Our Duxford Air Museum flight will take you and a companion from North Weald to Duxford Air aerodome in Cambridgeshire. You'll land on the historic World War Two runway - The same runway that had Spitfires, Hurricanes, and Lancaster bombers landing on it during World War two and beyond. See the aerodrome and museum from a unique perspective and take the control en route!
You and your companion will depart North Weald for Duxford Aerodrome in Cambridgeshire in a 4 seater aircraft with the flyer in the front and the companion in the rear seat. On the way to Duxford you will – under the guidance of your flight instructor – take the controls and navigate yourselves to the historic airfield of Duxford where after a low fly past along the historic World War Two runway you will land on the same tarmac that Spitfires, Hurricanes, and Lancaster bombers departed and arrived on during wartime. Taxi off of the runway, then it’s time to switch positions with your companion for the return leg and fly back to North Weald!
Your pilot will then give you a tour of the aircraft you'll be flying in and a description of the flight systems and instruments before a safety briefing, then you'll take to the sky!

Thanks for my trip to Duxford. My instructor was teaching me about what's required to get my pilots licence on the way (I thought I was too old! he soon set me straight!) so I'm going to book a lesson soon!
My favourite part was touching down on the runway, on the same tyre marks that were left by warbirds years ago. not many people get to do that, which I'll remember next time i'm at the airshow
