Climb into the cockpit of a vintage 1940s Piper Super Cub, where you’ll be able to cruise over the breathtaking countryside of Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire.

Upon arrival you will be met by your experienced instructor, who will introduce you to the plane – the vintage Piper Super Cub PA18-95 G-ARVO - and give you a briefing on safety and flight techniques. The instructor will then lift off and you will fly over the beautiful landscape of Cambridgeshire and Lincolnshire while being shown the basic flying manoeuvres.
