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!

Tiger Moth flight Duxford

5 out of 5 11 September 2015
Location: Duxford, Cambridgeshire Age: 55-64 Bought For Partner Occasion: Birthday
A job to think how to make it better apart from paying more and having more time in the air. Brilliant from arriving to leaving very very friendly and polite staff, they obviously want you to enjoy your experience. I was really pleased with the amount of time I was actually flying the plane, the pilot passed control to me once we had reached altitude and I had settled in to the plane. I am not a real daredevil and thought I might have felt worried but far far from it I felt relaxed the whole time even though the breezy day was causing a bit of turbulence. There are certain things you know will stay in your memory for life and this is one of those experiences. If you like planes and want to feel that you are really flying this is for you.
What would you improve for next time? I cannot think of anything

Tiger feet

Location: worcestershire Age: 45-54 Bought For Wife Occasion: Birthday
Very enjoyable flight in an old tiger moth plane. Took the controls and held tight during the loop the loop and victory roll. Please note that the actual flight time is only 5 mins i.e. one circuit of the airfield - the remaining 10 mins is taxi to and from the airstrip. For a reasonable flight extra time has to be purchased at additional cost. This is only explained when you are seated in the aircraft prior to taxi. This was rather disappointing as I really had no choice to pay the extra.
What would you improve for next time? Ensure that the customer is aware of the 5 minute flight duration and that additional costs are incurred for an actual 15 minute flight.

Great flight from Duxford

5 out of 5 10 August 2014
Location: Ascot Age: 45-54 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Birthday
Booked my Tiger Moth flight with Classic Wings at Duxford. From start to finish they were very helpful and efficient resulting in an excellent experience overall. The ground staff and pilot were very welcoming immediately putting me at my ease and calming my nerves on a blustery flying day. Highly recommended. Duxford also offers plenty to see and do before and after your flight.
What would you improve for next time? Intercom volume could be better, I struggled to hear the pilot at times.

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.

5 out of 5 13 August 2012
Location: Chelmsford, Essex Age: 45-54 Bought For Daughter Occasion: Father's Day
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.

Great Fun!

Location: Luton, Bedfordshire Age: 45-54 Bought For Relative Occasion: Birthday
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.

Always loved the Biggles type stuff when I was younger so having a go in a Tiger Moth was way up there on my list. My family finally got the hint when I pointed out what a good deal this was. So i finally got to have a go on a Tiger Moth and it was everything I hoped it would be. The pilot was friendly and we talked about other vintage aircraft. I couldn't have hoped for a better experience.
