What we do:
Vintage Flying offers public flight experiences in World War Two Tiger Moth aircraft. Flights last between 15 to 75 minutes depending on the experience that has been paid for by the customer, with the opportunity for the customer to take control of the aircraft where they feel comfortable. All of our flights are pre-booked through the administration team or can be bought online from our website (mentioned above); this is due to the nature of scheduling the operational flight day, flight times and ensuing pilot availability. The flying season runs from the start of April to the end of October from Friday to Sunday at the airfield and from the office during the winter. We are closed on Monday. The experience is weather permitting due to the make-up and materials of the aircraft framework. Customers who are welcome to visit the airfield on any of our operation days and can pre-book an appointment to visit the airfield and speak to crew members if they have any queries such as a fear of heights or flight anxieties.
Please see below the various flight experiences that we offer:
15 minutes (Customer can be in control of the aircraft for up to 10 minutes of the flight)
30 minutes (Customer can be in control of the aircraft for up to 20 minutes of the flight)
