Now is your chance to take control of a real Tiger Moth and soar through the air at one of six locations nationwide. You’ll have 15 minutes in the air with a fully qualified instructor who will first give you a demonstration before handing control to you in this specially modified dual control aircraft. Before takeoff, you will be fully briefed by your pilot, who will introduce you to the aircraft. Then it’s time to put on your authentic leather jacket and goggles, to really capture that nostalgic feeling. You’ll then be shown to your vintage Tiger Moth and prepare for takeoff. Once in the air, you’ll be able to feel the thrill of flying in this incredible bi-plane, with the wind in your face and the incredible scenery below. Once you are ready, your pilot will hand over controls and under his supervision you can fly this incredible aircraft for the first time. What an incredible thrill!

An experience not to be missed! Was bought the flight as a birthday present for a 15 min flight, upgraded to a 30 min flight and was grateful I did. If you have any interest in these nostalgic planes would recommend this experience. 04 October 2013
Try a Tiger Bought for my Dad who really enjoyed the whole experience , couldn't have wished for a better day.My dad was only meant to have a 15 mins flight but ended up having 25 minutes as it was near lunchtime. The pilot and the staff at Classic Wingsat Duxford were excellent looked after him and me really well.I couldn't have picked a better present for him. The only down side was that the telephone number for Classic Wings quoted on the buy a gift web site was not in service on Saturday Morning so this did cause a bit of stress but thanks to a helpful neighbour i managed to get another number to ring to make sure the flight was going ahead. 13 August 2012
Great Fun! Dressed up like Biggles and off in abright yellow Tiger Moth. Pilot was excellent and allowed me to take the controls, did a few turns and flew back towards the airfield. this could definately give you the flying bug. The staff where great, and i took home a fantastic photo of me sitting in the plane, although i refused the in flight video, i thought it very expensive for a 15 minute video, otherwise a great experience that i want to do again. 06 September 2011
