With a 20 or 30-minute flight time to choose between there’s lots to do and see in the air in this rather lovely vintage aircraft.This particular Tiger Moth is a bit of a star.

Since then she has passed through the hands of several owners and is now the pride and joy of Robin Russell. Robin flew Phantoms in the RAF executive jets and commercial airliners for easyJet and also holds CAA display pilot accreditation.Since retiring flying his Tiger Moth from White Waltham is his passion.

All the sensations of open-cockpit flying are there.
