Are you ready for takeoff? 🤩
#1 East Coast Sightseeing Flight in a Rutan Aircraft
This flight departs from Seething Airfield and makes its way towards Kessingland, up the coast towards Great Yarmouth. The tandem 2-seater Rutan Long-EZ features a canard layout, swept wing with wingtip rudders, as well as a pusher engine and propeller. Canard aircraft use the canard to lift the nose during takeoff, reducing the load on the main wing. This helps with wing loading, size and weight, making the overall airframe more efficient. The plane has one seat for £129 and total flying time is 50 minutes.
#2 The World’s First Electric Aircraft Near London
You can officially hop on the first and only type certified aircraft that is 100% electric – the Velis Electro. This unique and rare experience is available for any pilot or enthusiast wanting to learn what the future of aviation might hold. It’s also open to anyone who wants to experience the latest commercially available technology in electric propulsion systems. Total flying time is 25 minutes, the plane has one seat available for £177.
#3 The Vintage Biplane Exceptional Flight
The sight and sound of this vintage British biplane will transport you back to the nostalgia of the 1930s. Accompanied by an experienced club member, this is a unique chance to take a seat in the historic two-seater Tiger Moth and fly into a bygone era. Let this flight take you on a journey through time and experience history firsthand! The plane has one seat for £245, and total flying time is 30 minutes.
#4 The Vintage Harvard Warbird Experience
The Harvard is a genuine 1942 World War II trainer. The aircraft is based at the historic wartime airfield of White Waltham. Following an introduction, you will be taken out to the Harvard and shown around to help appreciate the scale of the aircraft and its 600hp engine. After a full safety brief, you will take off and fly in the skies over Berkshire and Buckinghamshire like many thousands of wartime pilots who trained in this iconic aircraft did in the past. It’s also possible to try some aerobatics before returning to the airfield if you wish to do so. The experience costs £385 per person, the plane has one seat available and the total flying time is 20 minutes.
