Warbird  Harvard Flights

Flights from £429

A trial flying lesson in the  Harvard is a truly unique experience as the opportunity for a flight in a warbird such as this is very rare – and you get the chance to take the controls yourself!

A real adrenaline rush for the pilot or non pilot alike – this powerful and exciting aircraft was used to train pilots converting onto the legendary Spitfire, and is definitely the next best experience to actually flying a Spitfire!

Choose from a 20 minute or 30 minute flight.

I just wanted to write and thank you for making the day extra special for all of us. Flying in a Harvard Warbird and getting the experience of flying a WW2 Fighter has made a dream come true for my Dad and he was thrilled that he got to do some loop the loops and barrel rolls, this really has made his birthday and is one of the best presents he’s ever had!

What to expect from your  Harvard flight with Classic Wings

After a pre-flight briefing from your instructor and a walk round of the aircraft, it is time to climb into the cockpit and prepare for your flying lesson.

Taxy to the Hold where your instructor will effect the take off and climb into the air. During the flight he will demonstrate the controls then give you the chance to take the controls for yourself. You will be piloting a Warbird – awesome!

On saturday I had a flight in the Harvard, just want to say a VERY BIG thank you to Neil, the pilot, for making it the most memorable day of my life, I will never forget it. I am still grinning now!!!!!
