Red Baron air race experience 

"From the time we arrived at the Red Baron hanger we were looked after by a very friendly and professional team. The waiting area is very family friendly with plenty to occupy your time while you wait. The flight was fantastic and really pushed my limits. The brilliant pilot took me through the full routine which was awesome. Definitely, recommend this experience to anyone and well worth every cent." Jacquie, 28/05/18.
