Tigers & Tracks for Two at Duxford
Add to Basket
Spend an extraordinary day filled with flying, driving and sightseeing at the one and only Duxford. A true bucket list experience, this will leave you buzzing long after it’s over.
You’ll begin with a flight in the historic Tiger Moth, where you’ll be kitted out in leather flying jackets, goggles and helmets, before heading for the skies and taking the controls as you fly over the Cambridgeshire countryside. Back on terra firma, you’ll clamber over terrain in a fully armoured tank, before a well-deserved buffet lunch.
The adventures don’t stop there. You’ll be taken on a sightseeing flight in a Dragon Rapide, before being welcomed back to the ground with a presentation and a toast. Round things off with a private guided tour of the museum’s incredible aircraft collection. A full day of feeling like true VIPs – you deserve it.

What happens on the day?
Your experience will begin with a briefing in the Control Tower where you will put on your flying jackets, helmets and goggles and head outside to pose for a photograph with your Tiger Moth. Then it’s time for your flying lesson in the historic aircraft where you will be given the chance to take the controls and fly it yourself. Soon after this you will be off to enjoy a driving lesson in an armoured vehicle at Duxford military test grounds before going for your buffet lunch break, back at the Control Tower.
You will then take a pleasure flight over historic Cambridge in the De Havilland Dragon Rapide before being given a guided tour around the private aircraft collection. Head back to the Control Tower to be presented with a glass of bubbly, your certificate, log book and souvenir photograph each.
