For many many years the Harvard was used as the main second-level trainer plane by air forces around the world. Being a low-wing monoplane it would have been quite a big step up from flying biplanes like the Tiger Moth.Aspiring fighter pilots couldn’t wait to get their hands on the Harvard.

Those who did often went on to become bonafide fighter pilots now it’s your turn to see if you can earn your stripes!The Harvard you will be flying in for your lesson at North Weald Airfield was built in 1943. After various missions the plane was sent as part of a 10-plane consignment to serve with the Haitian Air Force. It’s believed this particular Harvard is the only one to have survived when she was returned to the USA in 1982.Eventually arriving in the UK in 1989 the Harvard was re-registered as G-DDMV. She was fully restored by the current owners when she was purchased in 2015 and this delightful plane now flies resplendent in her yellow training colours over the skies of Epping and north Essex.We are offering 15 20 40 and 60-minute Harvard flights out of North Weald.
