What can I expect on the day
Our Duxford flight experiences aren't just about time in the sky, they're a whole day out for all the family! This amazing aerodrome is steeped in aviation history and is, of course, home to the world-renowned IWM Duxford museum.
The fact that access to the Duxford museum is included for all those taking flights is what makes these experiences unique - and even friends and family accompanying you benefit from half price tickets.
Serving as an RAF station in both world wars, the site now houses Europe's largest collection of aviation and military exhibits. There are over 200 static aeroplanes to see and 85 acres to explore, including the Operations Room, AirSpace telling the story of British aviation, an original 1917 hangar and the ultra-modern American Air exhibition built by award-winning architect (and himself a pilot) Norman Foster.
In reality, the whole Duxford aerodrome site is like a living museum experience. As well as hosting incredibly popular air shows and fly-ins, there are many classic, very much serviceable aircraft that call Duxford home and still regularly take flight from here. Less well known are the flying schools also based on the airfield, such as this one you'll be heading to.
We are offering 30 or 60 minute flights in a modern two seater Cessna 152 plane and we think these experiences make for truly superb days out for aviation enthusiasts. Just imagine taking off at Duxford and looking down on some very sought after aeroplanes and flying right over the top of the hangars. If you can contain your excitement at the spectacular aerial vistas, your instructor-pilot will let you take control and fly yourself over this iconic location.
Duxford flight experiences offer you a piece of the aviation action at a bustling airfield where history is, quite literally, in the air. Your flight is sure to delight, as you have a very privileged view of those plane-filled hangars, runways and aprons here at IWM Duxford in Cambridgeshire.
