What Can I Expect

Book your seat on this Leeds Castle pleasure flight for a taste of vintage passenger aviation at its very best! Everybody knows it's one of the country's loveliest castles, but having the chance to fly around Leeds Castle on an aerial tour is a rare opportunity that should be grabbed with two hands.

Setting off from Headcorn Aerodrome, your vintage flight over Kent is operated by a de Havilland Devon. This wonderful looking (and sounding) plane harks back to the fledgling days of post-war passenger air travel. It enjoyed a long and illustrious career as the short haul airliner of choice for many, many years and it's still such a pleasure to fly in one - especially when it's to somewhere as beautiful as Leeds Castle.

After take off, you'll take a northerly direction over the Downs and towards the M20 motorway that cuts through Kent. Just north of Broomfield, you'll see The Great Water come into view and that's when you know you're at Leeds Castle. Past the glamping, playground, maze and formal gardens, you'll be afforded great aerial views of Leeds Castle and its moat on this tour.

What's more, every seat is a window seat in this vintage plane, so no matter where you're sitting, you're going to get great views of Kent on your flight. We needn't tell you that bringing a camera is essential. You'll get some superb shots as you gracefully fly in your classic airliner over the Garden of England.

Dressed in her RAF Transport Command finery, this Devon is the perfect plane for taking a vintage flight over this pretty corner of Kent. With Leeds Castle being so close, it's the ideal tour itinerary for this aircraft, giving you just enough time to enjoy the sensations of vintage flying, take some great photos and look at this most famous of Kentish castles from the air.

Your Leeds Castle pleasure flight lasts around 15-minutes choc-to-choc, that's to say from when the engines start turning, to when you're back on the ground with engines off. Operating between April and October, it makes for a brilliant day out the whole family can enjoy in the flying season. And even if you're not flying, there's the RAF Lashenden Museum, cafe and children's play area on site too.
