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.

Excellent Experience 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. 19 June 2014
A truly amazing experience 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 !! 23 August 2013

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. 16 November 2010
