Add to Basket
This is one of the most exhilarating experiences you will ever have, darting about the sky and witnessing first hand the skills it takes to accomplish those daring aerobatics you’ve always admired. To make your day even better, once your fighter pilot instructor has shown you the ropes, you’ll be offered the helm and will get to show off what you’ve learnt.
Your plane is an ex-military T67 Firefly, this propeller-driven plane with piston engine, has been the training aircraft of choice for the military to train pilots before moving onto fast jets. They were used by the RAF between 1995 and 2010, and are still currently in use by several air forces round the world. Prince Harry flew his first solo in a T67!

What happens on the day?
Upon arrival you will be kitted out into your flying suit and military bone dome. After this you’ll attend a pre-flight briefing which includes a parachute discussion and a short video. You will also receive a personal sortie brief with a former military instructor, ensuring that the sortie is tailored to you.
Then it’s time to strap on your parachute and have a cockpit controls and safety brief at the aircraft before boarding the ex-military T67 Firefly. This aircraft’s car equivalent is a Ferrari 458 and you will be capable of reaching speeds up to 224 mph during your flight, climbing at 1400 feet per minute. Your instructor will demonstrate manoeuvres for you first, talking through them and you will then get the chance to try them out yourself. Once back on the ground you will have a personal debrief and will receive a signed flight certificate.
