A flying lesson in a Tiger Moth is among life's most incredible experiences.

Your Flight Instructor will also take the time to discuss with you the basic principles of flight, and how to control the plane when in the air. Once airborne, your instructor will invite you to take control of the aircraft yourself and experience the thrill of soaring through the skies in an open cockpit biplane.
