    Fly In A Tiger Moth Over The White Cliffs Of Dover- Headcorn Aerodrome, Kent

    Fly In a Tiger moth – Take the controls of a DH 82 and follow the training path of WW2 Spitfire pilots – no flying experience required!
    The Tiger Moth is a classic 1930’s open cockpit biplane. The majority of the R.A.F.s pilots learnt to fly in her before progressing to such types as the Spitfire, Hurricane, Lancaster, Sunderland etc. There are only a small number of Tiger Moths that remain fully certified for trial Tiger Moth flights and therefore this represents a rare opportunity to undertake a flight in one of these classic aircraft and experience what it was like to be an RAF Pilot trainee in the Second World War.

    Aero Legends staff greet you at the Aero Legends main reception and proceed with your check-in. Headcorn Aerodrome has free parking and good facilities. With excellent viewing areas of the runway, a café and licensed bar, we encourage your family and friends to savour the atmosphere and enjoy your Fly In A Tiger Moth experience day. You will need to arrive 30 minutes before your flight to meet your instructor and take a short flight briefing where you will receive all the practical safety information required.

    Your Aircraft
    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 very 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 during the Fly In A Tiger Moth experience you will be introduced to the flight controls. A 60 minute airborne experience is enough time to visit the iconic White Cliffs Of Dover, Dover harbour (which was extensively dive bombed during the Battle Of Britain), Dover Castle, and the famous Hell Fire Corner. You will be mesmerised by the White Cliffs of Dover.

    Photography and video
    Your Fly In A Tiger Moth experience in the de Havilland Tiger Moth can be filmed throughout your lesson with your own device. Phones and cameras can be used, at your own risk, 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 assigned in safe positions at the aerodrome.

    Booking a flying lesson date
    Fly In A Tiger Moth is possible on dates throughout the April – October flying season. In common with other flying experiences, ours are purchased as a voucher receipt via email plus a posted Vintage Gift Pack. These can be presented to the lucky recipient on that special occasion such as an Anniversary, a Birthday, Christmas or a retirement celebration perhaps. Having received their Gift pack, the recipient calls us to book a date to fly.

    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.
