Don the leather flying helmet and goggles and get ready for a flight of pure nostalgia, from an era of romance and excitement. Let the wind blow through your hair as you experience the thrill of aerobatics in a 1940's vintage open cockpit bi-plane - the Tiger Moth.
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. You will be sitting at the front of the aircraft and your pilot will be sitting behind you.
When all is ready and the propeller has been swung to start the engine, you will be up and away on your 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.
PLEASE NOTE: This experience will be unavailable until November 2017 due to aircraft maintenaince.
You will be one-on-one with the pilot during the flight.
