Got The T Shirt! I do not have a bucket list, but if you are writing one, i suggest you include a flight with TIGER AIRWAYS. My introduction to this class act was a birthday from my wife and daughter and proved to be the perfect tonic from the mundane. My daughter got it right when she said " I have not heard you enthuse like a child for such a long time" safe to say I have got the T shirt and the certificate to prove I have been in the company of genuine professional enthusiasts. It was certainly worth going the extra mile and I would recommend (and have been) to anyone who will listen. 05 May 2014
tiger flight An absolutly wonderful experience, all the classic wings staff were spot on. This was a birthday present so I did not make the initial purchase but from booking to leaving the site was perfect. 13 April 2014
Great experience The setup seems a bit ramshackle, but interesting as we could wander through the hangar and look at 'planes being repaired before we were greeted and given the introduction. The pilot was friendly and efficient, pitching the instructions just right. The flight itself was great, though we didn't travel as far as I thought we would (the Stampe is slower than I thought) and it was much smoother than I expected - weather conditions helped. Great views over Gloucester and surrounding area. The pilot asked whether I wanted to do a loop and a victory roll - I did - and I took the controls briefly, though I could have done so for longer. When we got home I showed my grandson some Biggles books to explain the mentions of that name during our visit. Overall the experience was at least as good as I had hoped, and the aerobatics less stomach-churning than I'd expected. 08 January 2013
Great Day Brought this flight for my dad for christmas, easy to book (& rebook after the 1st date was cancelled due to the weather), went from Rochester airport, he said the flight was amazing & he even got to fly the tiger moth (also got to wear biggles style hat, goggles & jacket!!) 30 July 2011
