“Incredibly Great Experience / Professional Operation”
Reviewed 26 May 2013

Actions Stations delivers all that's promised. Whether you are an aviation enthusiast, history buff, photographer or just want to enjoy a fantastic sightseeing ride, the "Fly With A Spitfire" experience is spectacular.
All personnel involved are extremely professional. They run a smooth operation and are friendly and personable. It's a treat to talk to the Spitfire pilot, Charlie Brown and appreciate the skills of a military fighter pilot.
I hope to do it again!

“Wow”
Reviewed 21 May 2013

I love Spitfires and this is about as good as it gets without actually flying in one. You fly in a helicopter as the Spitfire flies alongside & gets very close. The pilot, Charlie Brown, is one of the top Spitfire pilots in the world & he dodges from side to side & performs all around you. You just have to look at the silly grins on peoples faces when then get off to realise how much everyone enjoys it. I used to work at Duxford, where the HAL Spitfire is based, so I already had an attachment to the plane but to fly so closely alongside her is a magical experience.

“An absolutely awesome experience!”
Reviewed 25 September 2011

Pent Farm is the perfect location for this experience, we were totally thrilled with the atmosphere and being so close to the Spitfire & Hurricane, seeing them take off, land and fly over the grass airstrip. Actually flying alongside the Spitfire - on Battle of Britain Day - was absolutely awesome - full marks to the helicopter pilot for ensuring that we had such a fabulous view. Everything was incredibly well organised and we have an unforgettable memory which was just what we wanted to celebrate my husband's 70th birthday!
