Bodmin Airﬁeld is fortunate enough to be able to repeat the visit of two wartime Tiger Moths and oﬀer you the chance to live the dream and experience the joys of ﬂying in an open cockpit wartime training aircraft over the beautiful picturesque Cornish landscape. The aircraft you ﬂy in has been lovingly restored to an extremely accurate standard and is ﬂown by a very experienced pilot. On your ﬂight you will wear a sheepskin ﬂying jacket, leather ﬂying helmet and goggles to help transport you back to those halcyon days of real ﬂying. The sensational hour long aviation experience will include a walk round the aircraft with a talk on the WW2 training programme and half-an- hour in the air, when you can actually take the controls. Formation ﬂying and aerobatics are also available so you can ﬂy next to your friend or partner in another similar Tiger Moth. We can even do 3 aircraft together if needed.
All this for only £250 each, plus you will take away memories for a life time!
All are welcome at our events and remember we have the Diner 31 cafe available for food and beverages.
The de Havilland DH.82 Tiger Moth is a 1930s biplane designed by Geoffrey de Havilland and built by the de Havilland Aircraft Company. It was operated by the Royal Air Force (RAF) and many other operators as a primary trainer aircraft. In addition to the type’s principal use for ab-initio training, the Second World War saw RAF Tiger Moth operating in other capacities, including maritime surveillance, defensive anti-invasion preparations, and even some aircraft that had been outfitted to function as armed light bombers.
