We will be operating a reduced number of flights each day and increasing site cleaning at regular intervals. Currently, the Imperial War Museum remains closed and we can currently only accept up to three additional guests from the same household to our facilities, we can also not accommodate any tours of the Aircraft Restoration Company hangars.


We have begun rescheduling flights and continue to experience a high frequency of enquires if you would like to discuss rescheduling your flight experience or would like to make a new booking, please contact us via our office phone number 01223 653830.
