for.

You will then be outfitted in the authentic flying gear of a Tiger Moth passenger including flying jacket, goggles, helmet and scarf – now is a great opportunity for photos to be taken with the plane on the ground.

After waving goodbye to any family or friends, we will then buckle up and prepare for take-off. Climbing to an altitude of 2000ft and soaring as low as 500ft you will now get the opportunity to fly in an open cockpit. Scenic highlights include the spectacular Bribie Island and its national park surrounds before flying over the majestic Glass House Mountains. You are free to take as many photos as you like whilst enjoying this amazing experience.

This scenic flight is for pure enjoyment and relaxation, you will not be subjected to death defying acrobatics or stomach churning diving – however you may request some gentle wingovers.

This experience voucher is valid for 12 months from date of purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by A magnificent experience leaving you wanting to do it again. A boyhood dream about to be realised. From the moment of standing next to the biplane and reaching out to touch it until the last photograph this was an experience that was all it promised. Hearing the engine, feeling the cool air rushing by my head and being thrilled by the scenery below me reinforced my thoughts about what pilots from 1903 to 1939 would have enjoyed or borne whilst travelling from place to place - how sanitized we have it today travelling in modern jet aircraft. It also gave a small insight into what the WWI fighter pilots went through - not only battling the elements, but they had to chase or evade enemy planes knowing that someone would probably die and still know where they were as the scenery below changes so quickly and landmarks look so different from another angle! Whilst all this made the flight fantastic the thing that has stuck most in my mind is that I now understand the saying "flying by the seat of your pants" - it all comes through one's "sit upon". I want to fly this way again! 29 April 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by EXCEEDED EXPECTATIONS It was great to experience a flight in a biplane (Tiger Moth) that was designed in the 1930's. It was exciting to re-live for a short time what my uncle went through when he had 9 hours training on his way to flying Mosquitoes in World War 2. I recommend to take this experience now before these aircraft are only pictures on a wall. 16 December 2012
