RAF Benevolent Tigermoth Squadron


The Tiger Moth Flight Experience – welcome to the world of open cockpit flying. The sights, smells and sounds are unique to this type of aviation. The de Havilland Tiger Moth was the primary wartime RAF trainer and all pilots, such as Guy Gibson, flew the Tiger Moth during their initial training.

We challenge you not to be inspired by a flight in our Tiger Moth DA82A.

Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund Tiger Moth Squadron

In collaboration with the RAF Benevolent Fund, the Tiger Moth Flight Experience have developed a flight package which will not only thrill you and give you the flight experience of a lifetime but also enable us to contribute to the great work the Fund does for serving and retired RAF personnel.

Come and have a great time at our themed wartime experience. Bring your family and friends and share the fun.

As our flight experience plane, the de Havilland Tiger Moth biplane was the primary RAF training aircraft during the Second World War. Pilots would then move on to either fighters such as the Spitfire and Hurricane or bombers such as the Lancaster and Wellington.

Come and fly with us and experience the thrill of open cockpit flying. Ideal for that special birthday or anniversary.

Our Tiger Moth flight experience immerses you into the thrill of wartime flying – the initial flight briefing, aircraft checks, ground control procedures, taxiing, take off and of course the flight and all important landing!

Your experience will cover the following:

  • Full appraisal and walk round of aircraft
  • Pre-flight briefing of the capabilities of the aircraft and the controls
  • A flight over the gorgeous Yorkshire countryside and various aerobatic manoeuvres in the aircraft which your pilot will thrill you with
  • Use of the instruments
  • Use of the intercom/radio
  • Post-flight debrief

Our 30 and 60 minute flights include a spiffing gift pack to ready you for your experience and all recipients will receive their Order to Report instruction certificate.
