    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.

    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.
