The Tiger Moth Flight Experience – welcome to the world of open cockpit flying. The sights, smells and sounds are unique to this type of aviation. The de Havilland Tiger Moth was the primary wartime RAF trainer and all pilots, such as Guy Gibson, flew the Tiger Moth during their initial training.

We challenge you not to be inspired by a flight in our Tiger Moth DA82A.

Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund Tiger Moth Squadron

In collaboration with the RAF Benevolent Fund, the Tiger Moth Flight Experience have developed a flight package which will not only thrill you and give you the flight experience of a lifetime but also enable us to contribute to the great work the Fund does for serving and retired RAF personnel.

Come and have a great time at our themed wartime experience. Bring your family and friends and share the fun.
