Take to the skies just as the RAF pilots did when training for WWII with this nostalgic 40 minute Tiger Moth flight. This incredible experience will truly take you back to a golden age of aviation as you take the controls of this vintage bi-plane. Your fully qualified and experienced pilot will greet you on arrival and get you kitted up in your flight jacket, leather cap and goggles, ready for some great photo opportunities as you take a wander over to the Tiger Moth. Your pilot will familiarise you with the controls in the cockpit before you both strap yourselves in for takeoff. Once in the air you’ll be treated to a demonstration of the capabilities of this surprisingly manoeuvrable machine as you swoop up with the birds. Then, if your pilot believes you are ready, you can take the controls, under their watchful supervision of course. You’ll hand back controls for landing to complete a most memorable flight.

A real hands-on thrill for the flight enthusiast

5 out of 5 03 September 2014
Location: Kent Age: Over 65 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Birthday
This was a birthday gift from my daughter who knows of my interest in aviation. I've flown before in a Chipmunk, but never in an open cockpit aircraft. It's an experience that won't be for everyone, but one I thoroughly enjoyed and is unlikely to be repeated. The view straight ahead is limited but the cockpit sides are fairly low. It's more like looking out from a hot air balloon basket than an aeroplane. Be aware that it's not the smoothest of rides even on a calm day, but that's part of the excitement. My trip took me from Duxford up the M11 and as close to Cambridge as allowed, then on roughly to Huntingdon and back. I think about 1,500 feet was the maximum height we reached so the views are fantastic. My brief turn at the controls was interesting to say the least. Trying to keep the 'plane straight and level was not easy and our progress would have looked odd from the ground, I suspect. A degree of agility is needed to enter and leave the cockpit. Highly recommended, and there are shorter flights if you don't want or can't afford to be up there for 40 minutes.
What would you improve for next time? A bit more attention on the ground for the correct fitting of helmet and goggles.

Excellent Experience

Location: Tunbridge Wells Age: Over 65 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
It was lovely to go up in a Tiger Moth and taking the controls. The pilot was very informative, telling me exactly where we were. It was a novelty to fly over Newmarket Racecourse. Got me in the mood for my subsequent trip to Ascot Races 2 days later. Felt very comfortable up in the skies. It is an excellent 'plane to fly in.
What would you improve for next time? A full face helmet would have been better as I wear glasses and had to put goggles on over them.

A truly amazing experience

Location: Essex Age: 45-54 Bought For Husband Occasion: Birthday
The Tiger moth flight was a birthday present from my husband. I had already done a balloon flight and a helicopter flight so this was the latest of my airborne adventures. From start to finish, everybody at Duxford was extremely helpful and polite and looked after me and treated me like a VIP. The pilot was very knowledgable and made me feel very safe the whole flight. In all a wonderful day that I would recommend to anyone, thank you !!

We arranged for Dad to go up in the Stampe SV4c which he loved! Said it was one of the best things he's done for ages. The plane looked lovely against a blue sky so we took plenty of photos for him.

My father has always loved bi-planes and everything from that era so I thought this would be wonderful experience for him. He had a great flight in the Tiger Moth admiring the views and feeling the rush of the wind! We have some lovely photos of him with the plane too which are nice for him to remember it by.
