The majority of the R.A.F.s pilots learnt to fly in her before progressing to such types as the Spitfire, Hurricane, Lancaster, Sunderland etc. There are only a small number of Tiger Moths that remain fully certified for trial Tiger Moth flights and therefore this represents a rare opportunity to undertake a flight in one of these classic aircraft and experience what it was like to be an RAF Pilot trainee in the Second World War.

The Thruxton Jackaroo is a conversion of the Tiger Moth which came about during the early 1950s when the managing director of the Wiltshire School of Flying, Sqn Ldr J. E. Doran-Webb, was considering building a high wing four to five seat aircraft for touring utilising Tiger Moth components which were plentiful at that time. He was introduced to Ronald Prizeman by the Royal Aero, who designed a four-seat biplane around the Tiger Moth with a revised fuselage section. This became the D.H.82A (Mod) Jackaroo. The Aero Legends Jackaroo is one of only three airworthy Jackaroo's remaining in the World. If you want a biplane trial flight with a closed cockpit then this is the aircraft for you.

What our customers say
FLY WITH A SPITFIRE Saturday was a brilliant day. The occasion was an 80th birthday present from my family and it will stay with me for the rest of my life. I took a flight alongside a Spitfire seeing aerial artistry and flying theatre. The Spitfire appears, flying within smiling distance. She manoeuvres around you with breathtaking ease. The de Havilland Devon, an ex RAF passenger aircraft, propels you through the air at the correct operational speed for the Spitfire to dance around your panoramic window. Air to air photo shoots like this don’t get any better! Nigel B - Flight Alongside A Spitfire
