    Arrival
    You will need to make your way to the Aero Legends flight operations area, next to the runway fence, 15 minutes before your flight time.

    Your Aircraft
    The Thruxton Jackaroo is a conversion of the Tiger Moth which came about during the early 1950s when the managing director of the Wiltshire School of Flying, Sqn Ldr J. E. Doran-Webb, was considering building a high wing four to five seat aircraft for touring utilising Tiger Moth components which were plentiful at that time. He was introduced to Ronald Prizeman by the Royal Aero, who designed a four-seat biplane around the Tiger Moth with a revised fuselage section. This became the D.H.82A (Mod) Jackaroo. The Aero Legends Jackaroo is one of only three airworthy Jackaroo's remaining in the World. If you want a biplane trial flight with a closed cockpit then this is the aircraft for you.

    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.

    Tiger Moth Flight
    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.
