    Your Aircraft
    The Harvard (Commonwealth name) or North American T-6 Texan (US name) is a single-engined advanced trainer aircraft. It was used to train pilots of the United States Army Air Forces (USAAF), United States Navy, Royal Air Force and other air forces of the British Commonwealth during World War II and into the 1970s. Infact, the Harvard is down as the longest-serving RAF aeroplane, used from 1945 and still serving in the 1990s. 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.

    Photography and video
    Phones and cameras can be used during your flight if they are secured by a neck lanyard or wrist strap. Spectators and family members can take photos and videos from the ample viewing areas along the runway fence at the aerodrome.

    Booking Your Battle Of Britain Air Show T6 Harvard Air Experience

    Regarding my flight in the Harvard last Friday of which I was quite nervous after receiving it as a 60th birthday present. May I congratulate you for giving me a fantastic experience I truly enjoyed it, everyone was so friendly and relaxed.
