I booked a flight in a spitfire for my Dad's 80th birthday. The team were amazing, they welcomed us (me, my Dad, my Mum and my Aunt) with coffee, tea and biscuits. Kevan, the pilot instructor, briefed us on what was going to happen and along with being so knowledgeable, he was great fun. He was very patient with Dad who would insist on flying low and being a daredevil! Only had to parachute out three times before crashing the plane! Thank you soooooooo very much for this most awesome experience, which we all got to watch and able to take home a video to watch again and again!

A present from my wife for our Wedding Anniversary. A fantastic experience. Very welcoming, and accompanied by Max, a qualified commercial pilot, in the simulator who was very good. It is all very realistic and we enjoyed some great trips (including landing at the old Hong Kong airport at night). Well worth it!

Wife bought this for my birthday, so very happy, as I at last was able to sit in a Spitfire and feel the confines of the cockpit and what it was like to fly a single seat fighter in the battle of britain. Wife and I had tea and coffee and very nice biscuits on arrival and made to feel very welcome by the lady, apologies forgot her name, then by my instructor Keven. Read thro some brief flight control notes, as he gave a explanation of the war during 1940. Then we started in the simulator, with excellent tuition by Keven, who I wish I had more time to learn of his own flight experiences flying fast nets. he is on hand to guide you thro the hour, and now wished I had booked 2!, as it went so quick. Would definitely rebook to do this experience. All covid practices in place, but no need to wear mask while your in the cockpit. Very enjoyable, try it for yourself. 10 out of 10.

My wife got me the spitfire experience for my birthday on arrival we received a very warm welcome from Pat. We was offered coffee and biscuits then introduced to Keven my instructor who was very friendly and informative about what was going to happen. Once in the simulator keven talked me through Everything and he was very knowledgable and I enjoyed listening to his own flying experiences . I couldn’t of asked for anything better I truly enjoyed my day from start to finish, And I would highly recommend to anyone considering this experience. I would also like to thank Ann ( the proprietor ) for making sure that everything was in place for the day and for contacting me after my experience to make sure I was happy. I can honestly say I’ve never received such good customer service before. So once again a big thank you to you all. Andy Roe

Set in the stunning Warwickshire countryside I had little idea of the dreams I was about to fulfill. I was nervous and did not know what to expect. My wife and I were met by the lovely Pat who made us a cup of tea whilst we waited for my turn. There was some pre-flight reading (not much honestly, but helpful). We were introduced to the wonderful Keven (he will explain the spelling) who gave the pre flight briefing. We were taken to the simulator and I climbed aboard. Some instructions on the controls and I was away. Lots of helpful advice and tips from the "Captain" then I was manoeuvring by myself. If you have ever heard the tales of "the few" you will appreciate how small their office was. It is not possible to replicate the cold and the smells that they endured, but please use your imagination. I enjoyed the experience immensely. If you can afford it I recommend the usb memory card video of your adventure. When I was departing, Pat asked how it had gone. For a second I choked and my eyes watered, for someone who read every Biggles book before the age of 10 and have been fascinated by flight for over 50 years I could only say thank you. It is a wholly inappropriate statement to describe the elation I felt. If you want a boys own (or girls) adventure to evoke a bygone time this is for you.
