Description

Duxford, Cambridgeshire:: Can't decide between flying, driving and sightseeing? Try all three at the IWM Duxford. Begin with a briefing in the control tower, then don a flight jacket for a flying lesson in a genuine De Havilland Tiger Moth, the quintessential English biplane. Pose for a picture with the Tiger Moth, before hitting Duxford's military testing ground for a driving lesson in an armoured personnel carrier. After a buffet lunch back at the tower, let someone else do the driving on a flight over Cambridge in a De Havilland Dragon Rapide, enjoying unrivalled views over the Fens and the city. A short, private guided tour of Duxford's aircraft collection includes Spitfires, a B17 and the prototype Concorde. Finish with champagne and a certificate presentation. Availability: Weekend dates approximately once a month between April and October. Weather: As the Tiger Moth is an open-cockpit plane, certain conditions might mean that the flight is rescheduled or some aerobatic movements aren't possible. Please call the venue (after 8.30am please) for a weather check before setting off. Duration: The flight lasts about five and a half hours, including approximately 20 minutes in the Tiger Moth. Please arrive 45 minutes before the allotted start time, or call the venue if delayed. Numbers On Day: Share the experience with a maximum of 15 other people. The Tiger Moth flight is held on a one-to-one basis. The museum is very popular and can get busy on summer weekends and school holidays. Spectators: Visitors are welcome and can get half price entry rates to the museum. Please note that all spectators have to enter the museum to watch any take off. Dress Code: Tiger Moths have open cockpits, so wrap up warm. Wear soft-soled shoes. Bring sunglasses and tie back long hair. Flying kit (jacket, headset and helmet) is provided. Guidelines: Restrictions: Minimum age is 18 and maximum weight is 18 stone. As a guide if you can fit comfortably into a standard size car seat, you will be comfortable in the cockpit. Asthma sufferers may participate. Other Info: Regulations set out by the Civil Aviation Authority can affect your rights in the unlikely event of an accident - full details are available from the venue. MUST take the booking confirmation letter on the day in order to guarantee participation.
