What Can I Expect

Zoom through the skies over Epping on these Harvard lessons from North Weald Airfield! Experience war bird flying at its best with this full range of flight durations for Harvard flights out of historic North Weald.

Whether you know it as the Harvard or the North American T-6, there's no denying this plane is a legend. For many, many years the Harvard was used as the main second-level trainer plane by air forces around the world. Being a low-wing monoplane, it would have been quite a big step up from flying biplanes like the Tiger Moth.

Aspiring fighter pilots couldn't wait to get their hands on the Harvard. Way more powerful than anything they would have previously flown during training so far, it was a real baptism of fire for these young pilots to see if they could handle the Harvard. Those who did often went on to become bonafide fighter pilots, now it's your turn to see if you can earn your stripes!

The Harvard you will be flying in for your lesson at North Weald Airfield was built in 1943. After various missions, the plane was sent, as part of a 10-plane consignment, to serve with the Haitian Air Force. It's believed this particular Harvard is the only one to have survived, when she was returned to the USA in 1982.

Eventually arriving in the UK in 1989, the Harvard was re-registered as G-DDMV. She was fully restored by the current owners when she was purchased in 2015 and this delightful plane now flies resplendent in her yellow training colours over the skies of Epping and north Essex.

We are offering 15, 20, 40 and 60-minute Harvard flights out of North Weald. Each one gives you enough time to savour the sheer energy, acceleration and power of this impressive plane. And being a lesson, you'll even time to have a go at the controls, so you will actually be flying this lovely Harvard yourself for a short while. Make sure you wave to your friends and family waiting back at the North Weald base as you soar past in your Harvard!
