Hi David We certainly don't have an issue with that at all but would ask you to seek advice from your doctor to ensure there is no risk to you. Providing your doctor is happy then so are we. Stuart @ Classic Wings

I took a 40 minute Tiger Moth flight in September 2016. The total cost was 269 British Pounds which at the time translated to just over $500.00 Canadian.
