This product is only available to RedBalloon customers
Upon arrival at the hangar, you will meet your pilot and ground staff for the day and be shown around the vintage, open cockpit Tiger Moth aircraft (with plenty of time for photos) where safety aspects will be explained. Then you will be helped to strap yourself into your seat. For the duration of the flight you'll be sitting in the front seat and your pilot will be seated behind you. When all is ready and the propeller has been swung to start the engine, you will be up and away on your aerobatic flight. You have communication with your pilot for the duration of the flight and he will make the journey as enjoyable as possible for you, explaining the Manoeuvres and being as adventurous with loop the loops and rolls as you wish. Alternatively you can choose to just sit and watch the world fly past while your pilot points out the areas of interest. On return to the Hangar you will be assisted from the aircraft by the ground crew where there is an opportunity for some more photos to compliment your amazing memories of your tiger moth aerobatic flight.
You will be one-on-one with the pilot during the flight.

Casual and comfortable clothing is recommended. Comfortable footwear will make getting in and out of the aircraft easier.
