In a nutshell

Where is it?
Your Tiger Moth Experience will take place at The Aerodrome, New Lennerton Lane, Sherburn-in-Elmet, Leeds, West Yorkshire, LS25 6JE.

The Tiger Moth Experience flights operate every day between 09:00 and dusk, April to September inclusive.

Length of experience
You are welcome to spend the whole day at the airfield but please arrive at least 1 hour before the flight, pre-flight briefing, flight and post flight debrief will take in excess of an hour.

What you need to know
Tiger Moth flying is extremely weather-dependent.

A warm base layer is advisable. A leather flying jacket will be supplied. Please bring along your own gloves and flat-soled shoes.

You are welcome to bring friends along to watch but please leave all pets at home. Photography is welcome. The café provides good home-cooked food and is available all day.

It is unusual to feel air sick in open cockpit flying, but if you feel you may become unwell then please consult your GP who may prescribe medication. Any prescribed medication should be taken before your flight commences. Your pilot will be sensitive to your condition if you can inform him whilst flying.

Please be aware that once you are kitted out with a flying jacket it is a rather snug fit in the cockpit and therefore a weight limit of 17 stones (108 kg).

How much will it cost?
This incredible Tiger Moth Flight experience costs £499 including your flight pack and photograph.

To have a boxed and gift wrapped voucher sent by post will cost an additional £3.50.

You will receive a boxed gift voucher (or e-voucher if that is your preference) from Uniquely Local upon purchase and your flight box will follow shortly.

How to redeeem your voucher
Your e-voucher or gift box voucher will have a contact name and information about booking your experience. If you have any questions before booking please call 0800 772 0825.

Tiger Moth Flight Experience

tiger-moth-squadron-logoTiger Moth Flight Experience work in collaboration with the RAF Benevolent Fund, the RAF’s leading welfare charity.  They have developed a flight package which will not only thrill you and give you the flight experience of a lifetime but also enable them to contribute to the great work the Fund does for serving and retired RAF personnel. A contribution from each experience sold is given to the RAF Benevolent Fund.

The de Havilland Tiger Moth biplane was the primary RAF training aircraft during the Second World War. Pilots would then move on to either fighters such as the Spitfire and Hurricane or bombers such as the Lancaster and Wellington.

Come and fly in the de Havilland Tiger Moth and experience the thrill of open cockpit flying. Ideal for that land-mark birthday celebration or anniversary.
