What can I expect on the day

What could be more befitting than flying a Tiger Moth plane at the historic home of the Tiger Club! Your experience takes place at Redhill Aerodrome and back in the heyday of civilian flying, this airport played a very pivotal role in the flying of Tiger Moths.

This airstrip in Surrey was the base of the famous Tiger Club between 1959 and 1990, where pilots honed their aerobatic and formation flying skills to put on impressive displays to wow the crowds all around the country, as well as starting air racing competitions. Nothing quiet so daredevil today in your vintage Tiger Moth, but on longer plane flights you might be able to (easily) persuade the pilot to pull a couple of moves!

The Tiger Moth plane you'll be flying in is G-AKUE, one of the rare Portuguese-built DeHavilland Tiger Moths. Painted up in a rather fetching dark blue with red and white fuselage stripes, this very handsome Tiger Moth dates back to 1939. The plane is well-travelled, with stints in Mozambique and Northern Rhodesia where she was known as 'Nokomis' (daughter of the moon) and worked as a general transport provider, before somehow heading to the plains of Surrey.

This DH82a version of the Tiger Moth is a delightful plane to fly and for all these experiences you'll be kitted out in authentic flying jacket and aviator helmet for a truly nostalgic flight. We are offering various flight durations, so there is something to suit every budget, from a 15 minute taster to get a feel for what it's like to be in an open cockpit plane, to a full 40 minute flight where you'll get great views of the Kent and Surrey countryside.

If you buy this experience for any aviation fan, we are sure just the fact that they can get up close to a Tiger Moth plane is a thrill in itself, let alone actually taking off in one and then even having a go at the controls. We think these Tiger Moth flights in Surrey offer a fantastic day out at an historic airfield that will be cherished by the lucky flyer. Indeed, with spectators welcome to join you to watch the take off, circuits and landing, we're sure it'll be a memorable day out for all the family.

My only surprise was how low one sits! I did not take the controls as due to hearing problems I could not hear the pilot clearly enough to follow instructions, and could not see where I was going. The experience was amazing, real flying (and I have taken control of other light aircraft in the past).The pilot kept height and speed superbly as evidenced by how close the instruments were. He was superb.
Yes, I recommend this product.

It was a great experience and the day was full of blue sky which helped! Good set up allowing the whole family to watch. Friendly staff. The only niggle was the miscommunication about the delay in flight time. Other than that great day and would highly recommend.
Yes, I recommend this product.
