On the weekends of  May 5th & 6th and August 11th & 12th (Weather permitting)

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!

The planned dates for 2018 are 5th-6th May and 11th-12th August  (weather dependant)

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.
