Each of our passengers is given a detailed pre-flight safety briefing before walking out to our viewing area and dispersal hut, here you will be equipped with a fitted flight suit and gloves before joining one of our experienced warbird pilots at the aircraft. Once you have been strapped into the aircraft’s cockpit with the assistance of our Ground Crew, you will be familiarised with the safety procedures before setting off on your aerial adventure.
At our pilot’s discretion, you will be given the opportunity to undertake a number of aerobatic manoeuvres, explore the surrounding historic landscape and even take control of the aircraft yourself.
Our 60-minute flight experience has been specifically designed for those who wish to look down upon the famed White Cliffs of Dover or the remarkable Battle of Britain Memorial at Capel Le Ferne. If you wish, we are happy to stay local to Duxford or discuss any alternative flight routes that may be possible.
Please note that the airborne time is approximately 6-10 minutes less than the given experience length.

Take off and embark on a truly unique formation flight experience with a loved one or friend, together in the Hawker Hurricane and one of our Supermarine Spitfires.
With you and your wingman strapped in, feel the power as both aircraft accelerate down the runway and enjoy the thrill of a joint take off. Once in the air, our pilots will take you through a series of manoeuvres that give both you and your loved one the opportunity to see the accompanying Hurricane & Spitfire from every angle. Towards the end of the flight and after some basic formation aerobatics, our pilots will turn their attention to the individual experiences, separating from the formation to give you both the chance to enjoy more aerobatics and give you the opportunity to take control of the aircraft yourselves.
With the Hurricane and two Spitfires available, this experience can be upgraded for three persons to enjoy.
