The Tiger Moth is a classic 1930's open cockpit biplane. One of you will have a unique 15 minute Airshow experience, enjoying boarding and strapping in the aircraft, a taxi run, take-off with 5 minutes airborne then landing, taxi run and disembarkation.

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
I would like to thank you all for such a wonderful day on the 28th July when my husband Andrew had his flight in the Spitfire. This was a surprise birthday present for him & I really couldn't have asked for anything more to make his day special, even the weather was perfect! Every team member that we met were polite, friendly and very accessible which all helped to make us feel welcome. Our family were able to enjoy the whole experience, especially as there were so many other things going on at the airfield during the day for them to watch. Lorraine Vidler - Flight In A Spitfire
