Take a trip back in time with these biplanes! Enjoy biplane flights in wonderfully restored vintage models such as a Tiger Moth, a true icon of the aviation world, at your choice of location throughout the UK. We also offer gift vouchers for flights in vintage aeroplanes other than the Tiger Moth - such as Chipmunks and Havards, as well as sightseeing flights in classic Dragon Rapides. You can browsed the full range of flying experiences here. Your flight experience in a vintage biplane begins with a welcome and safety briefing from your pilot. You will then be helped up into the cockpit and strapped into the very snug interior of the biplane. Then comes the almost theatrical performance of "swinging the prop" - all necessary to get these marvellous old boys started and ready for take off! "Switches off, fuel on, throttle closed, suck in", followed by "contact", then with an almighty heave on the prop, the biplane's engine will burst into life, ready to take flight. Even taxiing in biplanes like the Stampe or Tiger Moth is an art form, as the pilot weaves to and fro craning their neck out of the fuselage, looking past the propellor, to see where you are going. It's hard to explain the exhilaration of take-off in biplanes like this, as it shudders and purrs, eager to get airborne. The windscreen does a very good job of keeping the breeze to a minimum and once up and away in level flight, you will quickly get used to the biplane's engine noise, which fades to a loud but comfortable rumble. Your pilot will demonstrate a few gentle turns in the biplane before letting you take control of this wonderful biplane aircraft for yourself. Taking the flight controls, you'll soon discover only the lightest touch is needed to keep the wings straight and level, or maintain height through a turn - just imagine all those young and eager RAF recruits training in these much-loved biplanes in the 30s and 40s! Any signs of enthusiasm during these biplane flights will be met with the offer to demonstrate more exciting manoeuvres, even a loop, if the aircraft is cleared for aerobatics, for a rather adrenaline-pumpng finale to your first biplane aviation experience! IntotheBlue proudly offers vintage Spitfire flights in an adjacent helicopter, a great way to witness the majestic and memorable Spitfire fly alongside you - you'll be close enough to see the pilot smile!
