About Flying with Spitfires
Take a helicopter flight, in formation with a Spitfire! Imagine the excitement of scanning the skies for a Spitfire scrambled to intercept you. You’ll hear and feel the roar of the famous Rolls-Royce Merlin engine as the iconic fighter joins you in close formation before executing a series of carefully choreographed aerobatic manoeuvres. Think of it as a private flying display, in the air. Our helicopters offer the best view of a Spitfire in the air.

At present I am really disappointed with the service received. I purchased a ticket as a gift for my Grandfather's 90th birthday this time last year. He is really passionate about war aviation and this was an exciting gift for him. His first flight was cancelled due to technical issues but he had already travelled to Chichester by the time we were informed. His second flight was cancelled due to the weather. I completely understand these reasons for cancelling given the nature of the experience. I am saddened however at the alternatives offered. I have been informed that the next available option for him will be in April of next year, at which point my Grandad will be coming up to his 92nd birthday. No other alternatives can be arranged unless I am able to pay a further £500, which would be next to impossible for me. I have also had no response to my email expressing sadness about this. I feel upset at the possibility that he might never experience the once in a life time flight that he was so looking forward to. I feel upset to have disappointed him without being able to offer anything in the near future. I feel saddened by the lack of acknowledgement from the company, given my Grandads age, the fact that he lived through the spitfire era and it is so meaningful to him, the money that I have already parted with, and the efforts already made to get him to Chichester on these occasions. Please consider the possibility of disappointment before purchasing as a gift

Flew on 30th July with a Spitfire and Hurricane. Simply amazing, genuinely is an experience of a lifetime, impossible to value. Professional, knowledgeable staff who look after you from when you arrive to when you leave. The experience itself is not easily described, unique and amazing is really the only words. Great to see these kind of experiences being supported to keep these amazing aircraft flying. Thank you.
