You’ll start your time with us in our incredibly rare WW2 Fordson truck where you’ll be briefed by pilots on this beautiful aircraft, the routes you’d like to take and the weather. You’ll be kitted out with a military flight suit As with all our flights, you’ll have the chance to see some of the most beautiful coastline that the UK has to offer. Choose from a 30 or 60 minute flight.
Once we’ve talked through the experience, you’ll make your way out to WG458 which will be waiting on the operating pan outside. You’ll climb into the Chipmunk and will find yourself in the cockpit where you’ll be talked through the controls and after just a few minutes the vintage aircraft will come to life with the sound of the 40’s as the engine starts. After some checks, the pilot will taxi to the runway and you’ll find yourself in the skies above Northumberland.
Family and friends are welcome to join you for the briefing and will be able to get up close with WG458 on the ground. They’ll be able to stay at the airfield clubhouse overlooking the runway as you take to the skies. You can also book in on one of our hangar tours to see an insight into what goes on behind the scenes at Eshott Airfield.
Experiences run throughout the summer months. Winter months are generally spent on crew training and maintenance but check for availability.
