Pleasure Flights

When you fly with us (T6 Harvard Ltd), we give you a whole immersive wartime experience and transport you back in time to the 1940s when this magnificent trainer was used as the advanced trainer for pilots about to convert to the Hurricane, Spitfire and Mustang (plus many more aircraft including Lancaster’s in some cases). Pilots in the 40s and 50s gained their pilot’s wings on this aircraft, and this is a testament to its nickname “The Pilot Maker.”

We offer the Battle of Britain experience, where you will fly in the “slipstream of heroes!” Flying in this Advanced Warbird trainer in the same sky the battles were fought from our hand-picked wartime airfields and locations. History is at the forefront of our motivation for us, the lucky few who fly these magnificent machines, as we share this passion for keeping the memory of those heroes who went before us.

This experience also allows you to take control of the aircraft under instruction from the instructor, a qualified flying instructor. With hands-on controls, you will see how manoeuvrable this heavy iron is. Beautifully harmonised controls with a fighter-like feel.

During the Battle of Britain experience, we take you through some of the basic aerial combat manoeuvres taught before and during the Battle of Britain; we want you to experience the g and demonstrate the pilot’s difficulties during a dog fight.

To book your once in a lifetime flight experience, please visit the T6 Harvard Aviation website HERE.

Please note that these experiences are part of the Air Show attractions, and you will still need to book an air show ticket in addition.

Harvard Introductory flights are operated by an external company, T6 Harvard Ltd. Please be sure to read their Terms & Conditions prior to booking.
