The Tiger Moths return in Spring 2017!

Posted on November 27th, 2016

Tiger Moths flying over Port Quinn from bodmin airfield

After a successful 2016 launch of our CFC Nostalgic Flight we will have two wartime Tiger Moths returning to

Bodmin Airfield to 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 is also available so you can fly next to your friend or partner in another similar Tiger Moth. On your return to the airfield you will have the chance to take photos for your memory box and a cream tea will be waiting for you in the Club house.

All this for only £250 each, plus you will take away memories for a life time! The planned dates will be announced on our website www.bodminairfield.com , on Facebook and in the Bodmin Flyer newsletter.
