Feel like a WWII fighter pilot in training in the cockpit of a Harvard, and take to the skies of Kent for an aerobatic flight that will look as amazing as it feels with this Aerobatic Classic Fighter Plane Experience. The Harvard took the place of the Tiger Moth for trainee RAF fighter pilots in the shadow of the Second World War, as it's much more powerful and far closer to a fighter jet than the Tiger Moth could ever be. A 600hp engine means almost twice the speed (over 200mph), and you'll quickly get into the fighter pilot mindset as you're racing above the ground and undertaking some stomach-churning manoeuvres. It's not just a flight in the plane on offer here, as you'll also be able to take the stick and fly the bird during your 20 minute flight. Your fighter pilot immersion will be helped by the WWII-style parachute you'll be wearing over the course of your experience, and your expert pilot will be able to give you the lowdown on all of your plane's history and capabilities.
Need to Know
On arrival at the chosen airfield in Ashford you'll be greeted by your pilot before being kitted out in all the necessary gear. A safety briefing will get you up to speed before you clamber into the cockpit, and from there it's nothing but thrills as you take off, fly, manoeuvre and land during an exceptional 20 minutes in a Harvard.
