What can I expect on the day

Go trailblazing in a Tiger Moth in Oxfordshire! Chiltern Air Park is a lovely base from which to take to the skies in what is quite probably the most iconic biplane ever built. It’s time for some vintage fun with these hand-on trial lessons over the Chilterns.

Ex-RAF officer Chris Thompson is at the helm here and his lifelong aim is to restore and operate historic aircraft and then, rather than just have them sitting pretty in an aviation museum or private hangar somewhere, to actually fly them as much as possible and bring the wonderfully nostalgic world of open-cockpit flying to as wide an audience as possible.

And indeed, as custodians of these vintage warbirds, it’s clear to see how Chris and his team here in Oxfordshire are so passionate about these planes. They have a steadily growing fleet of recently and immaculately restored aeroplanes including the much-loved Tiger Moth.

All these classic planes are steeped in history including Tiger Moth G-AOIM, which was built not a million miles away from this Chilterns aerodrome in Cowley at Morris Motors in 1940. She flew out of Oxfordshire to serve with the Elementary Flying Training Schools at the likes of RAF Sealand before being demobbed. Today she sports her RAF trainer colours with pride as she continues to dutifully clock up the hours.

Indeed Moths and other restored aircraft at Chiltern Air Park have been given a new lease of life and there’s nothing better than taking awe-struck Tiger Moth fans out for a spin over Oxfordshire. And when we say ‘spin’ that is quite literally, as these experiences include (if you’re up for it) some nice gentle loops!

We are offering 15, 20, 30, 40 and 60 minute flights in a Tiger Moth from this Oxfordshire base. You’ll be sporting the traditional-style helmet and flying goggles for your flight, with an intercom headset so you can hear your instructor pilot who’ll be sitting in the rear of the tandem seats. You can be as hands on as you like with flights, or you can just sit back and enjoy the aerial views of the Chilterns.
