At this time IWM Duxford has been closed to visitors until further notice and as partners of the museum we support this decision in the interest of public health in accordance with the advice given by the government.


For a limited period during this situation, we are making the following offer to enable everyone to feel confident about buying a voucher from Classic Wings:-

  • All vouchers bought from now until further notice will be valid for 2 years (instead of the usual 1 year). 
  • Any of our customers who already have vouchers that they have not yet redeemed will have the expiry date extended by a further year.
  • All  pre-booked flight dates which cannot take place will be put on hold and will be re-bookable for a future date.


These are unprecedented times and as always at Classic Wings our customers’ safety is at the forefront of everything we do.  As the government restrictions are eased we are working closely with the Imperial War Museum Duxford to ensure we work within their guidelines while offering flights to those customers who wish to fly from here.  As part of this work we are taking every step possible to provide a safe environment for our customers and staff.

All of the measures put in place will be under constant review in line with the latest government guidelines.

Coming to Duxford

IWM Duxford is a huge site of over 85 acres where it is easily possible to maintain social distancing, both in the outside areas and in the various hangars. Duxford will have arrangements in place so that when entering the Visitor Centre and during your time on site, social distancing will be maintained.

Day to day operations

Initially our flying will be based around the Tiger Moth, Harvard and two seat Spitfire, but working closely with advice from the Government and the CAA with regards to lifting of current restrictions with regards to Dragon Rapide flights.

One specific crew member will be allocated to deal with each individual party attending site and separate briefing areas will be used to ensure no unnecessary contact with people not with your group.

Taking your flight

 Our facility will be run in line with the site policy issued by IWM Duxford. Measures will include but not be limited to-

  • Regular sanitising of all surfaces
  • Propped doors to avoid use of door handles where possible
  • Sanitising products freely available to all customers and staff
  • Staff training to cover best practice.

When you visit us for your flight you can rest assured that we will be rigorously maintaining our premises and aircraft in line with the very latest government advice.

Our operations team and pilots will be regularly updated with the latest protocols to ensure your safety while still delivering a fantastic flight experience.

Your health and site advice

In line with government advice and IWM site policy if you are exhibiting any Covid 19 symptoms as laid out by the WHO then please DO NOT attend for your flight.   Please follow all the latest government advice and self isolate.

As previously published we have extended our voucher validity time to two years to ensure that you have adequate opportunity to rebook should you be unwell or simply feel unhappy taking your flight at this time.

If you would like to rebook then simply contact our booking team who will be glad to either rebook your date or reactivate your voucher so that you can book online when you feel happy to do so.
