Take to the skies and step back in time as you take off in an iconic Tiger Moth – you will be in control by the time you land!

Your Experience can include:

  • Collection from hotel or home and chauffeured to Henley by car or helicopter
  • A short briefing with your highly experienced instructor
  • Take off in a vintage de Havilland Tiger Moth
Fly the Tiger Moth yourself, or if you prefer, simply immerse yourself in the moment and take in the delightful Oxfordshire scenery from this unique vantage point

Once safely back on firm ground, enjoy a delicious champagne picnic 




Take off for a flying lesson in a vintage de Havilland Tiger Moth, where you will learn to fly yourself and the pilot over the stunning English countryside from the open cockpit of this beautiful biplane. Why not take a leisurely tour along the majestic Thames, or fly serenely over the architectural wonders of Oxford or the stunning Highclere Castle, home to Downton Abbey?

Flying in this vintage 1933 RAF trainer is an awesome feeling. Your lesson will start with a briefing from the Instructor about the flying controls, safety procedures, basic flying physics and how to communicate with each other. You will then be guided to the aircraft and strapped in ready for flight. Once in the plane you will be given an explanation of the cockpit instruments. The whole lesson will take approximately one and a half hours.
There will be lots of photo opportunities so don't forget to bring your camera and you can treasure the pictures of you wearing the Irvin flying jacket, helmet and goggles! There is no special clothing required but remember you will be spending time on an open airfield so dress to suit the weather on the day. As the Tiger Moth has an open cockpit flights are usually booked for the warmer months starting in April and finishing at the end of October.

“Thank you for a fabulous morning. It was truly an "Out of Africa" experience, just out of the English countryside, and high was fine with me! And I did have the controls for a few minutes.”
