"Absolutely Brilliant Experience."

FLY IN A SPITFIRE

To fly in a Spitfire is the ultimate bucket list experience, so why compromise? Book an Aero Legends Spitfire Flight Experience

We operate two Two-Seat Spitfires and both have been converted to the Vickers Supermarine dual control, two-seat design. This gives you the full Spitfire experience with excellent visibility over the famous elliptical wing throughout your Spitfire Flight.

We are proud to have probably some of the most experienced pilots on these Marques flying for us. Many of which have long and successful careers with the RAF including the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight and the Red Arrows.

The airfields from which we operate are carefully selected based on the iconic landmarks you can overfly, the local flight height restrictions and the impact of commercial air traffic. Headcorn Aerodrome (Kent) and North Weald Airfield (Essex/Cambs) benefit from no commercial traffic therefore no lengthy wait for a departure slot.

As famous WW2 RAF stations – Headcorn Aerodrome (RAF Lashenden 1943 – 1945) and North Weald Airfield (RAF North Weald 1916 – 1964) – both are perfect for attending friends and family. We have our own private areas for a safe day out with the aircraft. There are ample viewing areas overlooking the operations area and runway meaning your guests can be truly involved in the Spitfire Flight experience.

YOUR DAY WITH US

ARRIVAL

Aero Legends staff greet you by the aircraft and proceed with your check-in. All airfields have parking and good facilities. Each airfield has a café and bar, we encourage your family and friends to savour the atmosphere and share your day. Your day will start with a flight briefing where you will receive all the practical safety information required to fly in a Spitfire – as approved by the CAA.

YOUR AIRCRAFT

A unique once in a lifetime opportunity to experience a flight in a Two-Seat Spitfire. This is a very rare and unique experience, made more amazing when you’re flying in an actual Spitfire used during WWII combat in the Battle for Normandy. During your flight you will experience the sights, sounds and smells of the cockpit and communicate with your pilot, viewing the skills and techniques it takes to fly such an historic aircraft.

PHOTOGRAPHY AND VIDEO

Cockpit video footage is taken for each Spitfire flight. Buy the optional video when you buy the flight online or buy on your flight day. The video will be at least cockpit footage from a cockpit facing camera. If the video footage fails in any way – we will refund any video charge only – you cannot re-take a flight due to a video failure. Your guests can take photos and videos from the ample viewing areas assigned at each aerodrome.
