The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth was the principal type used in the British Commonwealth Air Training Plan where thousands of military pilots got their first taste of flight. The RAF found the Tiger Moth’s handling ideal for training future fighter pilots. A robust little machine, it is generally docile and forgiving in normal flight. The Tiger Moth responds well to control inputs, and is fairly easy to fly for a tail-dragger. Its large “parachute” wings are very forgiving, and it stalls at a speed as slow as 25 knots with power. The Tiger Moth’s biplane design makes it strong, You will be in constant communication with your instructor through your flying helmet. The instructor will handle the take off and landing – at their discretion you will be introduced to the flight controls.

We could not let this week end without saying a big ‘thank you’ to you all for a brilliant afternoon this week. I had the most memorable experience flying over Leeds Castle in your World War II RAF de Havilland Tiger Moth trainer. The afternoon, meeting and talking with you all really was the icing on the cake for me.
Just a line to say what a superb experience I had flying in the Tiger Moth last Saturday. Almost seemed surreal . The pilot was fantastic, calm, clear and friendly which indeed made the experience all the much better. Thank you for making my day.
