20 Minute Tiger Moth Flying Lesson

Description

Journey back in time and take to the skies for a nostalgic flight aboard a magnificent vintage plane with this 20 Minute Tiger Moth Flying Lesson.

The Tiger Moth is a classic 1930s open cockpit biplane, once used as the perfect flying machine to teach Second World War R.A.F. pilots how to fly before they progressed on to more advanced aircrafts such as the Spitfire, Hurricane and Lancaster.

Today only a small number of Tiger Moths remain certified to fly, which makes this flying experience a truly rare opportunity to undertake a flight in one of these iconic airplanes. What's more, you'll be kitted out with authentic goggles and a traditional flying jacket. It's an amazing feeling being up in the air in a Tiger Moth. Especially with the open cockpit, as you can feel the wind on your face.

Your adventure begins with a pre-flight briefing to familiarise yourself with the controls of this historic aircraft. Seated behind your instructor, you taxi out to the runway and then take to the skies for a flight of pure nostalgia. During the flight you'll have the chance to take the controls; cruising at a speed of around 80 knots (just over 80 miles per hour) you'll have a fantastic view of the landscape below.

This wonderful flying experience is the perfect treat for any classic aviation fan.

Single Seater Racing Car Driving

Description

Single seaters are the closest you will ever get to driving a genuine F1 car. As you sit in the small cockpit you look out towards the start line, you start to build the revs, and when the flag is dropped you drop the clutch and launch down the straight. In a matter of seconds you're taking the corners and barrelling along!

The programme typically involves a welcome on arrival, followed by a briefing. Then it’s time to take to the wheel for laps in a performance saloon, where your instructor will demonstrate circuit driving techniques such as taking the correct line on a corner. Next you take the wheel yourself to practice what you have been taught. Then the real action begins: you take a single seater racing car such as a Formula First, Formula Renault or Formula Ford around the racing circuit. With potential acceleration of 0-60 in less than 6 seconds, these cars are perfectly placed to introduce you to the exhilaration and excitement of racing.

The person driving the car will be required to sign a disclaimer accepting liability in the event of damage to the vehicle. The driver will be given an option to purchase damage waiver cover when booking to minimise their financial exposure should there be an accident. Drivers are under no obligation to purchase this optional waiver. Full details are available at the time of booking.

Half Day Rally

Description

You're barrelling along a track. "Medium left!" yells your instructor. You turn the wheel, heave the handbrake and in an instant you're powersliding, cornering faster than you've ever done before. Rally driving is completely different from any other form of driving, and this rallying gift experience is the perfect way to find out just how different. Imagine a sport where you are almost permanently skidding and turning at least 50 yards before each corner. There's no doubt that a rally driving activity means fast and furious excitement and rallying is the perfect gift for anyone with a need for speed.

You'll start your day with an introductory briefing from your rallying instructor and then it's time to get behind the wheel for some practice sessions. You'll learn classic rallying techniques such as hand brake turns and controlled opposite lock slides. Many of the courses have loose surface rally stages - which means much more sliding, and much more fun!

What's more, we use a wide selection of rally schools with the latest equipment (such as headphones in your helmet, so you can clearly hear what's going on).

The person driving the car will be required to sign a disclaimer accepting liability in the event of damage to the vehicle. The driver will be given an option to purchase damage waiver cover when booking to minimise their financial exposure should there be an accident. Drivers are under no obligation to purchase this optional waiver. Full details are available at the time of booking.

Description

Reach for the sky with your first flying lesson and soar away into the wide blue yonder. Under expert tuition, you can take the controls yourself and discover the absolute freedom of the sky.

Your 60 minute flying lesson begins with a pre-flight briefing with your instructor, where you will learn the effects of an aircraft's controls and what you will be doing during your first trial flying lesson. Then it's time to walk out to the aircraft where you will be taken on a 'walk round' to see the main control surfaces of the aircraft. Your instructor will take off and then demonstrate some basic manoeuvres. Then it's your turn! Feel the aircraft respond to your lightest touch and experience for yourself the sheer exhilaration of flying.

Gliding with an Aerotow for Two

Description

After your first flight in a glider, you'll be hooked! Why? Firstly, it's much more challenging than powered flight - you need a lot of skill to keep a glider airborne, knowing how to recognise lift (rising air), where to find it and how to use it. More importantly, it's also great fun. You may even get the chance to fly alongside birds!

After a pre-flight briefing, you will be strapped in the glider with your instructor. The glider is attached to another aircraft which will tow you into the sky. Once the cable is released you search out some thermals and then gently glide back down to earth. At some locations you may get two winch launched flights or one soaring flight instead.
